Lean Six Sigma Certification

In a post COVID-19 world, our organizations must be flexible, streamlined, and cost-efficient, all the while meeting customers’ needs.   Leaders that understand and can use process improvement techniques are essential to organizations who need to adapt quickly and provide value to their customers and constituents.  Our virtual Lean Six Sigma certification programs help you start or continue your journey to mastering the tools necessary to lead your organization through times of continued change and challenge.

Our vision is to offer organizations the opportunity of building in-house capabilities where results are achieved quickly, and the resources are sustained to promote continual improvement. We don’t just give you the tools for improvement, we equip you with a mindset that will serve you and your organization.

A recent survey published in Quality Progress (December 2019) showed that Yellow Belts make on average $2,000 more than those without a Yellow Belt certification, Green Belts make on average $10,000 more than those without any certification, and Black Belts make on average $25,000 more than those without any certification.  Why are organizations willing to pay more for Six Sigma Belts?  Lean Six Sigma Belts are critical to the success of an organization’s continuous improvement efforts because they possess the ability to:

  • Lead and participate in projects that require advanced analytics
  • Design/redesign processes to be nimble and flexible
  • Achieve significant improvement in performance metrics that are critical to success.

All of our highly interactive programs offer remote learning where “remote” doesn’t mean “alone”.  Our Master Black Belt instructors have extensive experience delivering virtual training and support.  And our courses are designed to “stack” so that you can start at the basics and move into the more advanced tools when you are ready.

Our Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt (Process Improvement Specialist) certification helps you start your journey to discovering the tools necessary to lead your organization through times of change and challenge.
