Engineers often move into assignments such as Quality Engineer, Quality Manager, Project Quality Leader, etc. as they progress on their career path. While the typical engineer may understand portions of the quality management system in their organization, they may not have had the opportunity to learn what is involved in an effective quality management system. Moving into the role of Quality Manager can be a natural career progression, thus learning about quality management systems can enhance your value to the organization.

Leading or managing the quality team in an organization involves understanding the characteristics and requirements for quality management systems. The characteristics of effective quality management systems are the focus of this course.
