Six Sigma Green Belt Certification Training Overview
This Six Sigma Green Belt training course takes attendees from white to green belt, covering the entire DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, and Control) methodology incorporating Minitab Statistical Software. Globally recognized certification for Lean Six Sigma Green Belt is achieved by applying the DMAIC roadmap to improving an organization's process. Remote coaching by the Master Black Belt instructor is included through the initial project completion and certification (up to 3 hours of support).
Note: This Green Belt course is conducted over two 4-day sessions (8 full training days in all) of training with a 3-4 week break between sessions.
Location and Pricing
Accelebrate offers instructor-led enterprise training for groups of 3 or more online or at your site. Most Accelebrate classes can be flexibly scheduled for your group, including delivery in half-day segments across a week or set of weeks. To receive a customized proposal and price quote for private corporate training on-site or online, please contact us.
In addition, some courses are available as live, instructor-led training from one of our partners.
- Understand the DMAIC roadmap
- Define the problem, the process associated with the problem, metrics for measuring success, and the business value of the project
- Define a support structure and its roles and responsibilities
- Establish an existing process flow
- Apply the cause and effects matrix
- Identify high-risk relationships to help mitigate the risk of failure
- Understand how the properties of the normal distribution are linked to the concept of variability
- Analyze data with Minitab software
- Use graphical and analytical techniques to conduct basic data analysis
- Understand the general types of variability
- Interpret a standard Control Chart
- Construct and complete a Measurement Systems Analysis (MSA) for various measurement situations
- Understand the natural variation of the process
No experience is presumed, however, the ability to apply DMAIC roadmap on a process improvement project in the attendee's work environment is required for certification.
