USI is conducting a weeklong instructor-led certification covering how well your processes deliver the products or services your customers need is at the heart of Six Sigma. Evaluating when Six Sigma is the right toolkit and where other improvement methodologies like PDCA, Lean, 4DX or Work-Out might work better is critical to efficiency. Likewise, recognizing how to gain multi-generational acceptance is crucial for effective teams. Each module includes hands-on application based learning. Participants will be confident practitioners of the full Six Sigma DMAIC Green Belt toolkit along with understanding the key distinctions for managing Multi-Generational Teams.

The Green Belt Training Certificate is granted to those participants that attend all 5 days of training and pass the Green Belt exam. This course preps you for Certification, which requires a Green Belt Certificate and successfully completing a Green Belt project.
