Course Overview

Course Overview

The Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt is a 2-Day course.

The Yellow Belt certification is the first belt in the Lean Six Sigma series, thus provides a general introduction to the principles of Lean Six Sigma. This Yellow Belt training course teaches delegates how to work as part of a Lean Six Sigma team and provide support for supervisors, managers and/or Green/Black Belts.

A Yellow Belt candidate plays an important part in the implementation of Lean business improvement as they typically collect and analyse data, conduct the research and develop solutions. Lean Six Sigma Green Belts and Lean Six Sigma Black Belts tend to manage and lead Lean Six Sigma projects.

Whats Included

Is there Lunch?

We will provide a light lunch to each attending delegate.

Is there an Examination?

All delegates are required to take a Lean Six Sigma examination in order to complete the training course. If delegates are successful, they will acquire and possess the Yellow Belt certification. All delegates will receive the training and support they need to pass the examination first time.

The Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt exam is formatted with 40 Multiple Choice questions over a 1 hour period in an open-book classroom environment

What benefit will it bring the business?

To be recognised as professional (and a professional business), a credible test of knowledge, practical application, process control and learning attitude of both the company and the candidate is needed. This has been the founding principle of Quality standards such as ISO9001 and Health & Safety standards such as OHSAS 18001 for many years.

The International Standardisation Organisation (ISO) has now created international standard ISO 18404 that is auditable every 3 years and challenges the candidate and thus the Company to demonstrate the required skills and behaviours expected of today’s change agents.

ISO18404:2015 is an auditable certification ensures that your team are truly capable to lead transforming projects and programmes and deliver the right answers. The certification needs to be maintained and as such will to form the basis of the candidates on-going professional development.

Having the ISO18404 accolade will help improve the companies chances of winning competitive tender projects, being recognised as a credible supplier in the eyes of the customer and ultimately help to gain more profitable sales.

Having this accreditation demonstrates your competencies to:

  • Lead multi-functional teams in change programmes
  • Reduce costs
  • Improve quality
  • Train others
  • Identify the appropriate solution

Ultimately this accolade should help to improve the candidates position in the company, increase promotion prospects and the associated rewards that come from being a recognised management professional. The Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt is your first step towards realising these rewards.
