Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Certification Training - Signature Series

Comprehensive training and exam preparation to achieve the 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. In addition to the scheduled course time (40 hours) you will need to set aside 18 hours for self-directed learning to ensure you stay up to date with absorbing and understanding the concepts discussed in the course. Total course duration is up to 58 hours.

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.

Our Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Training courses are run by Lean Six Sigma experts. Attend a course today throughout Australia including, Brisbane, Sydney, Parramatta, Melbourne, Canberra, Adelaide and Perth.

Client Site Training - We’ll focus on what matters most to you and tailor to your context

Face-to-Face, Live Online, or Hybrid Class Tailored to Your Needs

When you want a tailored learning experience targeting exactly what you want without bringing everyone physically together, the best choice is a Live Online Class run by PDT.

We tailor the content and activities to be specific to your current needs and the needs of the people and run the course in our usual activity-based workshop style training, however, the participants can all be offsite, or some can be in the room with others offsite.

Unless you have a preferred tools we use 'Zoom for Education' that includes enhanced collaboration features such as One-click content sharing, real-time co-annotation (people can work together in activity files), and digital whiteboarding, we also include things like live polls and group chats so you virtually have the same collaborative learning experience of attending a course in a room with other people.

live online & hybrid

We have delivered these 100's (if not 1000's) of times, and get great outcomes. We achieve great outcomes because we keep our learner centric approach - just because it’s delivered through a screen to some or all participants doesn’t mean it needs to be less tailored or less personalised.

You still have an expert trainer who talks to you prior to the session and tailors the delivery to use your terminology, ensure activities are relevant and directly applicable and ensures an engaging learning experience that provide people with skills and techniques they can apply the very next day.

A hybrid class is with some people connecting online, and some people physically together in the same room.
