What is Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Training?

If you already have Six Sigma Green Belt - our Lean Six Sigma Black Belt course will take you to the next level, providing you with the in-depth statistical knowledge you required to manage Six Sigma projects across your organisation.

In most organisations, there is recognition that employees who are trained Green Belts are capable of moving up to Black Belt level. It is important that this opportunity is available without having to complete the full Black Belt course.

This programme has been designed to incorporate those elements from the Black Belt training course that are additional to the Green Belt course.

Black Belts are individuals that apply intensive and diversified process improvement techniques to achieve greater efficiency and effectiveness. A Black Belt provides training, facilitation, direction, analysis and advises on product and process improvement.

We are pleased to announce that we have introduced accreditation for our Black Belt course based on the following:

Written Exam

  • Exam 1 completed at the end of week 1 - based on the principles and application of Lean Six Sigma taught on the training course
  • Exam 2 completed at the end of week 2 - based on the analysis from using the statistical software package Minitab as demonstrated and taught on the training course

Work Based Project

  • Delegate must complete a work-based project that follows the Lean Six Sigma DMAICT approach that saves your organisation in excess of £250k or two smaller projects that saves in excess of £100k
  • Evidence should be provided by the delegate that quantifies the benefits in terms of product/service quality, reduced cost and improved service to the customer (internal or external)

For both the exams and project a mark in excess of 50% is required to gain accreditation.

All examinations and projects will be assessed by our Master Black Belt trainer who has a PhD in Lean Six Sigma.

Rather than using case studies, during this two-week programme delegates are invited to bring real project data along with them - this helps to relate the training to real problems, and maximises the value of time spent away from the office.

This Six Sigma Black Belt Conversion training course is the second module in our Six Sigma Black Belt Training.

Delegates wishing to attend this Six Sigma Black Belt course who have not already achieved Green Belt level should first take our Lean Six Sigma Green Belt training course and complete a Six Sigma project before attending.

We also provide private and in-company Six Sigma Black Belt courses. Call +44 (0) 1273 622272 to discuss.
