|The Oregon Bioscience Association has created a unique program to help develop high-skilled workers for the state's advanced manufacturing industry. It was designed in cooperation with some of the fastest growing high-tech employers in Oregon.
This program is currently recruiting for the third cohort of students to receive its Advanced Manufacturing professional development certificate (as well as Lean Six Sigma Green Belt certification). The next certificate cohort is scheduled to begin May 17, 2016.
There are a small number of openings in each cohort, so the program will be very selective. You must be an unemployed or underemployed resident of Oregon or Washington, and be available on each of the specificied days for full-time immersion training.
Participants in the Lean Six Sigma Green Belt training program need to have good communication skills, and a working knowledge of high school algebra. You don't need a college degree, but experience with computers and Microsoft Excel is required. Prior team leadership or team member experience and familiarity with statistical methods would be beneficial but is not essential.
The program will conclude with an opportunity for company hiring personnel to get to know the successful participants. Alumni will remain connected through regular networking events.
