Hey, I'm Joshua T. Osborne

In 2015, I said goodbye to 16-hour days and hauling boxes up and down stairs for a living (I was a mover). I became a full-time entrepreneur, and I made my money by helping business owners make money.

They had a need, and because of Virtual Tool Booths., I could fill it. Through the methods taught by my all-time favorite course and mentor, I created a 6-figure business in roughly 6 months. I could retire today (at 37) and never have to worry about money ever again.

Because of Virtual Tool Booths., I was able to quit my job, work online with flexible hours, and move to the mountains (Colorado Springs if you’re wondering)...all while helping real people improve their businesses, incomes, and lives!

For most folks, a college degree is the biggest bill of their lives. I never went to college. So I don’t have any massive bills or giant debts hanging over my head. My greatest education came from Virtual Tool Booths. (for a tiny fraction of what college costs) and it’s the bill that pays ALL the bills - a hundred times over!

I really wanted to share this secret weapon with others, so they could change their lives the way I changed mine. So if you’re not 100% sure about college, or only researching to make someone else happy, Virtual Tool Booths. might be a better option for you.

What does a quality assurance inspector do?

Quality assurance inspectors monitor the standards of quality for nearly all manufactured products such as food, clothing, electronics, appliances, motor vehicles, and building components. They use a variety of testing methods to make sure products, services, and facilities are meeting the necessary requirements. They complete visual inspections and examine individual components or parts. In manufacturing positions, they inspect products as they are being assembled and complete thorough examination of finished products. They take note of problems and send items for repairs or corrections. Quality assurance inspectors are also responsible for maintaining quality records and developing reports for supervisors.

What kind of training does a quality assurance inspector need?

Quality assurance inspectors typically need at least a high school diploma. Most learn their skills through on the job training where they learn how to use special gauges, meters, computers, and other equipment, read blueprints, and the reporting and quality control methods. Some quality assurance inspectors complete formal training programs in testing and inspecting. Many also gain voluntary certification such as the Certified Quality Inspector designation from the American Society for Quality to remain competitive in the field. The requirements include work experience and passing a written examination. Continuing education courses are often required to maintain certification.

What are the prospects for a career as a quality assurance inspector?

Employment of quality assurance inspectors is expected to decline moderately, decreasing 7% from 2006 to 2016 (1). Automated inspection and other professionals taking over responsibilities contribute to the job decline.

Job prospects are expected to be fair because there will be many job openings from the need to replace quality assurance inspectors that retire, transfer, or leave the field for other reasons. Quality assurance inspectors with extensive experience and advanced skills will have the best job opportunities.

Good eye-hand coordination, detail orientation, patience, and self-motivation are also essential qualities. Quality assurance inspectors must have excellent communication and interpersonal skills because they interact with a variety of other workers and sometimes customers.
