Sedalia, Missouri – Sept. 20, 2022– State Fair Community College’s The LearningForce has rescheduled its Six Sigma Green Belt training to 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Wednesdays starting Oct. 12 and ending Nov. 9. Deadline to enroll is Oct. 4. If class is full, applicants may be placed on a waiting list. The training was originally scheduled to start Sept. 28.
Six Sigma Green Belt is a methodology used to solve operational problems with data collection, analysis and process development that result in fewer deficiencies and higher quality. People who are responsible for operations, quality and engineering process or who want to prepare for the American Society for Quality (ASQ) certification exam should participate in this workforce training.
Applying Six Sigma Green Belt methods means less variation in processes, efficient production cycle, fewer defects, and faster business transactions. Overall costs and inventory costs are lowered. Physical work space and facility needs are reduced, and communication between customers and businesses are improved.
ASQ certified Black Belts and Green Belts with extensive real-world experience deliver the training. Participants will apply their training to a real-life business project that develops improvement skills such as data collection and analysis, process map development and deployment. Participants should have some experience in process improvement and reasonable understanding of mathematics and business processes. Steve Webster, a Lean Six Sigma Master Black Belt with more than 40 years of experience, is the instructor. Participants will each receive a one-hour session with Webster to work on a project.
Following course completion, participants are responsible for applying to take the ASQ Six Sigma Green Belt certification exam on their own. Exam fees are not included in the cost of the course, which is $4,500 per person. Missouri One Start grant funds may be applicable to cover the cost of the course.
