Certified Lean Sigma Black Belt Training with Minitab

15 days , 120 instructional hours
8.4 Continuing Education Units (CEUs)

Lean Sigma black belts are the backbone of lean six sigma implementation.  They are the leaders of Lean Sigma projects.  This program teaches all of the necessary skills for  successful leadership of a lean Sigma project.  Lean Sigma Black Belts generate an average of more than 200 thousand dollars per project of savings and new net revenue. Each Black Belt can lead  3-5 projects a year.

 Participants in this course are  encouraged to bring a real project from their company to the class (we can help with project selection).  The instructors will guide participants through successful project completion during the course.  This allows real  gains to be realized during the course (class projects are usually vastly greater in value than the cost of the course). A certificate will be awarded upon completion of the course and final exam.

Here you can read guidelines for a successful Black Belt Project in addition to consulting the instructor prior to the start of your class.
