APR Training

To help expand campus capabilities beyond our office, APR offers training for individuals on campus who want to become familiar with and learn to apply the concepts of Lean Six Sigma and Performance Measurement. We are fortunate to have excellent instructors in the School of Business Executive Education and Engineering Professional Development who have partnered with us to develop curriculum and present it in the context of our program.

A few points to note about all of our training opportunities:

  • There is no cost to attend
  • We will take care of the course registration for you
  • Upon completion, APR courses will be reflected as professional development in your OHRD record
  • We are happy to offer this training at no cost, but please understand APR's expectations that you will 1) attend your entire course and 2) serve as a participant in appropriate APR or other university projects when asked.

APR also offers Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Certification for those interested in fully integrating process improvement into their work.
