Black Belt

Six Sigma Black BeltThe four week Black Belt program was first offered by as a way for individuals with no prior experience to pursue a Six Sigma Black Belt certification. The course requires four weeks of training. The first two weeks are Green Belt with the second two weeks consisting of the Black Belt after Green Belt. We developed this format, so individuals from the same company could attend the training together. This improves the synergy within the organization, but also encourages more flexibility. If your organization is in the deployment phase, we provide a variety of onsite programs, including Six Sigma Champion courses that are geared toward executives.
