Six Sigma Green Belt/Black Belt Training

Click Here to see the schedule.


The Six Sigma Green Belt course is an 8 day training program.  Sessions meet for one full day every two weeks. A course module is dedicated to each of the Six Sigma "road map" steps: Define -  Measure – Analyze – Improve - Control. Unlike most Six Sigma training, this course is designed to provide both instruction and hands-on-application (“tacit” learning), as attendees are required to complete a project during the program.  This Six Sigma Green Belt program is conducted with at least one week between modules to allow time for attendees to apply their new MAIC skills to their projects as the course progresses. Class exercises are also geared toward completion of these projects.

The 8 days of Six Sigma Green Belt can be applied toward the 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 class attendees should be able to:

  • Define a project and determine the cost of poor quality.
  • 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 variation reduction projects of their own.
  • Become a mentor to others in applying statistical analysis to continuous improvement programs in their work environment.

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