This The first 10 days of this Black Belt Certification training focuses on Green Belt topics, while the last 7 days cover Black Belt material. We developed this format so that individuals within the same company could attend the training together. This improves the synergy within the organization.

After successfully completing the Six Sigma Black Belt course participants will be able to explain multiple regression, perform factorial experiments, determine size calculations needed for experiments, and describe the different types of process optimization.  Typically Black Belt projects save $50K to  $100K in cost savings in process improvement.

Course Highlights

In addition to what is taught during the Green Belt topics, the last 7 days of training will focus on:
