Six Sigma Green Belt Training Overview

Course Outcomes

Graduates will understand the principles and techniques of data-driven decision-making and can use this process information to reduce variation and improve performance.

Completion of this unique, application-centric certification process will also enable participants to use and learn the “DMAIC” methodology (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control) to address specific operational challenges within their organizations. In this way, participants can improve and control constraining or unreliable processes to reduce costs, save time, increase customer satisfaction, and grow sales.

Our schedule enables participants to apply as they learn, meeting in groups with other Green Belt candidates to share and learn from each other.

Between classroom sessions, participants are entitled to 2 coaching sessions with a DVIRC Master Black Belt. These coaching sessions are designed to provide one-on-one time for discussing project progress, understanding Six Sigma process-improvement principles and associated techniques, and receive guidance on the steps necessary for project completion.
