    Problem Description: I have been trying to enroll in a course for greenbelt and my company reimbursement process requires college credit hours for any course completion. Do you know of any vendor that offers college credit?

    Texas State?   C’mon there…..  As a UT – Austin grad, I’ve got to say something.    It’s NOT “Texas State”, it’s the University of Texas.   I hate to be picky, although we didn’t make the Final Four, we do have some standards.

    I’m with you. Even though your sports have not been up to expectations lately you still have the best music and beer gardens in the world!
    I’d do the UT courses just to go drinking on 6th Street.

    Yep.  I agree.   Austin.  6th Street.   Bevo.   Lone Star Beer.    Shiner Bach.   The Oasis.   The County Line.   Lake Travis.  Hippie Hollow.   Threadgill’s.   etc.  etc.  etc…….
     Why else would anyone spend 10 years in college?   And then, I was thaaat close to post-doc, then maybe assistant professor, then maybe associate professor, then maybe professor (as in NEVER EVER leaving).   But, industry called…   (or, rather, massive college loan debts called – frequently)

    Too bad you quit, because we could be trashing you for your Piled Higher and Deeper degree.

    Darth,
    Trash away.   I was not clear in what I said.   I do have a PhD, I just did not do a post-doc, and then stay in academia, to my more than occasional regret.  But, the plan is to eventually return to teaching once industry has sucked the life out of me  (and that should not take a whole lot longer).

    He may be talking about the school formerly known as Southwest Texas State University in San Marcos…

    the info given has been helpful and i am persuing. However we talk sports remember ALABAMA 1961 (joe nameth,Ray Perkins and others) now that was a team. I was fortunate enough to play on the practice squad.

    Well then, sorry Dr. Newby.  Academia is a great place to retire to when you can afford it. Save your paltry compensation and hopefully you can once again experience the joy and fulfillment of academia.

    Actually, Dr. Darth, it’s a little more complicated than that.  The way things have worked out over the years, I’m looking for a good university to buy.   Joy and fulfillment come in many flavors.   Right now I enjoy what I’m doing (life sucking though it may be).

    I hear U of Colorado is for sell … or is it just their football team?

    Buying Colorado football would be an interesting thought.   I understand that they have an especially tactful coach – fully embracing diversity and a fun time for players.

    I had the same issue and used the University of Michigan. As you can imagine, most case studies are based on automobile manufacturing. The University of Texas has a 2 week transaction black belt course as well.

    Southwestern College Professional Studies in Wichita Kansas will soon offer Greenbelt I and Greenbelt II courses online.  Taught by seasoned instructors, first courses teaches methods, second course teaches stats.  These are prep courses for ASQ Blackbelt Certification.  Contact me for more information.
