Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Training online - April 30-July 1, 2018

New this year, the course length has been extended to 8 weeks to give the students more time to review the material and to work on their exam.

The course will be led by Mohammad Khasawneh, PhD, professor and chair of the Systems Science and Industrial Engineering Department at Binghamton University's Thomas J. Watson School of Engineering and Applied Science. This program is open to students, alumni, government and industry attendees and designed for all those interested in understanding and applying Lean Six Sigma concepts to their workplace.

The 18-hour course will be available starting Monday, April 30 , and conclude with a comprehensive take-home exam due by July 1st. Please note the comprehensive exam is quite lengthy and will require 10-20h of effort to complete, so make sure you can carve out this amount of time! For those who do not have the required current background/knowledge of probability and statistics, a six-hour statistics pre-course is also available.

This online program is open to students, alumni, government, non-profit and industry attendees.
