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.
Yellow Belts: Familiar with the fundamental tenets of Lean Six Sigma concepts, an understanding of the overall methodology, basic data collection, the language of hypothesis testing and measurement systems. Typically, Yellow Belts are not regular members of a process improvement team but need to contribute towards Lean Six Sigma projects.
The packages are based on knowledge from the ‘Council for Six Sigma Certification’ and years of industry experience by Efficiency Works trainers and consultants.
Online learning for Lean Six Sigma Belt courses delivers the following outcomes for successful participants and for the organisation:
The Lean Six Sigma methodology, tools and frameworks can be applied to any work environment where business/continuous improvement and the resulting outcomes are a strategic imperative.

Learners will be sent a link to enrol in their chosen Belt course and will be provided personal access to our Learning Management System (LMS) which contains the required training, support materials and a series of sequential quizzes to help you confirm knowledge and understanding.
The LMS sets out the study agenda and the associated quizzes, each of which requires a minimum 80% pass score before they can progress to the next topic. Learners can attempt the quiz as many times as is required.
Once registered, you have 12 months access to the course allowing you to return at any time and revise the concepts. Students will need access to a computer or tablet, with a reliable internet connection.
