Workforce Development Offering Six Sigma Course at No Cost to Qualified Small Businesses

Mount Wachusett Community College is pleased to announce the addition of a Six Sigma Lean Green Belt course for this fall at no cost to qualifying small businesses through the Workforce Training Fund Program.

Six Sigma is a set of tools and techniques used by companies to improve production processes, reduce defects and increase quality. Six Sigma certification demonstrates that a company is dedicated to producing and delivering high quality products, on time, enabling companies to reduce costs and potentially increase sales.

“Being able to provide programs like Six Sigma at no cost to small businesses during a time when so many of these customers are struggling is truly what the Workforce Development Division is all about,” stated Colleen Clark, Assistant Dean of Workforce Development.

The Six Sigma Lean Green Belt course is an 8-day training program delivered in four modules, one for each of the Six Sigma road map steps: Measure, Analyze, Improve, and Control. Businesses with fewer than 100 employees in Massachusetts qualify to receive this training at no cost and with no grant writing involved. The course is relevant for technical employees in a manufacturing environment but can also be effective for those in materials control, finance, and information technology.

The Workforce Training Fund provides businesses with the resources to invest in the Massachusetts workforce and improve employee skills, and to maintain the economic strength and viability of the Commonwealth’s businesses.

The MWCC Department of Workforce Development delivers high-quality corporate instruction and workforce development training at the most affordable prices for businesses in the North Central Massachusetts service area. From assisting companies with accessing Workforce Training Fund grants to delivering top-notch customized contract training, anytime, anywhere. Investing in training your staff will increase productivity, improve sales, increase profit and allow your company to do business better, faster, and more efficiently.
