This course is for senior level decision makers, general managers, supervisors, group leaders, quality managers, and any discipline that wants to upgrade their Six Sigma training from Green Belt to Black Belt Certification to nurture their managerial and leadership abilities to improve business processes and sustain quality improvements.

Those who achieve Six Sigma Black Belt are not only educated on the methodologies of Six Sigma, they are also prepared to become a change agent within their organization, leading efforts to improve processes and the quality of products and services delivered to customers. 

After successfully completing the Six Sigma Black Belt course, participants will be able to explain multiple regression, perform factorial experiments, determine size calculations needed for experiments, and describe the different types of process optimization. Typically, Black Belt projects save $50K to $100K in cost savings in process improvement.

Our staff has more than 100 years of combined experience working side-by-side with business owners to evaluate, strategize, discover and implement solutions that address both strategic growth needs and organizational transformation.

MRC breaks down the barriers that prohibit manufacturers from realizing their full potential. Our proven tactics and methods can help nearly any company at nearly any stage of its evolution. Whatever the hurdle – going green, becoming lean, entering new markets, rebranding the company – MRC can help you clear it.

Workforce Initiatives

Developing Future Workforce with programs like: What’s So Cool About Manufacturing®, PA Dream Team, the Inside Manufacturing Series, and Manufacturing Day.
