Who should attend this Lean Six Sigma Training?

Lean Six Sigma Green Belt is designed for anyone interested in business performance development.

Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Prerequisites

There are no prerequisites for this Lean Six Sigma Green Belt training course, because the Yellow Belt is covered within this Green Belt. Thus, anyone can attend this course. There will be some pre-course work reading for delegates to complete before the Green Belt course begins. We will send you this pre-course reading, along with a Course Preparation Guide. We recommend you spend some time looking at these materials as they will prepare you effectively for the training course.

Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Course Overview

This Lean Six Sigma Green Belt training course 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.
