About the Certified Six Sigma Green Belt (CSSGB) - Dowload PDF

Developed with service industry businesses in mind but applicable across all disciplines, this course enhances candidates’ problem-solving abilities and engages them in Lean Six Sigma’s industry-tested system for process variation reduction. Through finance, government and health care examples, each session teaches the candidate how to apply the DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control) methodology within their specific project environment, setting a goal of financial benefit and organizational improvement. Through the DMAIC model, candidates receive a comprehensive framework for project management, which places strategic emphasis on team building and root cause analysis. Additionally, candidates will learn how to use process mapping, perform data collection, and apply basic statistics and graphical analysis.

The blended learning program combines classroom-based instruction, online education and project review sessions, all from a Master Black Belt.

Certification Requirements:

Candidates earn certification by passing an exam and undertaking and documenting an individual process improvement project at the candidate’s place of work or a qualified host company/organization (candidate must secure arrangements).  Successful projects require access to personnel, appropriate data and associated departments where the project is to be performed. A final report will be submitted for instructor approval, to outline performance goals and fully describe the steps taken toward improvement. Project outcomes will be documented – such as process improvement and financial impact – through the identification of before-and-after performance metrics.

The program is accredited by the Council for Six Sigma Certification, the official industry standard for Six Sigma accreditation.

Prerequisite: None

Who Should Attend: 

This Six Sigma Green Belt training course is appropriate for all levels and disciplines within the organization.  It is especially relevant for technical employees in a manufacturing environment, but is also effective for those in transactional and service capacities, such as material control, IT, finance, etc.
