Quality Control Certificate

This certificate program provides training and instruction in the proper use of data analysis and techniques of statistical quality control, including frequency distributions, process control charts, six sigma concepts and sampling plans. In addition, the course work provides a basis for practical implementation of these techniques in the quality control system of an industrial or service organization. An in-depth investigation of the techniques and tools of quality control, the role of quality costs, the determination of customer needs, total quality management, the Six Sigma Methodology, and feedback to further improve the quality system are integral components of this program.

Candidates for this program are required to be formally admitted to Purdue University North Central. Mathematics placement tests are required prior to taking any mathematics course. A certificate will be presented to those who successfully complete all course work.
