Course Description


This is a three-course certificate series. Register for the series and save $90 off the cost of registering for each course individually.

Six Sigma professionals are in strong demand by organizations around the world. On the front-lines of Six Sigma efforts are Green Belts. This Green Belt training teaches participants problem-solving skills, using the DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control) model. After completing this challenging course, Six Sigma Green Belts serve their organizations as a trained specialist able to work on Six Sigma projects that benefit the organization. Although not required, participants are strongly encouraged to have a project during the course.

The instructors and mentors work closely with the class to not only teach the material, but to guide candidates as they work projects.

Introduction to Six Sigma Green Belt (Part 1, 1 month course)

Six Sigma methods have been successfully deployed in many industries and organizations. This challenging course teaches critical skills required for Six Sigma practitioners. This first course in the Certificate program explains the basic terms and proven Six Sigma problem-solving methods, team building tools, and descriptive statistics that are the basis for the statistical tools that contribute to the success of improvement projects and to the overall success of your organization. Topics covered include Lean Principles, Failure Mode Effects Analysis, Team Tools, Project Charters, and Basic Statistical Tools. The instructor uses the “flipped” classroom technique and expects participants to go beyond the classroom and use the internet and other resources to learn the material.

Intermediate Six Sigma Green Belt (Part 2, 1 month course) 

To be successful, organizations must manage by fact. As such, organizations depend on the measurement and analysis of performance to make key decisions that affect the organization. This Intermediate Six Sigma Green Belt course builds on the ideas and skills learned in the Introduction to Six Sigma Green Belt course that organizations use, specifically their Six Sigma teams, to improve. In this second course in the Certificate program, participants will learn process analysis, data collection and analysis, probability and valid statistical conclusions, and hypothesis testing. Many participants find this course to be the most challenging of the Certificate courses.

Advanced Six Sigma Green Belt

The final course in the Six Sigma Green Belt program is the Advanced Six Sigma Greenbelt course which teaches participants to improve and control processes. Topics included in this course include hypothesis testing, design of experiments, and statistical process control. Participants will have to apply the concepts learned in the Introduction and Intermediate Six Sigma Green Belt courses. The instructor will share many handouts, spreadsheets, and web links that have tools participants will use while completing Six Sigma projects.
