Program Description

Lean Six Sigma enables you to create high-efficiency, profitable organizations through product and process excellence. Lean Six Sigma methodologies will boost the profitability and stability of companies in any industry - health care, manufacturing, timber, agriculture, software/IT and more. Our online Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Certificate program offers you a flexible way to learn from Lean Six Sigma process experts and advance quickly in your own career.

The Lean Six Sigma approach relies on a collective team effort to eliminate wasted time and resources, reduce variation, and increase customer satisfaction. By understanding Lean Six Sigma tools, you'll be able to identify defects, delays, and deviations in your products and processes, ultimately improving your efficiency. This program features an integrated curriculum that incorporates lean tools within the DMAIC (Design, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control) framework, an interactive approach emphasizing examples, case studies, team exercises, a dynamic software learning tool and a unique individualized coaching component. You will learn from Lean Six Sigma Black Belt instructors with extensive Lean Six Sigma experience and work with classmates to develop hands-on problem-solving techniques.

Our Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Certificate is designed around five courses exploring the principles, tools and methodologies of Lean Six Sigma. You will pick individual real-world projects and receive personalized guidance to effectively implement Lean Six Sigma concepts.

You can register for any of the five courses individually, or you can register for the complete certificate at once.

  • Grow customer loyalty by targeting your customer needs so you can improve the things that matter most to your customers
