What is the Lean Six Sigma Training - Black Belt Course?

The Black Belt Lean Six Sigma training course is a globally recognised qualification in accordance with the ISO 18404:2015 standard and accredited by CEPAS, the Lean Six Sigma Black Belt course was developed for individuals looking to be trained to an advance level in Lean Six Sigma methodologies. This course will equip you with the skills and knowledge needed to successfully lead complex improvement projects in all areas of a business.    

Lean Six Sigma is a methodology that is made up of two separate approaches: Lean Management and Six Sigma:

  • Lean methodologies can help to improve and expand customer value whilst reducing wasted resources when implemented into your business projects.
  • The Six Sigma methodology is a process that looks at how an organisation can continually reduce product and process variation using defined product approaches.

Professionals who have achieved Lean Six Sigma Black Belt qualifications are needed by many businesses around the world as these individuals have exceptional problem-solving capabilities and the advanced knowledge to help businesses successfully save costs, grow customer satisfaction, improve efficiency and reach business solutions whilst implementing important and specific quality control processes.

The Lean Six Sigma methodologies are defined by ISO 18404:2015, (the international standard for both Lean and Six Sigma). It outlines the management systems requirements for how individuals and organisations can use the Lean and Six Sigma methodologies, as well as the competencies needed when implementing the two approaches within business projects.

The Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Training course is taught across 8 days (which includes 5 days training for Green Belt). If you have already achieved your Green Belt certification within the past 3 years, you have the option to just attend the latter 3 days dedicated to Black Belt training. 

Upon completion of the course, you will have the confidence to:

  •    Utilise a wide array of analytical and graphical tools associated with Six Sigma (at the Black Belt level)
  •    Correctly select, utilise and interpret the results from several core analytical tools
  •    Demonstrate a robust knowledge of the correct usage of objective data in improvement projects
  •    Begin to develop the competencies required by ISO 18404 through knowledge and practice of a series of technical tools 

Lean Six Sigma has proven to be a highly successful methodology by many companies from around the world. It is a popular approach because it can help business owners improve morale amongst their employees, enhance customer satisfaction, achieve better business retention as well as lessen costs.  

If you are new to Lean Six Sigma or Project Management, we highly recommend that you begin training for your CEPAS Yellow Belt or Green Belt in order to build a basic understanding of the methodology first before moving onto the advanced Black Belt qualification.
