Course duration

20 days








The Six Sigma Black Belt Certificate Program teaches participants a set of proven methods and tools for a five step methodology that will guide them through the "DMAIC Process:" 1. Define what needs to be improved; 2. Measure what is currently being done; 3. Analyze the data and develop an improvement plan; 4. Improve the current process and measure success; and 5. Control the gains and repeat the process. To complete the Six Sigma Black Belt Certificate Program, a participant must attend four - one week workshops within a two year period, complete all work assigned, be present for all class activities, and complete a Six Sigma Black Belt Application Project. The participants will be given an examination at the end of each workshop to assess their skills in the use and application of the Six Sigma Black belt tools and methodology, and the Instructor's effectiveness.

Requirement: Laptop Computers (windows 98, 200, Me, XP, NT 4; 32MB RAM; Pentium Processor 133 MHz or higher; CD-ROM Drive; 32MB HD space) and Minitab Statistical Software will be required for use in the workshops. Participants must furnish their own laptop computers.

Course objectives
