Six Sigma Yellow Belt Training

The Six Sigma Yellow Belt certification is a two-day program that provides an overview of the techniques of Six Sigma, its metrics, and basic improvement methodologies. Six Sigma Yellow Belt training provides an introduction to process management and the basic tools of Six Sigma, giving employees a stronger understanding of processes, enabling each individual to provide meaningful assistance in achieving the organization’s overall objectives.  Trained Yellow Belts are capable of participating as a core team member or subject matter expert (SME) on Six Sigma projects.

Since we are training multiple groups, the recommendation is that two groups receive Day 1 of the training back to back and then Day 2 of the training at a later date.  This gives groups enough time to implement a project assigned on Day 1 and enhances the training experience.  However, this is at the discretion of Telephonics.

  • The effectiveness of employees in their support role within a Six Sigma program

  • Day-to-day skills that can help improve workplace activities (increasing potential to cut cycle times, improve quality, and reduce waste)
  • Yellow Belts understand the fundamentals of Six Sigma, are able to gather data, can participate in problem-solving exercises and add their personal experiences to the exploration process. Not only do Yellow Belts gain the skills necessary to identify, monitor and control profit-eating practices in their own processes, they are also prepared to feed that information to Black Belts and Green Belts working on larger system issues. Certified Yellow Belts improve their ability to make a positive contribution in the workplace and add a valuable credential to their list of professional achievements.
