Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Training and Certification

Without proper training, the benefits of a Black Belt are limited. You need a Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Training and Certification. The most effective way to master Lean Six Sigma is to complete an LSS Black Belt Training and get certified. A Black Belt Training is a structured approach to teaching the principles of Lean Six Sigma and equipping you with the tools needed to master the method.

Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Courses Overview

Lean Six Sigma is a quality management concept for continuous improvement that combines the Lean Manufacturing Concepts from the renowned Toyota Production System and the data driven analysis of Six Sigma. Lean Six Sigma combines the speed and agility of Lean with the predictability of Six Sigma to create solutions for better business practices and dramatic bottom line results.

The curriculum is based upon the DMAIC roadmap (Define Phase, Measure Phase, Analyze Phase, Improve Phase, & Control Phase), which is the foundation for Six Sigma. The Lean tools and concepts are integrated into the DMAIC framework to create a continuous improvement tool set that can be used to manage any process problem.

Prerequisites and Requirements

No pre-requisite is required to take this course.

Training Course Options for Black Belt

The Black Belt Course offers two different tracks: the Six Sigma Track and the Lean Six Sigma Track.

Six Sigma Black Belt (SSBB) Track: for those who have already taken a separate course on Lean and only want to focus on Six Sigma tools and methodology.

Lean Six Sigma Black Belt (LSSBB) Track: for those who want to learn both Lean and Six Sigma tools and methodology.

Both tracks offer the same level of training and certification, but the Lean Six Sigma Track provides a more well-rounded education in both Lean and Six Sigma. Additionally, the course tracks cover the ASQ Body of Knowledge for Black Belt.

Both the Six Sigma and Lean Six Sigma Tracks require participants to complete projects for certification. This project gives students the opportunity to apply what they have learned in class to a real-world problem. 

Upon completion of the project and passing the certification exam, participants will receive their corresponding Black Belt Certification.
