Students are expected to have a basic knowledge and understanding of mathematics and have worked in project teams in a work or educational environment. It is not required that students hold a certificate in Six Sigma Green or Yellow Belt prior to taking this 8-day Black Belt course. Those students already with Lean Six Sigma Green Belt training and certification are advised to sign-up for the 3-day Black Belt course instead of the 8-day course.


There are no course prerequisities for this 5-day Lean Six Sigma course other than a basic understanding of mathematics ( GCSE level or equivalent).
