Bywater offers training options at Green Belt level to acquire new skills with or without attaining certification.
Our 5-day Lean Six Sigma Green Belt training course provides full training with expert tutors. You will receive a certificate after the course demonstrating your new level of understanding and the fact that the course is approved by the Royal Statistical Society.
If you wish to achieve individual certification under the Royal Statistical Society’s 18404 Sector Scheme, then this 8-day Six Sigma Green Belt Development programme is right for you. The programme begins with our standard Green Belt training, before taking an additional 3 days to focus on the practical application of your Green Belt competencies, along with Assessment Centre practice and individual coaching to support an RSS 18404 application.
Bywater became a Royal Statistical Society (RSS) Approved Training Organisation in 2021. The RSS has approved all of our Six Sigma training courses, confirming that our training covers the competency requirements as defined in the ISO 18404 standard, and as interpreted in the RSS 18404 Sector Scheme, which sets out the requirements for certification against ISO 18404.
To meet RSS requirements, all our tutors have to be approved by the RSS. That means they must demonstrate experience in their subjects, in managing courses, and in facilitating skills. Our highly capable Six Sigma tutors include Master Black Belts who participated in the development of ISO 18404.
No. Many of our delegates successfully gain the insights and practical expertise they need in their roles from our Green Belt training course, without attempting to achieve certification. If you attend the Green Belt training course you will receive a certificate stating your new skill level, which you can share around your organisation and on LinkedIn, for example.
Some delegates do wish to achieve certification from the RSS through its Sector Scheme and enjoy additional benefits. For example, those who become certified are eligible to join the RSS register, which is used by organisations to find Lean and Six Sigma professionals. This RSS certification does require applicants to attend training and undertake an assessment to provide substantial evidence of their practical experience at Green Belt level.
Assessment by the Royal Statistical Society (RSS) is typically conducted online. You will be required to submit a portfolio of evidence of practice and competency two weeks before your assessment takes place. Two RSS appointed assessors will then review the evidence and interview you. You will also need to undergo a test and make a presentation.
