Overview

Lean Six Sigma Black Belt

As of January 2023, Firebrand Training now offer IASSC® accredited courses as an ATO of PeopleCert.

Six Sigma is a business management strategy originally developed by Motorola, USA in 1986. Six Sigma seeks to improve the quality of process outputs by identifying and removing the causes of defects (errors) and minimizing variability in manufacturing and business processes.

It uses a set of quality management methods, including statistical methods, and creates a special infrastructure of people within the organization (e.g. "Black Belts" and "Green Belts") who are experts in these methods. Each Lean Six Sigma project carried out within an organisation follows a defined sequence of steps and has quantified financial targets (cost reduction or profit increase).

Train through Firebrand's accelerated methodology and you'll learn at twice the speed in a distraction-free environment.

During this 5-day, IASSC accredited course, you will gain a thorough understanding of all aspects of the Lean Six Sigma Method at an advanced level of proficiency and also achieve a high level of understanding of all aspects of the Lean Six Sigma method and learn the approach, concepts and tools required for business improvement. The Lean Six Sigma Black Belt certification is a Lean Six Sigma tool-kit which can be applied to real-life problems within the industry by professionals with a high-level understanding of the Lean Six Sigma method and provides delegates with the ability to successfully lead complex improvement projects to varify their abilities.

This course has been developed for managers and professionals responsible for implementing Lean Six Sigma and wishing to understand the principles in order to work more effectively. It may also be used to raise awareness of Six Sigma within an organisation or as a member of a process improvement team.

Holders of all Lean Six Sigma - IASSC® Certified Belts are required to be re-certified within 3 years from their original certification.

There are no formal prerequisites for this accelerated course, however it is recommended that you complete (with Firebrand or through previous training) Lean Six Sigma Green Belt before moving on to the Lean Six Sigma Black Belt qualification as this course is the advanced level of the Lean Six Sigma qualifications. It is also advantageous to complete the pre-reading material before attending the course and also have previous project management experience, either directly as a Project Manager or as part of a team.

It is also recommended that delegates have a basic understanding of Microsoft Office; such as Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. Previous exposure to process improvement or Lean Six Sigma philosophies is helpful, but not essential.

Unsure whether you meet the prerequisites? Don’t worry. Your training consultant will discuss your background with you to understand if this course is right for you.

"Having recognised the business improvement benefits of Lean Six Sigma to my organisation, I researched thoroughly for providers for my Lean Six Sigma black belt training. Firebrand come out on top on all levels. During my training, support from the clerical team was excellent; the pace and delivery from my tutor was excellent. You get my drift. Thoroughly recommend Firebrand for Six Sigma training!"
