Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Certification Training Course

Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Certification Training Course

Comprehensive training and exam preparation to achieve Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Certification with the International Association of Six Sigma Certification (IASSC) – the most highly regarded independent global Green Belt Certification.

This course is very comprehensive and doesn't require any pre-requisite training. You will learn the foundation skills and develop up to the Green Belt level as part of this intensive 5-day course. However, this training does move quickly and covers a lot of in-depth information in great detail.

For participants focused on Certification preparation, it is important to know that the IASSC Global Certification is exam based. Which means you can sit the exam and become certified as soon as you have successfully passed the exam which is based on global benchmarks.

This comprehensive training course is available across the U.S., including Atlanta, Austin, Baltimore, Birmingham, Boston, Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Jackson, Los Angeles, Manhattan, Miami, New York, Orlando, Philadelphia, San Antonio and Seattle.

Course Outline

Arrow icon Course Outline - Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Certification Training Course

Foreword:

In this course, you will develop the knowledge to pass the certification exam, and learn techniques that you can use as a Continuous Improvement Practioner. The course first teaches you the theory, after which you will work through a series of case studies to practice the application of the techniques.

This course is designed to take you from little to no experience, right through to Green Belt certification standard knowledge; ready for sign-off by the IASSC after you pass your certification exam.

Be careful when comparing the PD Training course to other courses.  Often companies will require you to attend the Yellow Belt course first, then the Green Belt, while this comprehensive course builds your knowledge and skills in one 5-day course.

This is an exam-based certification administered by the IASSC, which means that you can receive the training and then get certified as soon as you are ready. The exam you pass means that you are marked against a global benchmark - and will have a globally recognized credential.

Many other LSS Green Belt Certifications require you to complete a project in the workplace that gets signed off by your trainer, which is very subjective, and means that you can't get 'certified' until your project at work is complete. This is not required with the PD Training course.

Join this Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Certification, learn from the best, and acheive your certification with a free practice exam and free IASSC exam voucher.
