The course runs for 5 weeks starting September 11 th and ends October 13th.  All classes are conducted online. Each week a new learning module will be introduced to read and review, and includes study assignments that you complete at your own pace during that week. Each following week, solutions to the study assignments will be posted so you can check your work. There will also be opportunities to interact with your classmates in online discussion forums where you will evaluate and collaborate on quality-related topics.

The course fee is $99.00 and includes all class materials. There is an optional textbook if you desire to obtain it; however, all necessary study materials are available online on the course learning platform. The optional reference guide is: The Memory Jogger 2: Tools for Continuous Improvement (Second edition, 2010), By Michael Brassard, Diane Ritter, Publisher: GoallQPC, ISBN: 978-1-57681-113-9.

The content for each week will be available for review/access throughout the duration of the course if you want to go back to review something.

The course is open to anyone; participants do not have to be ASQ members
