The planned activities will assure the CSUDH Quality programs remain current in the content and support the mission of the University, College of Extended and International and Extended Education, as well as the program itself. Item I:Develop CEU certificate program to support the Measurement Science Conference. Item II:Request additional information as to the goal for developing CEU credit for CCE CAPE training. Item III:Formalize BSQA Metrology Certificate of Completion Item IV:Contact instructors for QAS 512, 513, and 514 to include class assignment or activity supporting MSQA SLO #4. Item V:Revise QAS 538 to address biostatistics. This revision will further address SLOC #7 and review if revised QAS 538 can replace QAS 530 for a Healthcare specific MSQA track. Item VI: Revise SLOCs #4 and #7 to be more applicable to the current needs of Quality professionals. Item VII:Develop new version of QAS523 Software Quality. Place QAS 523 in refrigerator. New course to include elements of software quality, but move focus to IT and suspect/counterfeit issues. Item VIII: Develop three (3) new MSQA elective courses: Hoshin Planning, Sustaining Quality Improvement, Laboratory Accreditation and Proficiency Testing IX:Revise MSQA program to 3 tracks, Manufacturing (minor program changes), Service (minor program changes), and Healthcare (new track, but existing classes available for this track).
