Six Sigma Green Belt Training
Purpose:

To develop the technical skills of the individuals selected to become key Six Sigma Project Team Members and leaders of smaller Six Sigma projects.

Green Belt Training - 10 Course Series

Green Belt courses are intended for those interested in improving current processes.  By applying Six Sigma tools to projects closely related to their current duties, Green Belts create significant, measurable impacts for businesses.

Why is the Training Important:   Developing a culture of continuous improvement using Lean Six Sigma methods requires expertise throughout the organization.  Green Belts should be selected and developed at all levels and from all areas of the organization.  They form the core of Black Belt project teams initially and with experience, begin to lead projects.  
This class will be held one day a week for ten weeks. This 10 module course (1 course per week) has to be attended in it's entirety.

The participant will also need to acquire a license to an approved statistical package that is not covered by the course fee.  If you intend to progress on to Black Belt status, Minitab is recommended.  However, if your goal is just Green Belt Certification at this time, SigmaXL would be sufficient (it is significantly less expensive).

​Why this training is important:

Developing a culture of continuous improvement using Six Sigma methods requires technical expertise throughout the organization. Green Belts should be selected and developed at all levels and from all areas of the organization. They form the core of Black Belt project teams initially and with experience begin to lead projects. 

Many organizations require all managers to become Green Belts to reinforce the strategy and importance of using a rigorous problem solving process and tools.
