Lean Six Sigma Courses

The Lean Six Sigma certifications are based on a belt system. The Knowledge Academy provides training courses for all belt levels.


Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt

Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt is the first certification level. The Yellow Belt qualification demonstrates knowledge of Lean Six Sigma principles and confirms that candidates are able to work confidently as part of a Lean Six Sigma team. As Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt is the first certification that can be acquired, the main elements of Lean Six Sigma and the implementation of this methodology to achieve business process developments are covered, therefore it is a suitable introductory training course. Candidates will learn how to solve problems and apply improvement techniques. The Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt course also aims to develop awareness and recognition of team members and their job roles. The Yellow Belt training course is the best place for candidates to begin their Lean Six Sigma journey, as the certification gives them access to further belt level training courses.


Lean Six Sigma Green Belt

Lean Six Sigma Green Belt is the second and most popular certification, which is all about executing a successful Lean Six Sigma project. Candidates start to enhance their understanding of value and root causes, and as a result gain knowledge of project risk management. They will analyse data of root causes and value and learn how to interpret such data correctly. As well as this, candidates will learn about the DMAIC model which is the framework used to address and monitor changes made. The Lean Six Sigma Green Belt covers preparation, teamwork, and development strategies, whilst taking into account waste reduction, costs, and heightened quality performance for increased customer satisfaction.


Lean Six Sigma Black Belt

Next is the Lean Six Sigma Black Belt certification, which teaches individuals everything they need to become Lean Six Sigma experts. Candidates will acquire knowledge of the fundamental methods and tools they can use to analyse business means, in order to determine where improvements can be made. Management and analytical skills are strengthened, which consequently enables individuals to identify, assess, and choose a suitable solution to achieve increased efficiency. Overall, candidate ability to deliver and control Lean Six Sigma projects in an organised manner is enhanced.


Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Upgrade

The Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Upgrade training course is designed for those who hold the Green Belt and are keen to upgrade to the Black Belt. Black Belts are more committed to Lean Six Sigma than Green Belts as they work with the methodology every day in their own business development projects, unlike Green Belts who do not work with Lean Six Sigma as regularly. Black Belt training courses are centred around detailed statistical training, expanding analytical skills, and enhancing management skills so individuals have the ability to confidently administer and oversee Lean Six Sigma projects.


Lean Six Sigma Master Black Belt

The Lean Six Sigma Master Black Belt certification is the highest possible Lean Six Sigma qualification that can be held. The Master Black Belt certification is a preferable and credible qualification that confirms the candidate a Lean Six Sigma expert. It also certifies the delegate as an excellent manager who is committed to Lean Six Sigma principles and functions. Master Black Belt training draws on managerial skills gained from previous belt training courses and develops them to a strategic level. Individuals acquire the skills, ability, and confidence to create business frameworks to facilitate constant change and progress. Candidates will become distinguished team leaders with an extensive understanding of what it takes to guide Lean Six Sigma teams to success. On completion of this Master Black Belt, individuals will be experts in business improvement techniques by analysing the existence of value.
