Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Certification Course

About the Course

Our Six Sigma Green Belt course is designed teach participants how to analyse and solve quality related problems and actively work within Six Sigma teams. Upon completion of this course participants will be able to define a Six Sigma project and process baseline, analyse data and apply DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, and Control) and various six sigma tools in process and quality improvement.

Who should do this course?

This Green Belt course is suitable for participants who want to grow with Six Sigma. Typically, a Green Belt will operate as a support player within a Six Sigma team and apply the principles and processes of Six Sigma in daily work situations.

Prerequisites

There are no pre-requisites for this course. However, participants should have a general understanding of personal computers and have basic numeracy skills.
