Course Information

Six Sigma Black Belt Overview

By achieving a Six Sigma Black Belt certification from The Knowledge Academy, candidates will gain the leadership skills to be able to manage and lead quality improvement projects. This course aims to optimise Six Sigma understanding so that Black Belts can effectively apply the Six Sigma methodologies to a business, via a management role. Six Sigma Black Belt covers Yellow, Green and Black Belt content in one combined ten-day course.

 

This highly in demand certification demonstrates to employers an excellent understanding of the Six Sigma methodologies and how to effectively apply them to business improvement projects. Six Sigma Black Belts are well-known for having an astute business improvement acumen and the capability to take charge of dynamic project teams, assigning roles and responsibilities efficiently. Black Belts also possess a comprehensive knowledge of the Define, Measure, Analyse, Improve and Control (DMAIC) model in accordance with Six Sigma principles.

 

These qualities, which are developed through attending a Six Sigma Black Belt course with The Knowledge Academy, are greatly sought-after by prospective employers. Therefore, this qualification could significantly improve career prospects and opportunities.

 

It is important to note that it is required for delegates to pass the Six Sigma Yellow, Green and Black Belt exam to attain this qualification. Also, it is required that delegates bring along a laptop that has up to date Minitab statistical computer software. The trial version of Minitab lasts for a period of 30 days, so it is possible to time the download so that it remains active for the duration of this course. Details of how to install Minitab are included in your pre-course reading document.
