ASQ requires that you recertify the following certifications every three years to ensure that you maintain the same level of knowledge demonstrated in your first exam.
NOTE: Mechanical Inspector, Quality Improvement Associate, Quality Process Analyst, Quality Technician and Six Sigma Green Belt are lifetime certifications. They have no recertification requirements.
There are two ways to recertify:
Recertification Unit (RU) Credits: Obtain a minimum of 18 recertification units during your three-year certification period.
If you are going to recertify using RU Credits, you will need to send your Recertification package to:

Phone: (501) 663-8800
Examination: Sit for the exam. (Required if your certification expired and is past the six-month grace period.)
