Small Business Certification

Supporting Small Business Certification Services for 25 Years!

In today's fast-paced world, it is critical to choose the right partner as your registrar, and SQA is that partner. You may not have heard of us, and that's OK. We don't spend money on advertising campaigns, trade show appearances or self-promotion. Instead, we put our money into our processes, clients and auditors to provide you with the best possible service. We grow our business using the most powerful marketing tool available — the success of our clients!

Here's what makes us stand out from our competitors.

  • Personal touch (communication). We still believe in customer service, so when you call, we pick up the phone. And if you have a question, we'll get you an answer. Our trained auditors will either answer you directly, or get you an answer within 24 hours. We understand that time is money, and that you don't want to waste your time waiting for answers.
  • Client training (education). Once a year, at our Akron, Ohio, office, we offer a free day of training for your company and your stakeholders. And if you can't attend, all of the presentations and videos are available in our Customer Training Portal online, so that training is available to you and your team any time you need it. Use it as a tool to onboard new employees, or use it as a refresher course for team members.
  • Account management (preparation). With SQA, your auditor is your account manager, giving you direct access to the person who performs and schedules your audit. Having one direct point of contact streamlines the process for you and helps you avoid having to do extra work managing the certification process. And our auditors are backed up by a full-time staff to assist you.
