Technically speaking, I am not (or we are not) qualified to discuss about this subject, because I am not a certified quality engineer per se.
Philosophically I strongly believe that “Much more things grow in the garden than the gardener sows.” (“The gardener” in this case is CSQ.)
Currently there are several “learning/qualification” programs available. A case in my mind is the so-called “green belt/ black belt/champion”--the “ career ladder” of the Six Sigma programs, for example. But there are many trouble of this branch of “off-line trainings”. They normally too technical oriented. In real organizations, “technical-oriented “( for quality ) might be meaningless or powerless.
( Several weeks ago, I had a long discussion with a CEO on the Chinese booming black belt trainings. His comments were quite interesting.) Please also refer to a report on the Hwawei :華為員工“生死門” --上周林博華先生提到該公司買書和這些"傳言"之片段.......
If I can be of some help in this thread, I like to remind us reviewing several related chapters of the Juran’s Quality Handbook.
