Lean Six Sigma

Green Belt Certification

Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Certification training introduces the participant to two methodologies of improvement: Lean and Six Sigma. The methodologies will use tools, such as 5S and DMAIC, to improve processes and workflow. The course teaches participants to collect and analyze performance data, identify inefficiencies and problems, pinpoint the root causes of those problems and institute new protocols to greatly improve processes. Participants will be expected to implement the methodologies learned on a live project performed within the expected timeframe. Participants will receive access to statistical software during the course. Participants can choose whether or not to take the certification exam at the end to get their Six Sigma Green Belt Certification.

Instructor: Dan Grimsley, M.A., MBB, CPM, CMfgE

Mr. Grimsley is a Master Black Belt who has been in quality and process improvement for over 20 years and has trained participants all over the world in a variety of industries, including transactional, manufacturing, pharmaceutical, medical, government, and aerospace.

Additional Training

Introduction to Lean Methods

This 12-hour course introduces participants to the basic concepts of Lean methods and the integration of Lean tools. These concepts are demonstrated through a simulation exercise where participants explore the financial considerations for the organization. The course also discusses non-value in systems and how to remove them.

Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Certification

Lean Six Sigma Black Belt training for Greenbelts. This is 64-hour training is an accelerated program that coincides with prior Green Belt Training. This course focuses on advanced statistical tools and Lean methodologies. The course will include material learned at a Greenbelt level but consist of more in-depth problems and tools/methods to solve them.

Statistical Tools for Six Sigma Green and Black Belts - T-Tests, ANOVA, Hypothesis Testing, SPC, Correlation/Regression

This 24-hour course will include material learned at a Green Belt level but consist of more in-depth problems and tools/methods to solve them. This course is designed for Six Sigma Certified associates and other members that need to know how to APPLY statistical tools to their workplace. The course teaches the application of these tools and how to interpret the output of the data.
