Six Sigma Green Belt

4 Days

This course is targeted toward developing Six Sigma process improvement project leaders. It provides a background on the Six Sigma methodology and covers the tools and techniques necessary for leading successful process  improvement projects. Students will bring a “live” process improvement project and supporting data to class where we will develop a clear project definition, and get a great start on an actual project. Upon completion of the course, an exam and a project, students will qualify for a Six Sigma Green Belt certification. This course can be delivered in four full days or eight half days. Between days, students will have homework that will be reviewed at the beginning of the next session.
