Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Class Description

The Lean Six Sigma (LSS) Green Belt certification is considered a mark of quality excellence in many industries. It helps you advance your career and boosts your organization’s bottom line through your mastery of quality skills.  Becoming certified as a LSS Green Belt confirms your commitment to quality and the positive impact it will have on your organization.

The objective of this class is to prepare for the Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Exam. The course is instructor led and it uses lectures, in class exercises and online practice exams at the end of each module. The course is based on the Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Body of Knowledge published by the American Society for Quality (ASQ).  The class covers the eligibility and application process in detail and all of the topics covered in the Lean Six Sigma Green Belt exam. The course is 35 hours of classroom training and 5 hours of online exam assignments. 98% of those that took our class passed the Lean Six Sigma Green Belt exam in their first attempt.

Course Methodology

   A highly engaging and interactive course that ensures better internalization of Six Sigma concepts and principles.

    Students work through the course rather than just listening for higher retention of concepts and theory.

    Group exercises demonstrate and bring to life the concepts being taught.

   Practical implementation issues are discussed with relevant Lean Six Sigma tools and techniques. 

   A central case-study integrates all the Lean Six Sigma concepts as the participants work through an entire Lean Six Sigma project.

    Students learn to carry out analysis with the help of globally used Minitab software for which online training is provided free to classroom participants.
