Have my CQE - Is it worth "backfilling" other Certifications

Hello,

I'm a senior QE in my organization; and mainly on my own volition (the organization currently is ambivalent at best), I and some coworkers have reciently taken the ASQ CQE exam as a way to benchmark ourselves, cement the role of QEs in our organization, and work to codify the Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities of our QEs against established standards.

Now that I have received my CQE, I was curious as to the community's thoughts on going "back" and getting "earlier" ASQ certifications specifically CQT and CCT. I intend on going on and getting my CQM/OE and maybe some others which I envision as being additional to the CQE BOK but I'm interested in the value in adding the others to my portfolio as ASQ seems to indicate them earlier in the suggested career path progression (unfortunately as a new member here I can't include the ASQ links).

To put it one way, do people feel the CCT "trumps" the CQT and are they both trumped by the CQE?

Phrased a different way am I adding additional value to myself in having the additional certifications(s) and perhapse more importantly is there greater level of mastery of the corresponding BOKs to be gained by me in "going back"?

Thoughts? Thanks,

David

Welcome to the Cove!

With the possible exception of CQA I wouldn't bother "back filling" with other certs. I see no point really, unless you want more specific technical lessons in things like mechanical inspection. CQT has a lot of inspection subjects in it too. If you want to further your career (in this job or if you are considering moving on) many employers are still placing value on the CSSBB.
