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 how to organize and deploy an effective Quality Assurance department. Moving into the role of Quality Leader or Manager can be a natural career progression, thus learning about the functions, roles and responsibilities for a typical QA department or team can be important to career development and success.

Leading or managing the quality team in an organization involves understanding the roles and responsibilities of a typical Quality Assurance department, which is the focus of this course. A Simple & Effective Approach to Quality Assurance provides engineers and managers with the information necessary to organize and lead an effective QA department. This class will help you prepare for a role in quality leadership, or if you’re already in such a position, it will help you be more successful.

A Simple & Effective Approach to Quality Assurance provides useful information that will enable you and your organization to clearly define the roles and responsibilities for your QA function. This class will help you organize an effective QA department and includes:
