Being skilled in leading small-scale Six Sigma improvement projects, a Lean Six Sigma Green Belt uses proven techniques for solving quality problems and improving processes.
Our five-day Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Certificate course provides participants from various backgrounds the tools needed for solving quality problems, improving processes, and creating a more customer-focused environment in their companies. A Green Belt certification provides professionals the tools needed for analytical problem-solving, critical thinking, and process-improvement skill development. On day five, participants will sit for their Lean Six Sigma Green Belt certification exam. Yellow Belt concepts will be covered, and no prior Six Sigma training is required.
What is Lean Six Sigma?
Six Sigma is an enterprise-wide, project-driven quality improvement approach that emphasizes a systematic method to problem solving and decision-making based on data. Six Sigma results in increased customer satisfaction, improved quality and reduced costs.
Lean is a method that concentrates on reducing waste by improving work flow and eliminating mistakes.
Together, these two methodologies provide a powerful means for companies to please their customers and improve bottom line results. Lean Six Sigma has been successfully applied in manufacturing firms, certainly, but these techniques have also allowed hospitals, educational institutions, banks, retail operations, insurance companies and other service-related industries to reduce waste, improve customer service and reduce costs. In a broad sense, if an organization has customers and a process, it can benefit from implementing Six Sigma.
Participants should have at least a two-year degree and be able to solve basic algebraic equations; no prior Six Sigma training is required. In addition, experience with using formulas and creating graphs in Microsoft Excel is extremely helpful. A laptop computer, loaded with Excel, should be brought to each class.
Completion of a Lean Six Sigma Green Belt project is a requirement of the class.
Upon successful completion of the course, each participant will be certified as a Lean Six Sigma Green Belt and will receive a University of North Florida Certificate of Completion that awards 4.0 Continuing Education Units (CEUs).
