A Certified Quality Auditor (CQA) is a professional that knows and employs the standards and principles associated with auditing. A CQA is capable of using various evaluation techniques to identify a production system’s strength and weakness in quality control.
A quality audit is a process that involves the systematic identification and examination of a production quality system. The Certified Quality Auditor has to analyze all elements of a quality system and assess its degree of adherence to the applicable industry criteria.
Each CQA certification candidate needs to pass a multiple choice examination that measures comprehension of the ASQ BOK (American Society for Quality Body of Knowledge) covering:
- Auditing Basics
- Process of auditing
- Auditor competencies
- Audit program and business applications
- Quality tools and techniques
The major focus of the CQA exam is on auditing practices.
