Course description

Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Upgrade - Online course

Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Upgrade training is for people who have already trained as a Green Belt and want to take their training further. As a trained Green Belt, you should already have a strong understanding of the theory and practical application of Lean Six Sigma.

Black Belts need to be able to introduce Lean Six Sigma to an organisation, run complex problems and train other people in the approach - this online training course from 100% Effective will equip you with all the skills you need to take on that role. You’ll learn the technical skills you need to identify root causes of problems, and solve them permanently. And, because Black Belts have a huge role to play in influencing others, this course will also give you the soft skills you need to make the case for change within your business.

This online course takes around 65 hours to complete - including time offline for project work -and you’re given six months access. The course is fully interactive and engaging, helping you stay interested throughout. There are games, animations, puzzles and knowledge checks to help embed your learning. And there are tasks you can complete offline if you want a break from your screen.It’s fully optimised so you can learn on any desktop, tablet or mobile device with an internet connection.

You’re entitled to two hour-long coaching sessions and unlimited email support to help you complete your project/s as part of this training course. If you previously completed a Green Belt with 100% Effective, you will need to submit one project to certify. If you trained elsewhere, you will need to provide evidence of a past project or you will need to submit two in order to certify. You will gain 90 CPD points upon successful completion of this course.
