Overview

Lean Six Sigma Green Belt 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 10-day, IASSC® accredited course - you will gain a thorough and expert understanding of all aspects of the Lean Six Sigma method and learn the approach, concepts and tools required for business improvement. Both the Lean Six Sigma Green Belt certification (intermediate) and Lean Six Sigma Black belt (advanced) are part of your 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 experience working in more complex improvement projects.

This combination course has been developed 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.

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

Prerequisites

Important note: Please download the Minitab software prior to the start of your course. It’s not necessary to purchase the software; the free 14-day trial is enough for the purposes of this course.

Although not an official pre-requisite for the course, due to the high-quality content that is provided with this certification, it is highly recommended that for those without any experience or prior knowledge of Lean Six Sigma, that you consider completing Lean Six Sigma IASSC® Yellow Belt prior to moving onto the Green belt.

There are no formal prerequisites for this accelerated course, however, it is recommended that you complete (as part of this course or through previous training) Lean Six Sigma Green Belt before moving on to the Lean Six Sigma Black Belt qualification. 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.
