Course Overview

Course Overview

The Lean Six Sigma Black Belt is a 5 Day Course.

It is the third in the Lean Six Sigma Belt sequence, which provides delegates with essential and practical knowledge of Six Sigma and its methodology. This course builds on the concepts introduced at the Yellow and Green Belt stages and will provide the delegates with everything they need to establish themselves as Lean Six Sigma experts. Delegates will be introduced to a variety of tools they can use to analyse and identify where business developments should occur.

The Black Belt produces efficient managers who possess extensive analytical skills, which allow them to determine appropriate resolutions to business problems. By the end of the course, Black Belts will be able to implement DMAIC methodology effectively, and be capable of delivering and managing Lean Six Sigma projects successfully.

Our training instructors are CMI approved and experts in the industrial application and knowledge of Six Sigma. Our trainers will effectively transfer their expertise to the candidates in a supportive, professional and passionate, easy to understand manner. The result will be a delegate who is efficient and confident in applying Green Belt notions.

During this certification, candidates gain the knowledge required to execute data analysis for Black Belt led company-wide continuous improvement projects. Six Sigma tools, processes, and the value of these to an organisation are key areas of focus and delegates are taught how to apply the techniques to any quality improvement project. Such tools and processes are significant for enterprises due to the business benefits that they can generate.

This course is a continuation from the Pre-requiste Green Belt course and builds upon lean practical application to enable the delegate to successfully execute a Lean Six Sigma Project

Whats Included

Is there Lunch?

We will provide a light lunch to each attending delegate.

Is there an Examination?

All delegates are required to have taken and passed a Green Belt Lean Six Sigma examination in order to complete the Black Belt training course. All delegates will receive the training and support they need to pass the examination.

This Black Belt assessment is comprised of two parts. One part is a case study task worth 50%, which is carried out in the classroom.

The second part is an examination that also makes up 50% of the mark. Out of the 100% available, delegates must achieve 70% to pass.

Typical Attendees

Who should attend?

This course is designed for anybody who is interested in Business Improvement, particularly managers as the Black Belt certification displays commitment to business efficiency development. Some other professions that may benefit from this qualification include Project Engineers, Business Analysts, Process Developers, and anyone working in production.

This course would be particularly beneficial for organisations who have a culture of Continuous Improvement and who understand the role, skilled, experienced and qualified people (SEQP) play in the improvement process.


The pre-requiste for attending the Black Belt course is a Lean Six Sigma Green Belt. There will be a small amount of work to complete prior to the course.
