This 5-day RSS certified Six Sigma Green Belt to Black Belt training course is designed for delegates who have previously undertaken our Lean Six Sigma Green Belt training course, RSS 18404 Six Sigma Green Belt Development Programme or equivalent and are now seeking to become a certified Six Sigma Black Belt.

Six Sigma Black Belts are recognised to have a more in-depth understanding of Six Sigma than Six Sigma Green Belts and undertake additional roles during Six Sigma projects including managing improvement projects, organising multi-disciplinary teams, training others on the DMAIC methodology and participating in gate reviews.

This 5-day course introduces delegates to the role and competency requirements for Six Sigma Black Belts, as detailed in ISO 18404, the international standard for lean and six sigma. Through engaging modules and exercises delegates will learn key approaches and tools for instance advanced lean and undertake activities to analyse big data sets using statistical software and six sigma tools. The final day of the course focuses on topics based on the group’s requirements including Process Design, Survey Design, Taguchi Methods and Box-Behnken Designs.

On successful completion, delegates will be able to confidently lead improvement projects and facilitate Green Belt projects using the DMAIC methodology at Black Belt level.
