Six Sigma Black Belt
- The Six Sigma Black Belt training is an intensive four-week course, with one-week training sessions followed by three to four weeks of application. This gives the Black Belt candidate the opportunity to apply the Six Sigma tools in their own business environment and complete an improvement project.
Project Selection -
Ideally, the project selection is done with the assistance of their organization's Six Sigma Champion to reap the rewards of the improvement savings and meet some critical business issues.
On the first day of each one-week session, the candidate presents the project's progress and all its deliverables in ASC's standard Six Sigma project format. The project will then be reviewed and a gap analysis will be conducted. The candidates will work on the same project throughout the training sessions.
Train, Demonstrate, Plan, Apply & Review -
The Apply-and-Review format of the training will give the candidate practical experience and strong confidence in problem-solving while learning the Six Sigma tools and DMAIC approach.
Upon completion of the course, the candidates have a period of three months to finalize the project and present it for inclusion into the Certification process. In most situations, the first project's improvements and savings justifies the course fees of ten Six Sigma Black Belts.
Master Black Belt support is available and recommended during the Black Belt certification and Six Sigma implementation process.
