Grow your expertise and problem-solving potential with Six Sigma

Six Sigma is a highly disciplined process that focuses on developing and delivering near-perfect products and services consistently.

It is also a management approach to the use of statistical tools and project work to achieve breakthrough profitability and quantum gains in quality. Our program is completed in phases. The first phase is the “Knowledge” Phase, starting with a seven-day training, followed by 1 week of coaching and preparation for the Six Sigma Yellow Belt test. During the Knowledge Phase, students learn the basic terminology, principles, and methodology of Six Sigma. As the student progresses in knowledge mastery, the student will be working on lab assignments to help in understanding the standard sigma calculations and simple statistics. Additionally, there are Six Sigma project assignments that are a requirement for certification.
