Lean Six Sigma Process

Aimed at the advanced practitioner, your accelerated Lean Six Sigma Black Belt certification will teach you to generate business improvements in areas such as: customer satisfaction, service delivery, cost control, process performance, & new product introduction.

This Lean Six Sigma Black Belt certification is delivered by PEEC, an IASSC accredited Lean Six Sigma training provider, meaning you will benefit from accredited instructors and curriculum. During the 5 day course 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.

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 an internationally recognised certification as a Lean Six Sigma Black Belt.

Traditional Lean Six Sigma Black Belt training lasts 10 days. This normally includes a month between each module, meaning that it can take up to two months to complete. This is compared to five days at Firebrand. Plus, our course contains case studies and exercises - it is not just theory.
