(Milwaukee) -- The Certification Board of ASQ (American Society for Quality) is pleased to announce that Sasha Zucker has completed the requirements to be named an ASQ-Certified Quality Improvement Associate (ASQ CQIA). As such, Sasha Zucker has reached a significant level of professional recognition, indicating a proficiency in and a comprehension of quality principles and practices. Individuals who earn this certification are allowed to use "ASQ CQIA" on their business cards and professional correspondence.

"ASQ provides certification as a way to provide formal recognition to professionals who have demonstrated an understanding of, and a commitment to, quality techniques and practices in their job and career," explains E. David Spong, ASQ president. "This is a great accomplishment and, although not a formal registration or licensure, it represents a high level of peer recognition."

Since 1968, when the first ASQ certification examination was given, more than 170,000 individuals have taken the path to reaching their goal of becoming ASQ-Certified in their field or profession, including many of who have attained more than one designation.
