This course includes the Yellow Belt program described above as its first module and goes on to cover the majority of statistical tools needed for DMAIC projects. The course is very 'hands on' with practical activities throughout the program. This course includes comprehensive training and use of the statistical software package Minitab Version 14.

This 5-day program is ideal for Six Sigma project team leaders and team members who need to be able to apply a wide range of Six Sigma tools on real life projects. The course has proved to be equally relevant to manufacturing and service/ transactional environments. The mix of delegates on the training is one of the attractions of attending this open program.

Each participant receives a comprehensive delegate pack including a Six Sigma Improvement Toolbook, Statistical Tool guides, Worksheets, Project examples and support materials for use in Minitab.


You will attain 35 professional development units (PDUs).
