The Six Sigma Specialist

Six Sigma Specialists are tasked with supporting the project lead, most likely a Six Sigma Black Belt and provides a stepping stone to this advanced classification as well. Successful participants in this class will be poised to work on small, defined Six Sigma projects within an organization, requiring less oversight by the assigned manager (presumably a Six Sigma Black Belt). This ability to free up supervisory time reduces costs and increases productivity for entire projects, which presents significant value to both current and prospective employers. Whether in healthcare, finance, government, manufacturing or any other industry, Six Sigma Green Belt training is ideal for current professionals looking toward advancement in their current position as well as individuals looking to gain employment with any firm that utilizes these concepts and techniques.

I had someone there every step of the way. They walked me through what could have been a very stressful process. It put me on a path that started an epic journey.

-Kasey, Fort Riley

Everything was easy and my advisor with The Major Group walked me through it all. This was my third time going to college and by far the least stressful enrollment process.

-Felicia, Ft. Campbell

I loved the whole process. Everyone was very helpful and made sure that the program I wanted to join was something I wanted to do. It also helped me put my goals in place.

-Crystal, Fort Riley

There was a lot of help along the way, which was great. It was smooth and everything went well.

-Elizabeth, Fort Gordon

It was easy, simple, and quick. There was someone there every step of the way to help you fill out all the required documents. I would recommend to all military spouses who want to go to school, especially if you’re a stay-at-home spouse.

-Aeisha, Hunter Army Air Field

Everything was very easy to do and got done rather quickly from start to finish.

-Anne, Schofield Barracks, Hawaii

The enrollment process was quick and easy. Lots of help when needed.
