Certified Lean Six Sigma Green Belt
Transactional – Blended
The course consists of 54 hours of online education, classroom-based instruction and learning remotely through webinars, all from a Master Black Belt.
The program is accredited by the Council for Six Sigma Certification, the official industry standard for Six Sigma accreditation.
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.
