Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Certification Training Upgrade from Yellow Belt Reviews:

I wanted to reach out and thank you for the training. It’s been a while since I had such a concentration of statistics instruction but you made it easy to understand and relevant to our given situations. Day 3 was particularly helpful to me with the discussions around actual process improvements and measurements, which you illuminated further by sharing your own real-life case study.

Prior to accepting your enrolment, PD Training will provide you with an IASSC Practice Test to confirm your existing knowledge, and if accepted, we will provide you with the IASSC authorised Green Belt training materials a week before the course runs, so you can review the materials beforehand and pick up the training without missing a beat.

This upgrade course includes days 4 and 5 from the complete 5-day Green Belt course. It picks up from where the Yellow Belt training left off.

By moving up from the Yellow Belt to Green Belt, you will learn and develop substantial skills in the Analyse and Improve phases of DMAIC.

Brief review of Yellow Belt content

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.
