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.
