Lean Six Sigma
Black Belt Certification
image description

Black Belt certification is for team leaders who manage big improvement initiatives. At the Black Belt level, you will have a thorough understanding of all aspects of Lean Six Sigma.

Lean Six Sigma is a disciplined problem solving and process improvement approach that focuses on eliminating waste, reducing variability, and improving customer satisfaction. The benefits of Lean Six Sigma ultimately drive right to the bottom line!

This course will equip you to lead complex projects that have significant customer service and financial implications, blending the tools of Lean, along with the precision of DMAIC problem solving methodology and advanced statistical toolsets.

Using our Blended Learning Design, Black Belt students utilize visually eye-catching online modules to gain a deeper understanding of Lean and DMAIC methodologies. Classroom and/or Virtual Classroom sessions allow instructors to build upon this knowledge and focus the learning for immediate action.

Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Certification VIRTUAL CLASSROOM DESCRIPTION

This self-paced course covers Lean Six Sigma methodologies at the Green Belt level and at the Black Belt level. It is designed for students who know that they want to proceed all the way through the Black Belt level without having to enroll in one course for the prerequisite level (Green Belt) and then a second course for the Black Belt level.

This course requires 22-26 hours to complete the self-paced e-Learning in Part 1 of the course. Because the course is self-paced, a student can take individual modules over a series of a few days or many days, at his or her preference, based upon a timeline that may be established by the customer organization.

This course requires 18-22 hours for Part 2 of the course. A student can take individual modules within a few days or can spread them out over many days, at his or her preference.
