The dimensional inspection (metrology) program at Danville Community College has passed the first students through the American Society of Quality Certified Six Sigma Yellow Belt certification including Robert “Spencer” Mason and Stephen Rouech.

Historically students have had the opportunity to test for the ASQ – Certified Quality Inspector; through advisory board driven curriculum changes, the Six Sigma Yellow Belt certification was added for the 2018-2019 cohort. According to asq.org, the Six Sigma Yellow Belt certification is aimed at those new to the world of Six Sigma who have a small role, interest or need to develop foundational knowledge.

Yellow belts can be entry-level employees who seek to improve their world or executive champions who require an overview of Six Sigma and define, measure, analyze, improve and control model (DMAIC).

The students will sit for the certified quality inspector in the coming weeks.
