Engineering Job Options: Quality Inspector

Any product that is produced in any industry must be tested for quality to ensure those products meet standards and comply with local, state and federal regulations. Quality inspectors are integral to this process, examining raw materials and material goods on a production line, testing the end product and maintaining all documentation and reporting.

Required Education And Experience

Quality inspectors are not typically required to hold any specific degree and employers often have their criteria when hiring for these roles. In many cases, an associate’s degree is the minimum requirement, but employers tend to be more interested in hands-on experience than a degree.

Quality inspector roles are not entry-level. They require expertise and typically, people work their way into quality inspection from other jobs within manufacturing and production. Many industries do offer certifications for quality inspectors to help them prove their expertise and gain marketability in the field.

Job Outlook

Quality inspectors are found in every organization that produces a product, from food to heavy machinery and everything in between. Because the field is so broad, it is difficult to predict employment growth in the industry, however, Indeed posts an average hourly wage of around $28 per hour for quality inspectors in the Canton, Georgia area.
