Green Belt certification prepares professionals to use the DMAIC methodology and tools needed to successfully serve (and in some cases help lead) on a project team as a representative member who may be charged with skillfully completing tasks using Six Sigma tools needed to complete a process improvement.
This course is designed for individuals seeking to understand and improve processes through the use of Lean Six Sigma methodology. Students will learn how to direct Lean Six Sigma projects through individual and team exercises. Participants will apply the concepts learned in class to a business improvement project assigned to them by the instructor. Prerequisite: Students must be Yellow Belt certified or must have completed the department's Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt course before registering. Upon successful completion, students will receive a certificate of training as a Lean Six Sigma Green Belt. (60 hours)
Due to the utilization of MiniTab, the Green Belt course requires participants to have access to a PC.
Please Note: This class may be canceled if the minimum enrollment number is not met.
