The Lean Six Sigma Green Belt and Black Belt certification is suitable for anyone looking to generate business improvements in areas such as: customer satisfaction, service delivery, cost control, process performance, & new product introduction. Lean Six Sigma is a process improvement methodology. Project and change management are ineffective without process management.
Your combined Green Belt and Black Belt certification course is delivered by PEEC, an IASSC accredited Lean Six Sigma training provider, meaning you will benefit from accredited instructors and curriculum. You will be introduced to both Lean and Six Sigma methodologies, meaning that activities focused around the speed and quality of business processes are addressed.
Lean Six Sigma is a process improvement methodology. Project and change management are ineffective without process management. You will use the approach to maximise customer value whilst minimising waste. In simple terms this is creating more value for customers with fewer resources.
Your accelerated course meets the ISO 18404 standard applicable to all PEEC programs. Delivered in line with the International Standards for Lean Six Sigma, as described in the ISO 13053-1 and ISO 13053-2 standard, you will attain internationally recognised certifications in Lean Six Sigma Green Belt and Black Belt.
Traditional Lean Six Sigma Black Belt training lasts 20 days. This normally includes a month between each module, meaning that it can take up to four months to complete. This is compared to ten days (Green + Black Belt) at Firebrand. Plus, our course contains case studies and exercises - it is not just theory.
This Lean Six Sigma Green and Black Belt course is designed for all business professionals from a wide variety of manufacturing or service / transactional environments. Ideally, you will be tasked with delivering major performance or efficiency transformation for a business, typically working as a Change Leader within the business.
Other accelerated training providers rely heavily on lecture and independent self-testing and study.
Effective technical instruction must be highly varied and interactive to keep attention levels high, promote camaraderie and teamwork between the students and instructor, and solidify knowledge through hands-on learning.
This information has been provided as a helpful tool for candidates considering training. Courses that include certification come with a certification guarantee.

Benefits of certification determined through studies do not guarantee any particular personal successes.
You'll become an expert in the following Lean Six Sigma modules:
As part of the course you will sit both the Lean Six Sigma Green Belt and Lean Six Sigma Black Belt exams.
These are multiple choice exams, which each require a 70% pass mark. You will walk away with proof that you are competent in process management and improvement.
You will be taught more advanced customer requirement analysis methods, more advanced change and project management methods, as well as more advanced Six Sigma statistical measurement & analysis techniques. You will work on an in-class Case Study designed to simulate projects that typically take up to 6 months to solve at work.
