Lean Six Sigma Green Belt training begins next month

Aug 23 2017

New River Community College, in partnership 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 that includes a project simulation taking participants through the D-M-A-I-C (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control) process improvement methodology. Participants interested in Green Belt certification are required to have three years industry experience.

The training will be held on Thursdays, beginning Sept. 14, from 8 a.m. to noon in room 142 at NRCC’s New River Valley Mall site, Christiansburg.

Financial assistance is available. Training and certification can be obtained for one-third of the total cost for qualified students through the Workforce Credential Grant (WCG). More information about the WCG is available at

The course fee includes a copy of the book “CSSGB Primer,” 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.
