QI Macros® Awards 100th Free Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt Certification for Veterans
November, 2017 - – In 2015, KnowWare International Inc. began to offer a Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt Training and certification program free of charge for both active-duty and retired U.S. military personnel. This month, KnowWare International proudly announces that 100 veterans have taken advantage of this offer, completed the program, and received their Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt Certification.
In this program, students learn how to solve problems involving unnecessary and preventable delays, defects and deviation using the DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control) process. Students complete over eight hours of online video training, case studies, and exercises to master the Magnificent Seven Tools of Lean Six Sigma, familiarizing the participants with tools that will help identify and solve over 90% of the problems facing service, manufacturing and healthcare businesses. 
“Veterans have given so much,” says Jay Arthur, President and CEO of KnowWare International. “I’m proud to give back in this way, and to help so many veterans achieve a certification that will help them in their future careers.”
After completing the video training and exercises, participants can complete the final exam for certification online. While there is normally a $97 fee to cover administrative costs for certification, KnowWare International waives this certification fee for Veterans and active-duty and retired Military personnel. This free program for veterans, now in its third year, remains in effect.
Since it’s difficult, if not impossible, to do Six Sigma projects without software, participants are able to download a 30-day trial of QI Macros® SPC Software which works in Excel 2007-2016 in Windows 7, 8, 10 and Mac OSX. QI Macros has been simplifying process improvement and Lean Six Sigma for hundreds of thousands of users since 1997. QI Macros contains 49 charts and 100+ fill-in-the-blank templates that slashes the Lean Six Sigma learning curve. 
Jay Arthur is the author of Lean Six Sigma Demystified, Lean Six Sigma for Hospitals, and QI Macros® SPC Software for Excel.
