Six Sigma Green Belt

Six Sigma seeks to eliminate process variation. Six Sigma uses data, measurements, and statistics to identify inefficiencies and eliminate defects. Any time a process fails to deliver a good product, there is a cost incurred. In a typical company, this “cost of poor quality” represents 15 to 20 percent of revenue and is often hidden. Implementing Six Sigma will improve productivity, throughput, quality, delivery times, and customer satisfaction. Also, you will see decreases in rework, defects, “fire-fighting”, overtime, and operating costs. 

Who Should Take This Course:

Six-Sigma Green Belt is intended for those interested in improving current processes. By applying Six Sigma tools to projects closely related to their current duties, Green Belts create significant, measurable impacts for businesses. The Six-Sigma Green Belt Solutions Program develops the technical skills of the individuals selected to become key Six Sigma Project Team Members and leaders of smaller Six Sigma projects.

American Sign Language I (Zoom virtual classroom)

Deaf or Hard of Hearing means a person cannot hear in the “normal” way, but this does not mean there is a deficiency. It simply means we must be creative in accomplishing certain tasks.  Workforce Solutions of Northeast State is sponsoring an eight week class in American Sign Language (ASL) with the focus of not only learning basic to intermediate signs, but learning to think in ASL terms allowing for proper usage. Learning correct context and ASL order is essential to effective communication.  

Upon the completion of this “hands on” course, students will have a better understanding of Deaf history and culture as well as up to intermediate communication skills.  Whether to simply enjoy the beauty of this visual language or to be functional in your work or community environment, this class will give you a “hand up” and put knowledge “at the tips of your fingers
