About the Institute

How do I participate in the Virtual ASQ-3 & ASQ:SE-2 Comprehensive Institute?

Joining the Training through Zoom 

Each Zoom meeting has a unique Zoom invitation link and password. You will be sent the Zoom link by email. When you receive the link, you will need to “register” for the training (please do so ahead of time). To register for the training:

  • You will need to complete the Zoom registration form.
  • After registering, you will receive an automated email with an access link. The link is unique to you. Do not forward or share it.

Plan to join the training about 10 minutes before the start time. This will allow you to address any technological issues before the meeting begins. When you join the training, you will be placed within the Zoom “Waiting Room.” The host will admit you to the training at the appropriate time.

What is expected to participate virtually?

Community Expectations for Active Engagement

Virtual trainings can (and will) be interactive and engaging! Below are some general suggestions for how to actively and mindfully engage:

  • Be in the “ASQ Zone” by removing distractions from your environment. For example, close applications for email, websites, or other applications that may affect your ability to participate.
  • Create a comfortable workspace. Set up in a space where you can close the door and have space for your training materials and supplies.
  • Reduce background noise. Consider wearing noise-cancelling headphones to limit distractions during the training.
