Quality Assurance Basics for Manufacturing

at MiraCosta College

about the quality assurance basics for manufacturing course

San Diego County is filled with manufacturing companies. That means that the thousands of products that are made have to be inspected to ensure the quality meets or exceeds customer expectations. Whether it’s a screw that goes into your body or a solar array on a satellite, it’s critical that the part is made and assembled correctly. This workshop provides students with an overview of quality assurance concepts within the manufacturing industry.

This class can be taken individually, or as part of a larger certificate program. Find out more.
