VALDOSTA — Wiregrass Georgia Technical College Department of Economic Development offers the Lean Six Sigma Green Belt certification course beginning Aug. 13.
Whether a business produces a good, or provides a service, the course can help a business function at its full potential, according to college officials. The course is designed to provide knowledge on how a business or industry can become more effective, efficient and a more productive environment.
The course consists of two segments: “lean” provides ways of cutting waste and helping businesses look at ways to become more efficient. The “Six Sigma” segment helps with production and using resources already available to a business that will improve customer service and affect the bottom line.
The Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Courses will meet Aug. 13-16 (Part I Introduction to Lean and Six Sigma, Define and Measure and Analyze), and Aug. 27-30 (Part II Improve, Control, Course Review and Certification Exam Prep).
Additional online coursework and project work will be required for Lean Six Sigma Green Belt certification beyond scheduled courses. All classes meet from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. at Wiregrass Georgia Technical College on the Valdosta campus.
The cost is $950 for one employee; $900 each for two employees or $850 each for three or more employees. Fees include textbook and certification exam.
