Overview

Lean Six Sigma Green 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 and learn the approach, concepts and tools required for business improvement. The Lean Six Sigma Green 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 some experience working in more complex improvement projects.

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.

To consolidate learning, students will undertake a Firebrand exam that covers the principles and methodologies of Lean Six Sigma at the end of the course. Upon successful completion, they will receive a Firebrand Certificate of Achievement. Additionally, an IASSC exam voucher will also be provided during the course, allowing students to schedule the official exam remotely at their leisure at the end of the program.
