Improve Business Processes and Sustain Quality Improvement

Six Sigma programs are designed to prepare you with the background you need for Quality and Process Improvement. Our programs are based on the American Society for Quality (ASQ) with hands-on, project-based learning opportunities. As an integral part of each program, you will complete a project that improves an area within your organization. The project work will require work-place activities (or work-like setting), with genuine project responsibilities.

Who Should Attend

Those responsible for managing business process improvements in manufacturing or design organizations will benefit from this program. Typical participants include managers, engineers, professional staff, and hands-on line staff in operations, systems, finance, and business administration. You will gain an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the quality and process improvements that will improve your organization.
