Online Lean Six Sigma Belt Course – Green Belt

Program Overview

Lean Six Sigma is a systematic approach to continuous improvement achieved by removing wasteful non-value-adding activities and reducing process variation. The methodology, tools and frameworks can be applied to any industry and to any workplace, delivering improvements in quality, service outcomes, customer satisfaction, revenue and margins, and strengthening organisational culture.

Lean Six Sigma Belts provide recognition for an individual on their awareness and understanding of Lean and Six Sigma concepts. A Belt holder in an organisation can be expected to help achieve higher performance and sustain competitive advantage.

Efficiency Works’ online Lean Six Sigma Belts’ program, which is delivered entirely online through our Learning Management System Portal, provides graduated learning of the knowledge components required for Yellow Belts, Green Belts and Black Belts.

Belts are a good steppingstone to ‘Competitive Systems and Practices’, the only accredited certification for Lean Six Sigma training recognised in Australia.

Green Belts: Work within Lean Six Sigma teams, deliver or lead small projects on their own, help Black Belts apply tools to larger projects, and undertake most of the statistical data collection and Lean tool deployment. The key step from Yellow to Green is undertaking and analysing statistics using Advanced Excel or Mini Tab.

The packages are based on knowledge from the ‘Council for Six Sigma Certification’ and years of industry experience by Efficiency Works trainers and consultants.
