Lean Six Sigma Green to Black Belt  

This Lean Six Sigma Green Belt to Black Belt class assumes that all participants have recently completed LSS GB training and that no remedial training is required. As such,essentially all material covered will be additional tools and methods that enhance Lean Six Sigma understanding and data collection and analysis techniques.

Who Should Attend

Participants who have completed the Center for Quality Lean Six Sigma Green Belt and desire to go to Black Belt status


Completed the Center for Quality Lean Six Sigma Green Belt.


Personal laptop computer with Excel TM software is very highly recommended. Minitab TM software is desirable, but not necessary. For successful completion of the course a project is required.


80 Hours – 10-day course (two sessions, non-concurrent weeks)
