Six Sigma Green Belt Certification

In collaboration with the IISE (Institute of Industrial & Systems Engineers)


Green Belts are Six Sigma practitioners that do process and product improvement project work. The focus of Six Sigma is to reduce and control variation and waste in processes based on the importance to the customer and the business needs.

This Green Belt training is a three-day course that will provide an in-depth understanding of Six Sigma and show how to eliminate defects through fundamental process knowledge. You’ll be able to quantify the critical quality issues in a company and then use six sigma tools to develop solutions. On the last day of the course, participants will take the IISE Green Belt Exam and those who pass will receive a Green Belt Certificate*.

Space is available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
