Course Overview
Based on the body of knowledge of the ASQ’s Certified Quality Engineer, this course has been developed in collaboration with the University of Limerick and Global Business Institute Ireland, for Irish Medtech Skillnet in response to the acute shortage of qualified quality engineers in the Medical Device and other industry sectors. The course is comprehensive, practical and completely covers all aspects of quality engineering including QMS design, documentation, process validation, auditing, capability analysis, MSA, data visualization, statistical decision making and medical device reliability.

Why Become a Quality Engineer?
Quality Engineers are in high demand across several industries including Medtech. To become a Quality Engineer you will have achieved a recognised mastery in the quality discipline - you will have the knowledge and skills required to improve the processes that drive customer satisfaction, which will improve the business performance of your organization.

You become certified by demonstrating the following core competencies through work experience and passing the examination:
Quality management and leadership - the philosophies and foundations of quality, its leadership principles and techniques, and proven communication skills.
Develop the quality management system (QMS) – design, documentation, standards and guidelines, quality training and auditing, and the cost of quality (COQ).
Design of products, processes, and services - classification of characteristics, verification and validation, and reliability and maintainability.
Critical skills required to implement effective product and process control - acceptance sampling, material control, metrology, and measurement system analysis.
Mastery of the quantitative tools and techniques that drive continuous improvement, from lean and corrective action to kaizen and Six Sigma.
Ability to summarize data, draw statistical conclusions, analyse distributions, test hypotheses, perform capability studies, and design and execute experiments.
Be fluent in risk management: its oversight, assessment, control, auditing, and testing
