The Manufacturing Technology Center offers a 12-week course of Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Training and Project Support. The course presents the Lean Six Sigma Green Belt body of knowledge in a hands-on, application oriented manner. Lean Six Sigma Green Belt tools will be demonstrated using a project simulation that takes the participant through the D-M-A-I-C process improvement methodology.

The format of this course was developed around a Train-and-Do approach. Participants will meet weekly, 8:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. for the classroom part of the course. Classroom activities will include a combination of lecture and hands-on simulation exercises.

Each 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 lead participants through completion of their individual project. MTC instructors will provide weekly, on-site support to mentor and coach the participants through the completion of these company specific projects.
