Easy RUs - Webcasts

Vinson Dill, Recert Chair

Need more Recertification Units (RU) for your next due date?

I’ve noticed that few people take advantage of a free webinars / webcasts offered monthly by ASQ to its members when turning in RU for their recertificaton. These webinars cover topics on the BoK (Body of Knowledge) and career enhancing topics, both requirements of RU. They usually range in length from 15 ~ 55 minutes. Webcasts are prerecorded and can be viewed from the web or downloaded and watched at your convenience. I personally find it most useful to download them and watch them while traveling from my laptop.  All you need is a valid AQS log-on.

To date I have downloaded 35 webcasts to my hard drive which include topics such as (active links are currently available):

  • Essential Quality Tools Serious (18 different topics to date)
  • Juran's Quality Handbook
  • Management of the Process for Customer Reported Software Problems-
  • Service Quality Division BoK Update Webinar
  • Quality In Manufacturing (3 topics)
  • And Several Career Transition / Enhancement Webcasts

 RU for electronic media viewing is as follows.

            15 minutes = 0.025 RU or 60 minutes = 0.10 RU

 You do need to watch for the free offers in ASQ e-newsletters. They are usually only available to download for free for a month or two. You will find notification of these webcast most often found in:

 ASQ Friday Fast Facts

Free Member Gift! -  from ASQ Member Benefits

I have confirmed with ASQ Headquarters in Milwaukee and these webcast are accepted for RU.
