Free Job Training Classes for Veterans

October 10, 2013

iStock_000018457828XSmallLocal veterans and their families may get a leg up in their job search under a new collaborative program that offers enhanced computer and productivity training for the workplace.

The Veterans Productivity Pathway is a free program designed to prepare veterans and their dependents for positions in productivity-related jobs, such as project management, production and operations. This new initiative is the result of a collaborative partnership between Lean Sigma Professionals, The Employers Association and Goodwill Industries of the Southern Piedmont.

Participation in the Veterans Productivity Pathway is first-come, first-serve for up to 30 qualifying veterans. The program is designed in three consecutive phases that build upon one another, including Excel training, a three-day Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt certification and a six-day Lean Six Sigma Green Belt certification. Lean Six Sigma is a managerial concept combining Lean and Six Sigma that results in increased productivity in the workplace. Multiple dates for the Excel training are offered in October. The three-day Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt certification will be offered November 5-7 and November 12-14. The six-day Lean Six Sigma Green Belt classes will be offered in December and January.
