|Course Content||About Quality Management
The quality professional is well represented in all sectors of the economy. While manufacturing will use familiar titles such as Quality manager, or quality engineer other sectors may use titles such as transformation manager or change agent, director of quality or even more specific titles like Six-Sigma Black Belt. Quality as a profession is also well supported in the USA by the American Society for Quality [ASQ] and in the UK by The Chartered Quality Institute [CQI].
