Hi! My name’s Andy and I’m the Author behind CQE Academy.
I’ve been working in the Medical Device industry for a little more than 5 years now. 2 years on the manufacturing side of new product/process development and another 3 years as a Quality Engineer focusing on customer complaints and other root cause investigations.
I’m passionate about learning new things and I enjoy sharing new ideas with others.
My Thoughts on Quality
First off, I believe that Quality is a competitive advantage, contributing significantly both to the bottom line but also to the long term viability of an organization.
Quality is not a tool. Lean & Six Sigma are tools. Quality is commitment, from everyone in an organization.
That commitment is to meet or exceed the customers expectations and to continually improve your product or process such that you’re delivering maximum value to your customer.
In this way, Quality will ensure the long term viability of your organization.
About CQE Academy
I don’t know about you, but I learn through teaching. I’ve always found that if I can explain a concept to someone else, that it helps me learn that concept better. Which is one of the original reasons I started this site. I knew that I could become a CQE by writing about the different topics. Since becoming a CQE, I’ve really expanded from my initial goal of learning the topics myself, to helping others become a CQE.
In becoming an expert on the certification process and the concepts with the exam, I’ll be able to put you on the quickest path to certification.
As I study for the exam I intend on posting my study notes for others to read and review.
I’ll also be working to create easily digestable content to help you get certified; things like::
- Articles, Podcasts & Webinars
- YouTube Videos
- Guide to Online Resources
- Hardcopy Study Guide
- E-book Study Guide
- Practice Exams
- Exam Day Cheat Sheet
I want to say a very big thank you to all my friends and family who have supported me in attempting this project!
A special thanks to my Wife, Jenny, without her love and support, none of this would have been possible.
Also – Thank you! Thank you for choosing CQE Academy for your study needs and thank you for helping me make this site great! I know with your help and feedback, I will provide maximum value to others.
If you’re new, again I’m here to help you, so if you have any questions or comments (or suggestions!) about anything please feel free to contact me anytime.
