Black Belt

Six Sigma Black Belt

The 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 first two weeks of training focus on Green Belt topics, while the last two weeks cover Black Belt topics. We developed this format so that individuals within the same company could attend the training together. This improves the synergy within the organization, but also allows for more flexibility. If your organization is in the deployment phase, we provide a variety of onsite programs, including Six Sigma Champion courses, geared toward executives.
