Course Information

Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Course Overview

The Lean Six Sigma Green Belt is the second in the Lean Six Sigma Belt sequence, which provides delegates with essential and practical knowledge of Six Sigma and its methodology. This course combines Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt and Lean Six Sigma Green Belt training, supplying delegates with an in depth and comprehensive training experience.

Our training instructors are experts in the sphere and are renowned worldwide for their ingrained industry knowledge of Six Sigma. The ability of our trainers to transfer their expertise is unrivalled and thus results in the evolution of delegates who are efficient and confident in applying Green Belt notions.

During this certification, candidates gain the knowledge required to effectively assist with data collection and analysis for Black Belt led projects. In addition to this desired skill, training enables delegates to be a part of Green Belt Six Sigma teams on company-wide quality improvement projects. Six Sigma tools, processes, and the value of these to an organisation are key areas of focus and delegates are taught how to apply the techniques to any quality improvement project. Such tools and processes are significant for enterprises due to the business benefits that they can generate.

This course is delivered in two segments - the first will cover the Yellow Belt certification and exam, and the second will cover the Green Belt certification and exam. The Yellow Belt component will ground delegates in the fundamentals of the Six Sigma methodology whilst the Green Belt section covers its practical application and leading a Six Sigma Improvement team.
