Frequently Asked Questions

The questions we hear most often about Lean Six Sigma Training...

Certification

  • What certifications are available?

    We offer several different certifications, depending on which course you choose. Our in-company Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt Course is Professional Development certified.

    The Certified Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Course for Business leads to 2 certifications: a Professional Development Lean Six Sigma Green Belt, and a QQI Level 5 award in “Lean Manufacturing Tools”.

    Our International Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Course leads to both a Professional Development Lean Six Sigma Black Belt, and an IASSC (International Association for Six Sigma Certification) Black Belt.

  • Do I need experience? How do I know what certification to choose?

    Our Yellow Belt course is currently exclusively available for tailored, in-company training, and is ideal as an introductory course (no experience needed).

    Our Green Belt course, which is our most popular course, is available as a public course. No experience is needed for this course. You simply need an interest in Lean Six Sigma, and a willingness to focus during the classroom training and complete the assessment work.

    There are some eligibility requirements for our Black Belt course as it’s designed for those with experience in process improvement / Lean Six Sigma implementation.

    You can learn more about each course’s certification and eligibility requirements by visiting the course page.

  • How do I get certified?

    The certification method for each course varies. Some are project-based, some have an exam, and some have both a project and exam. You’ll find all the details you need by visiting the course page.

About Lean Six Sigma

  • What is Lean Six Sigma?

    Lean and Six Sigma are 2 methodologies, or approaches that enable you to reduce waste, cut costs and boost productivity and profitability when used together. You can learn more about Lean Six Sigma by reading our “What is Lean Six Sigma?” article.

  • How do I know if Lean Six Sigma is right for me?

    Lean Six Sigma works for pretty much any business or organisation. It can be implemented successfully in small, community organisations just as much as in large, Fortune 1000 companies.

    Because Lean originated in the manufacturing sector, and Six Sigma comes from the telecommunications industry, there is a myth that the methodologies are only effective in these sectors. We see a broad mix of delegates from every business and background on our courses from hospitality to finance to retail.
