Green Belt students will learn to work with the project team for continuous-improvement using Lean Six Sigma methodologies. Students explore key practices, statistical tools, and the DMAIC model to identify business improvement projects. Lean training is integrated into the Green Belt training and typically occurs as part of the improvement phase in DMAIC.
Dates: March 20-23 and April 17-20, 2017 (8 day course)
Time: 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Green Belt (GB) training is a two week class including a combination of Green Belt and Black Belt (BB) candidates. Candidates wishing to train to the Black Belt level are required to complete the Green Belt training before proceeding to Black Belt training. The GB training provides a solid foundation in Six Sigma methodologies along with reference to Lean tools in the Improve phase.
Training is action-oriented, using the model of Plan, Train, Apply and Review throughout the event and project work. Simulation exercises, experiential training, team projects and case studies give students a hands-on learning experience.
Participants are required to bring a laptop to training.
