Certified Lean Six Sigma Green Belt

Certified Lean Six Sigma Green Belt

Why Attend

Six Sigma is an industry-standard methodology for process improvement and business transformation. Our Green Belt course is aligned with ASQ and IASSC's (known for their comprehensive and robust content) international Body of Knowledge (BOK). This unique Green Belt Six Sigma course will help you improve the quality of your organization's operations by adopting a data-driven approach. It will also give you the skills to work on projects that benefit all processes and businesses. Participants will learn the different phases of Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, and Control (DMAIC) and how to craft a project charter. Additionally, they will learn about quality tools and statistics to support them while formulating problem statements and translating them into a measurable format. Participants will also be provided with the means to assess their organization's readiness to launch Six Sigma projects. Join us to become a certified Six Sigma practitioner like the thousands of Six Sigma professionals we have successfully trained over the last 20 years.

Course Methodology

Through interactive lectures and group and individual presentations, the course will allow participants to practice the skills they have acquired through exercises and case studies. Additionally, videos will be shown on companies that implemented the Six Sigma methodology. Throughout the course, a case study will show how Six Sigma can be applied within an organization. 

Course Objectives

By the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Explain Six Sigma and its importance to drive and sustain business improvement
  • Examine the define stage components and generate the project charter
  • Discuss the measure, data sampling, and collection stage using various tools in Minitab
  • Explore the analysis stage using various graphical analysis charts and tests 
  • Evaluate the improve and control stages using various Six Sigma tools
  • Distinguish between Six Sigma methodology (variation removal) and Lean thinking (waste removal
Target Audience

Managers, supervisors, and professionals who wish to fully utilize the Six Sigma approach in their organizations or gain professional certification or learn how Six Sigma relates to work and business improvement.

Target Competencies
  • Deploying Six Sigma
  • Problem-solving
  • Critical thinking
  • Using applied statistics
  • Lean principles

Course pre-requisites:

• Knowledge of basic and intermediate statistics: It is suggested that participants take some time to review basic statistics. Books or e-learning modules could be used to refresh participants’ knowledge before attending the course.

• Familiarity with the seven essential problem-solving tools

• At least five years of practical experience in business processes 

• Participants will benefit more if they come prepared with a business improvement idea that may positively impact their organization (e.g., cost savings of $10,000 to $50,000). The knowledge and skills gained in this course will be applied to transform their ideas into projects. However, this is an exam-based certification, and no project submission is required. 

Participants must bring their laptops pre-installed with Minitab statistical software. Computers must have administrator privileges to allow participants to install Minitab software and access a USB.

Participants attending this course will receive 40+ quality tool templates that will be useful during their project’s deployment.

MPC Certifications
Meirc Professional Certificate (MPC)

MPC certified courses by Meirc Training & Consulting are designed for those willing to challenge themselves and go the extra distance. Participants who fully attend an MPC course and successfully complete the test on the last day, will receive a Meirc Professional Certificate (MPC), in addition to the one they receive for full attendance. MPC certificates are regionally recognized and can be quite valuable when applying for more senior roles within the organization or outside.
