Six Sigma Black Belt and Green Belt Training

Six Sigma Black Belt Certification

Six Sigma Black Belt Training Outline | ceu Credits: 7

Training employees as Six Sigma Black Belts will provide the valuable skills needed to tackle the toughest problems confronting your organization.  By coupling the proven Define, Measure, Analyze, DMAIC Process MapImprove, and Control (DMAIC) problem-solving methodology with robust statistical tools, Six Sigma offers a carefully defined roadmap for achieving business process improvements.  Six Sigma Black Belt trainees obtain a solid understanding of the tools and methods associated with the Six Sigma approach.

The pace of the classroom instruction is set to allow trainees to absorb and quickly deploy Six Sigma skills. As each classroom session is presented, trainees can immediately apply the newly acquired skill set to their certification project. This approach dramatically improves the retention of key Six Sigma principles, reinforces contextual learning and builds trainee confidence. On-site mentoring by the Six Sigma instructor allows for any fine-tuning with the trainee and his/her sponsor in their own work environment.

Our years of Six Sigma training experience have taught us that Black Belts who do not receive the support and resources needed to complete projects are simply unable to create genuine bottom-line impact.  Because positive impact is our primary goal, the MMTC has made the participation of a project sponsor (usually the candidate’s manager or other company leader) a requirement for Black Belt certification.  A sponsor is expected to attend the first training session with the Black Belt candidate, and to be involved in the project review sessions occurring throughout the certification process (see diagram below).  This demonstration of commitment ensures that the Black Belt’s efforts are aligned with your organizational objectives and that the Black Belt is supported throughout their certification experience.

Six Sigma Green Belt Training Outline | ceu Credits: 3.5

Almost every process within an organization has at least some problems.  As a leader, trying to address every problem is impossible.  Providing employees with Six Sigma Green Belt training equips them with a logical and objective way to identify, measure, and eliminate those problems. Suddenly, employees don’t have to just cope with the problems – they begin to recognize and implement solutions to them.

A down-to-earth blend of DMAIC project management methods and practical data analysis techniques provide employees, at any level of the organization, with new ways to contribute to the bottom line.  From executive leaders to front-line employees, Six Sigma Green Belt training enhances the way employees approach their day-to-day work.  And when Six Sigma Black and Green Belts are strategically positioned to support each other in the workplace, the improvement potential expands.

MiniTab® Training Workshop

One day with no pre-requisite

MiniTab® is a highly popular analytical software tool for the quality sciences including problem solving, statistical process control and Six Sigma. The primary objective of this workshop is to make the participant more familiar with how to use the software as opposed to how to interpret results. This one-day overview stresses a multitude of areas that are commonly needed in a variety of situations including data file manipulation, creating data files, evaluating data, creating graphs and developing charts. Examples are presented along with class exercises. Offered as both open enrollment class or on-site group engagement.

Introduction to Design of Experiments (DOE)

Two days with no pre-requisite

DOE is a problem-solving tool/method that can solve complex problems in a short amount of time. The course focuses on the fundamentals of experimental design for variables (continuous) type data. Included are statistical tests for analyzing one, two and three or more treatments as well as multi-factor design.

An introduction to MiniTab® is provided as an aide in creating and analyzing the data as well as conducting post-hoc analysis. Participants should be able to understand and apply basic industrial research terminology, understand the different factor types, apply basic statistical tools and understand the steps in creating and setting up an experiment then finally analyzing with MiniTab®.
