GRT Adds More Courses and Dates

Another Six Sigma Black Belt / program started September 24, 2004.
The 20- week program prepares participants for achieving the ASQ Black Belt certification. Registration for the next program in September 2004 has started. [details]

Information on QS-9000 & ISO/TS 16949
It appears the move toward TS 16949 replacing QS-9000 has begun.

The Big Three have announced (Automotive Supplier Quality Requirements Task Force) that they have no intention of revising QS-9000 to align with ISO 9000:2000.

The consequence of this means that as of December 15, 2003, QS-9000 companies will no longer be certified to ISO 9000. QS-9000 third edition, which is based on ISO 9000:1994 will remain in effect until December 14, 2006, however after December 15, 2003 certification to QS-9000 will become a stand-alone certificate and will no longer include ISO 9001 (for more information see the latest IASG sanctioned interpretations).

We have some good news regarding the success of our last Six Sigma Black Belt program.
Two of the participants, Liz Roberts of Wrigley Canada and Henry Van Oudenaren of
Sigma-Aldrich Canada, decided to write the ASQ exam after taking our program, which
prepares them for the exam. Although the exam has a very low pass rate, both passed.
Congratulations, Liz and Henry!
