Six Sigma Green Belt/Black Belt Training

Click Here to see the schedule.


The Six Sigma Green Belt/Black Belt Training course is an 8 day training program in four 2-day modules; one module for each of the Six Sigma “road map” steps: Define -  Measure – Analyze – Improve - Control. It is designed to provide both  instruction and hands on training (“tacit” learning) as attendees are required to complete a project during the program.  This Six Sigma Green Belt/Black Belt Training program is conducted “in house” and at least one week is allowed between modules for attendees to apply the MAIC skills acquired to their projects as the course progresses.  Class exercises are also geared toward these projects. The 8 days of Six Sigma Green Belt/Black Belt Training can be applied toward the GBMP 16 day Six Sigma Black Belt training course so that Black Belt status can be achieved with an additional 8 days of training and completion of a Black Belt project!

After taking the Six Sigma Green Belt/Black Belt Training class attendees should be able to:

•    Understand Six Sigma variation reduction methodology.
•    Begin to apply the MAIC  “road map” and spread the methodology to everyday work problems.
•    Assist Black Belts in Six Sigma teams and team projects .
•    Successfully complete “in the trenches” variation reduction projects of their own.
•    Become a mentor to others in applying statistical analysis to continuous improvement programs in
      their work environment.

Who should attend ?

This Six Sigma Green Belt/Black Belt Training 8 day course is appropriate for all levels and disciplines within the organization.  It is especially relevant for technical employees in  manufacturing environment but can also be affective for those in transactional and service capacities such as Material Control, IT, Finance, etc.
