Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Certification (Virtual Live)

Our virtual Lean Six Sigma Black Belt program is designed for team leaders, change agents, and coaches in manufacturing, service, and healthcare organizations. Designed to meet the most current challenges facing organizations today, this program will provide participants with people and technical skills needed to  lead DMAIC projects, provide support to executives and management in project selection and strategic planning,  and coordinate improvement efforts. 

The program includes 15 weeks of  interactive, instructor-led sessions  plus self-paced online training and homework assignments in between sessions and  one on one coaching.  You will learn how to apply major methodologies of  lean six sigma beginning with foundational team leadership and facilitation  skills and then the tools of the DMAIC (Define Measure Analyze Improve Control)  process.  Certification requires the completion of a test and project as a leader in your  own company – to reinforce the learning and achieve real results in your  specific environment. This program results in a Certified Lean Six Sigma Black  Belt designation.  (The course includes all Green Belt training as well.) The program is accredited by the Council for Six Sigma Certification.  Please watch our video below to learn more about virtual training, and scroll down for course details.
