Courses


We currently offer two courses; Lean Six Sigma Green Belt and Black Belt. Both courses are 5-days (M-F) and are in-class, instructor led. Class location is DeVry University in Henderson, NV ~ 215/Pecos

Both courses use a “Lean Biased” curriculum, meaning they are roughly 80% Lean and 20% six sigma. The purpose for this Lean emphasis is based on the generally accepted philosophy of “Lean first, Six Sigma after”. Certified Green and Black Belts must be able to remove process waste and improve key performance metrics; which is the foundation of Lean.

Credential earned for course completion  is a “Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Certificate” or “Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Certificate”. Included with tuition is a certification exam, provided by the American Association for Lean Six Sigma Certification (AALSSC). Certification exam if offered during the afternoon of Day 5 (Friday afternoon) session. If student passes exam they will be awarded a Lean Six Sigma Green Belt or Black Belt “Certification” from AALSSC. Please visit aalssc.org for more information.

Green Belt

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 methods, apply root cause analysis tools and implement proven Lean Six Sigma countermeasures.

There is a total of 30 classroom hours with additional 4-5 hours of study to be completed after class hours. A previous day content review will be accomplish during at the beginning of days 2-5. A final team presentation and submission of project documentation is required for course completion.
