Certification Preparation Requirements & Training
For all GSQI certifications – except for functional Leader and Business Leader certifications – it is mandatory for registrants to accumulate a prescribed number of Preparation Completion Credits (PCCs). A certain minimum number of PCCs are required by you to be able to become eligible for the certification assessments/ examination. These PCCs have to be collected by registrants either through self-study mode or through classroom training/ MasterClasses conducted by GSQI Authorized Training Providers (ATPs).

Preparation Completion Credits Through Self Study mode
If you have opted for the self-study mode to prepare for your chosen GSQI Certification, you have to collect your PCCs online by submitting required assignments for each module after you have completed the study for that module.

After receiving this PCC application from your Training Head, GSQI will assign you the PCCs as appropriate.
