Testimonials

“Instructor was excellent; he kept things moving and made things easy to understand”

“Taught me to think outside the box, and look for creative/alternative solutions”

“Overall, the program was excellent! I really enjoyed it!”

"The program really challenged me to look at our organization from a different point of view.  One would think that the tools that were developed for manufacturing would not be transferrable to healthcare or services, but I would say that is far from the truth.  It is the thinking behind the tools that has benefitted our organization the most along with the support that the instructors give to you."

“The instructor used a lot of real-life examples that ranged across all areas. I really appreciate that”

 “I was impressed by the instructors and their knowledge”

“The instructor is engaging, easy to listen to”

Green Belt Program

Registration

CQAS's Green Belt training program is the entry level Lean Six Sigma program that includes active management participation, twelve (12) days of Green Belt training, a Green Belt project and certification. There is no prerequisite for entry into our Green Belt program.  It is offered both on the RIT campus (“open” enrollment) and on a contract basis at client organizations 

The "open” Green Belt program is delivered one day each week for twelve consecutive weeks. The program is led by a Lean Six Sigma expert instructor and will engage participants in extensive interactive training. Participants are exposed to each topic in depth through classroom assignments and structured exercises within a team environment.

Each participant is required to complete a project of significant value to their organization. Each project requires the completion of a Project Charter that describes objectives, team members, and  project costs and timeline. The Project Charter must be approved by both the organization’s management as well as CQAS. During the training program, participants will present progress reports. Pairs of participants from the same organization may work on the same project.
