Virginia SPQA offers Baldrige Excellence Framework training events publically and on-site at organizations.

Public Offerings occur, subject to demand, regionally at various locations across Virginia.

The standard public offering is “An Inquirer’s Guide to the Baldrige Excellence Framework.” This two-day course offers an in-depth review of the Framework, which includes the Baldrige Criteria for Performance Excellence and is a pre-requisite for new Examiners and highly recommended for individuals who wish to be proficient in the Framework. Registration fees include lunch. Watch the Virginia SPQA homepage for offerings and/or sign up for email notifications.

On-Site Offerings are listed in the Virginia SPQA Training – Bring Us to You catalog available for download below. On-site offerings can be a better value for organizations which wish to train multiple individuals without having to pay travel costs. On-site offerings are also more varied including more focused half-day and full-day topics. The catalog includes cost information, a course description as well as a listing of who the class is designed for. Click here  to check our calendar for upcoming training opportunities.
