Why the Chartered Quality & Organizational Excellence Professional Designation
As a Quality & Organizational Excellence (QE) professional, you are a leader in your field. Employers, colleagues and clients turn to you for strategic advice, clear guidance, and leadership on all aspects of QE. Make the most of your QE knowledge and experience, and get started on the path towards the Chartered Professional in Quality & Organizational Excellence (CPQE™) designation – the gold standard of QE professionals.
New York Professional Institute is the designated certifying body for Chartered Professional in the United States for the nationally and Internationally recognized Chartered Professional in Quality & Organizational Excellence (CPQE™) designation.
The CPQE designation, pronounced C-P-Q-E (each letter is said individually), represents a commitment to an International standard of excellence and sets a benchmark for the practice of effective Quality & Organizational Excellence. It emphasizes the strategic role of QE management in business and plays an important role in securing QE’s position as an equal business partner at the senior management table.
The CPQE™ designation signifies that an individual has achieved and continues to actively demonstrate mastery of the QE body of knowledge. Through a national examination and assessment process, each CPQE designate must demonstrate the core competencies relevant to the QE profession. Certification is an essential tool for maintaining high performance standards. The designation assures employers, clients and other QE professionals that a CPQE has committed to abiding by a professional code of ethics, a breach of which will result in disciplinary action including the possible removal of the designation.
CPQEs are required to report a minimum of 100 hours of professional development activity every three years on a cumulative basis and a minimum of 20 hours each year. Continuing Professional Development (CPD) signifies continued mastery of the CPQE Competency Framework, which outlines 44 discipline specific professional competencies.
The CPQE designation can enhance your career opportunities and compensation potential. An increasing number of organizations require or prefer that successful candidates for QE positions hold, or are working towards obtaining, the CPQE designation. This is particularly true for senior QE positions.
The CPQE designation is recognized by all CPQE Member Associations and can be transferred between these same Member Associations.
