CCC offers Six Sigma Green Belt Training

Clackamas Community College is offering classes to improve business management. The school's Customized Training and Development Services offers Six Sigma Green Belt Training to improve quality management, reduce defect rates and improve profitability.

Classes begin May 9 and meet two days a week in June, July and September. Dates may be modified slightly to meet the schedules of students and the instructor. Classes will be held in DeJardin Hall at CCC's Oregon City campus.

Six Sigma Green Belt Training is geared toward professionals at all levels, including engineers, quality analysts, project managers, process improvement managers, advanced technicians and others who want to improve their organization's performance. The class will be taught by Mel Coffey, a Certified Master Black Belt Six Sigma instructor with 20 years' experience using the techniques. He has used Six Sigma tools with companies, including Precision Castparts, Volvo, General Electric, Pratt & Whitney, Honeywell and Sundstrand.

Six Sigma training provides participants with data-based problem-solving abilities that reduce defect rates in manufacturing, increase profitability, reduce lead time, and improve customer satisfaction. The strategy was developed by Motorola in 1986 and became well known when General Electric adopted the practices in 1995. Today Six Sigma is widely used.

The CTDS course will follow the standard Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control approach and will include some Lean concepts as well. Participants in the course will earn five college credits or five continuing education units and a Six Sigma Green Belt industry credential.
