Lean Six Sigma Yellow, Green and Black Belt certifications

From entry level Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt to Master Black Belt, QA have all you need to prepare you for your Lean Six Sigma certification journey.

Certification details

LEAN SIX SIGMA YELLOW BELT

Yellow Belts are expected to help identify potential improvement opportunities in their organisation and provide Subject Matter Expertise to support Green and Black Belts.  There is no exam at the end of the LSSYB. Yellow Belt certificate is issued upon completion of the training.

LEAN SIX SIGMA GREEN BELT - Practitioners

The Green Belt Practitioner course includes a refresher of the topics covered in the Yellow Belt certification. As such, it is not mandated that delegates attend the Yellow Belt class as pre-requisite. While the Yellow Belt training is intended to provide an overview of the methodology sufficient to participate as Project Contributors, Green Belts are required to lead at least one project, as part of the certification requirements.

The main focus of the five day Practitioner course is on the application of Lean Six Sigma DMAIC methods to real life improvement projects within the delegate’s own organisation.

Lean Programme 

Delegates who do not want to take the Lean Six Sigma route (above) can select to take the Lean Programme, consisting of the following 3 courses over a total of 5 days.

Once taken the initial 5 days of training, delegates progress to the QA Lean Six Sigma Analyst. This course includes the examination, which, following the achievement of successfully leading an improvement project and submitting the relevant project documentation for accreditation, works towards the achievement of full Green Belt certification.

Delegates must also complete a Lean Six Sigma project within their organisation to become certified. The project needs to adequately test their knowledge and application of the Lean Six Sigma methodology and relevant tools. Delegates must lead the project and not just be a team member. Green Belt projects should represent relatively “simple’ improvement challenges whilst Black Belt projects should be more demanding; please discuss your proposed project with your course tutor.   Delegates can either provide documentation for independent assessment (for which there is an additional charge of £300/project), or they can complete an affidavit for the project. The affidavit requires the company to audit the claimed benefits; with a senior manager/executive signature to verify that this has been done.

When a delegate has completed all of the above they will receive a certificate from QA confirming that they are now a Certified Lean Six Sigma Green or Black Belt, as appropriate. A Master Black Belt will sign the certificate.

LEAN SIX SIGMA BLACK BELT

Once obtained the Green Belt certificate, delegates can then take the Lean Six Sigma Black Belt certification, comprising either two five day courses or the 10-day Practitioner boot camp. For Master Black Belt certification delegates can take, in addition, the 5-day Master Black Belt course.
