What is the Green Belt Certification?
A professional who has undergone the Six Sigma Green Belt Certification Training is well-versed in the Lean Six Sigma Methodology. The Lean Six Sigma Methodology refers to a business management strategy that uses collaborative efforts in a team-based structure. The method focuses on the removal of waste to enhance performance. The green belt certification refers specifically to a part-time project leader or supporter. A green belt professional should also possess a thorough knowledge of Six Sigma tools, as well as the phases of DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, and Control).
What should one expect from a training program?
Specific training depends on the program you chose to take. There are various training course structures, from online to one-on-one, to in-class lectures. Generally, a quality course should offer at least 100 hours of training, outside work and assignments, as well as pass a course-based exam. It is also preferable to find a course that asks students to present real-world projects. This gives students the opportunity to put their skills into practice without real-world consequences.
