Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt training offered through NRCC this fall

Aug 24 2022

New River Community College has an upcoming Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt training session that can help businesses reduce costs and increase productivity.

Yellow Belt is an eight-week course for entry-level employees seeking to improve their role in the company by using the concepts and methodologies of Six Sigma. The train-and-do process uses classroom activities, combining lecture and simulation exercises.

According to American Society for Quality, one corporation reported $1.6 million in savings within the first year of implementing a Six Sigma initiative.

The training is held in Christiansburg on Fridays beginning October 14 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. The regular price for the program is $1,200, but with special state funding, the discounted price is $400. Additional financial assistance may also be available.

The course is one of 11 NRCC FastForward programs that provide affordable and short-term training through the Office of Workforce Development.

To register, visit www.nr.edu/fastforward/yellow-belt.php; call 540-674-3613 or email WFDtraining@nr.edu.
