Black Belt Certificate

Upcoming Dates: Enroll



Duration: 15 Days | 10.5 CEUs

Fee: ,


This course teaches you the advanced problem-solving skills you’ll need in order to measure a process, analyze the results, develop process improvements and quantify the resulting savings. Project assignments between sessions require you to apply what you’ve learned. This course is presented in the classroom in three five-day sessions over a three-month period.

NOTE: Participants must bring a laptop computer running Microsoft Office® to the seminar.

To earn the Black Belt, participants must pass the Black Belt Exam (included in course fee) and successfully complete the Black Belt project.


Learn the advanced problem-solving skills you need to implement the principles, practices, and techniques of Six Sigma to maximize performance and cost reductions in your organization. During this three-week practitioner course, you will learn how to measure a process, analyze the results, develop process improvements, and quantify the resulting savings.

You will be required to complete a project demonstrating mastery of appropriate analytical methods and pass an examination to earn the Six Sigma Black Belt Certificate. This practitioner course for Six Sigma implementation provides extensive coverage of the Six Sigma process, as well as, intensive exposure to the key analytical tools associated with Six Sigma, including project management, team skills, cost analysis, FMEA, basic statistics, inferential statistics, sampling, goodness of fit testing, regression and correlation analysis, reliability, design of experiments, statistical process control, measurement systems analysis, and simulation. Computer applications are emphasized.

This Six Sigma Black Belt course has been evaluated and recommended for graduate semester credits by the American Council on Education (ACE). Students can earn up to six semester hours in graduate credit at the discretion of each student’s college or university. ACE recommends that the course is equivalent to three semester hours in statistics for quality assurance and three hours in statistical process or design of experiments.
