There are currently two course options;
- Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Review with accredited Exam
- The test prep is a single day event with a 2 ½ hour material review followed by a 1 ½ hour AALSSC (American Association for Lean Six Sigma Certification) accredited exam.
- A complete Lean Six Sigma Green Belt course with exam.
- The Green Belt courses are 9 days long (Monday – Thursday 6-9PM for 2 weeks with a review and proctored exam the following Saturday.)
Each of these options are in-class and instructor led. Class location is in Streetsboro Ohio.
All courses are “Lean Biased” curriculum, meaning they are roughly 80% Lean and 20% Six Sigma. The reason for this is, the generally accepted philosophy is, “Lean first, Six Sigma after”. Certified Green Belts must be able to remove process waste while simultaneously improving key performance metrics; which is the foundation of Lean.
Credential earned for any course completion is a “Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Certificate.” Included with tuition on select options is an accredited certification exam, provided by the American Association for Lean Six Sigma Certification (AALSSC). The certification exam is offered immediately following the course review on the first Saturday following the course completion. When a student passes the exam they are awarded a Lean Six Sigma Green Belt “Certification” from AALSSC. Please visit aalssc.org for more information. Upon successful completion of the course of study, each student will receive a Green Belt course “Certificate of completion.”
Course Objective: For students to learn and understand the foundations of Lean Six Sigma and to develop problem-solving, process improvement and facilitator skills. A graduate from this course is able to effectively implement solutions that result in lower costs, faster delivery, higher quality and increased safety of operations.
Course Description: Project-based curriculum that leverages the use of simulations, case studies and team dynamics for the most effective learning experience. Students learn and practice the skills necessary to map, analyze and improve work processes, implement change management strategies, apply structured problem-solving methodologies, apply root cause analysis tools and implement proven Lean Six Sigma countermeasures.
There is a total of 28 instructor-led classroom hours with additional 5-6 hours of study to be completed outside of class time. Beginning on day 2, each class will begin with a review of the previous day’s content. A final team presentation and submission of project documentation is required for course completion.
