Six Sigma Certification


Six Sigma is a Quality Improvement methodology structured to reduce product or service failure rates to a negligible level (roughly 3.4 failures per million opportunities). To achieve six sigma levels, the Six Sigma process encompasses all aspects of a business, including management, service delivery, design, production and customer satisfaction. 

Six Sigma companies typically spend less than 5 percent of their revenues addressing and repairing quality problems. As a philosophy Six Sigma drives business culture and requires a nearly flawless execution of key processes making Six Sigma a high standard for companies and individuals to achieve.

Customers place a high value on predictably consistent business processes and Six Sigma is a proven methodology for delivering consistent incremental improvement. By reducing process variation Six Sigma frees the organization to focus on improving process capability and as sigma levels increase, the cost of poor quality decreases and profitability increases. This is why Six Sigma is highly associated with the delivery of consistent world-class quality.

The Six Sigma Greenbelt online program provides an overview of the Six Sigma concepts and tools including Six Sigma deployment practices, project development, and the DMAIC problem-solving approach.

Students should have a general understanding of basic mathematical functions, the reading comprehension level of a high school graduate, and general proficiency in using Windows-based computer software.

By completing this course, students will be able to:
  • Recognize key attributes of a successful Six Sigma program.

  • Appreciate project selection criteria.

  • Realize the role of a Green Belt in the Six Sigma organization.

  • Understand fundamentals of the DMAIC problem solving methodology.

  • Use basic Six Sigma tools for Six Sigma project definition and process baseline.

  • Understand the need for advanced problem solving and improvement methodologies used by Project Teams.

  • Actively participate in a Six Sigma team.

This training is suitable for anyone wanting to learn the fundamental skills necessary to contribute to a Six Sigma team as a Green Belt. In addition, Six Sigma Champions, who sponsor projects, will also benefit from this understanding of the Six Sigma project methodology.

Green Belts are chosen for Six Sigma project teams based on their process knowledge. They work as part of a team assigned to a given project, maintaining their operational roles in the organization. Eventually, most employees will achieve Green Belt status.
