Six Sigma Green Belt & Black Belt

- Only 10 Days
Lean Six Sigma Process

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.
