Final course in the CE ACC Web Development Program. Develop a website that demonstrates the range of skills and abilities acquired during the program. Students will design and develop a website for an existing organization, under supervision of one ACC Web Development Program faculty members acting as a mentor.

The mentor broadly defines the requirements for this final, "capstone" project, approves the client selection for the projects, assigns milestones, and is available for advice (both technical and in dealing with clients) during regular progress reviews. After the mentor approves the project, they submit the completed project to the Capstone Review Committee for final approval and determination of credit. No classroom meetings; one-on-one with a mentor. Required Prerequisites: Completion of all other requirements for an ACC Web Development Certificate.

This course prepares students for the American Society for Quality (ASQ) "Six Sigma Green Belt" certification exam. This course is a refresher study of the ASQ Certified Six Sigma Green Belt Body of Knowledge. It may also be used to prepare for the IASSC Green Belt certification exam, since ASQ and IASSC use a very similar body of knowledge. Topics include business process management, quality management techniques, project management, DMAIC methodology, statistical applications and methods, design of experiments, lean enterprise principles, and Design for Six Sigma. The student will focus on the methodology and application of these Green Belt skills by studying the assigned materials and taking sample exams containing questions similar to those on the actual CSSGB exam. These sample exams and their answers will be reviewed as part of preparation for the certification exam. Note that this course does not include the ASQ certification exam. See the ASQ website for prerequisites and application information for the Green Belt certification exam: asq.org/cert/six-sigma-green-belt.
