Black Belt Certification

Program Overview and Objectives

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

    • Advanced Regression and ANOVA
    • Advanced Capability
    • Design of Experiments
    • Non-Parametric Distribution(s)
    • Logistic Regression


Program Description

    • Process Flow Charting
    • Distributions and Statistical Processes
    • Control Charts
    • Process Capability
    • Measurement Systems Analysis (Gauge R&R)
    • Failure Mode Effects and Criticality Analysis (FMEA)
    • Inferential Statistics
    • Correlation and Regression
    • Analysis of Variance
    • Multiple Regression
    • Goodness of Fit Testing
    • Design of Experiments
    • Factorial Design
    • Variability Reduction using Design of Experiments



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.

Cost:  $7995.00 by November 18, 2021, otherwise $8,495/person – Includes (4) individualized onsite project mentoring meetings. Funding up to 40% may be available.  To understand if you qualify, please contact Diane Lewis at (610) 628-4578 or at
