Get credits for where you work

I currently work in the synthetic diamond industry for a company called USSynthetic.  We create diamond cutter inserts for oil drilling drill bits.  This company is big on Lean Fundamentals.  I went through a lean course at work and have applied the things that I learned here on a daily basis.

I recently found out from my boss that they teach lean fundamentals at the university I work for.  After looking into it I found that its possible to get 16 credits hours from that knowledge.

 

 

 

This isn’t the first time I’ve heard of people getting college credit for what they’ve learned or know through work.  It is defiantly worth looking into.
