This 3-day introductory course in Six Sigma, will give you a thorough understanding of Six Sigma and its focus on eliminating defects through fundamental process knowledge. The course has been designed to cover all of the recognized Six Sigma green belt topics efficiently. The class includes those concepts and tools that provide immediate value when applied at all levels of an organization’s operations.

The instructors have had years of experience applying these to real processes ranging from manufacturing to healthcare to financial services to government. Topics covered, in addition to DMAIIC and Six Sigma philosophy, include basic statistics, statistical process control, process capability, financial implications and root cause analysis..

It is the first true introductory course and is intended for individuals at all levels within the organization. This Green Belt course is shorter than many other Green Belt courses because we include only the tools and information necessary for immediate application. Instead of padding our hands-on courses with black belt topics that the beginner practitioner does not need, we keep the black belt topics in the advanced courses and allow the beginner practitioner to learn the basics quickly to improve operations.


Learn how to integrate principles of business, statistics, and engineering to achieve tangible results. Master the use of Six Sigma to quantify the critical quality issues in your company.

Once the issues have been quantified, statistics can be applied to provide probabilities of success and failure. Six Sigma methods increase productivity and enhance quality.

As a Six Sigma green belt, you will be equipped to support and champion Six Sigma implementation in your organization.  The final afternoon of the class you will have the option to take the green belt exam.  The exam is included in the course fee.  Participants who pass the exam receive a Six Sigma Green Belt Certificate.
