Course Information

Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Overview

This Black Belt training course is the third Lean Six Sigma certification in our range.


This Black Belt training course is divided into two modules. The first module will teach Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt, which outlines the main components of Lean Six Sigma. The first module will also cover the Lean Six Sigma Green Belt, which builds upon knowledge acquired at the Yellow Belt level and introduces the Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control (DMAIC) model. The second module will focus on the Black Belt itself.


Ultimately, the Black Belt provides delegates with everything they need to establish themselves as Lean Six Sigma experts. Delegates will be introduced to a variety of tools they can use to analyse and identify where business developments should occur.


The Black Belt produces efficient managers who possess extensive analytical skills, which allow them to determine appropriate resolutions to business problems. By the end of the course, Black Belts will be able to implement DMAIC methodology effectively, and be capable of delivering and managing Lean Six Sigma projects successfully.
