New River Community College, in conjunction with the Manufacturing Technology Center, is offering a 12-week Lean Six Sigma Green Belt and Project Support course.

The course presents the ASQ Lean Six Sigma Green Belt body of knowledge in a simulation workshop application-oriented manner. The training includes a project simulation that takes participants through the D-M-A-I-C (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control) process improvement methodology. The Train-and-Do process uses classroom activities, combining lecture and simulation exercises.

The training will be held on Wednesdays, beginning October 19, from 8 a.m. to noon inRoom 142 at NRCC's New River Valley Mall site, Christiansburg.

Virginia residents who qualify as part of the New Economy Workforce Credential Grant (WCG) Program will pay $850, which is one third of the full price of $2,550. More information about the WCG is available from: http://www.nr.edu/workforce/index.php#wcg .

The course fee includes a copy of the book "Six Sigma Demystified," cost of the ASQ certification exam and exam prep. Each Green Belt participant will be required to have a job-related and sponsor-approved project which should be selected prior to the start of the class. The course agenda is intended to teach the ASQ Lean Six Sigma Green Belt body of knowledge while leading participants through completion of their individual project. MTC instructors will provide weekly support to mentor and coach participants through the completion of projects.
