Six Sigma Black Belt Certification

Six Sigma Black Belt Certification is a cross functional experience to assist individuals in being able to utilize statistical tools and measures to reduce variation.  It is a 120-hour, 15-day program, with an open book test on the last day.  The content is designed to cover the majority of the ASQ Body of Knowledge. Students are required to have a project which the format allows participants to work on between classes, either individually or in teams, utilizing the tools learned.  This program is more extensive in nature to that of the Green Belt and much more detail is explored with each topic. The course follows the D-M-A-I-C model in the learning process. A list of topics is as follows:

Introduction to Statistical Thinking            Define
Six Sigma Concepts                                       Project Selection
DMAIC Process                                              Pareto Analysis
Concepts of Variability                                    Initial Capability Analysis

Central Limit Theorem                                    Project Schedules
Project Management                                      Team and Meeting Management

 Measure                                                        Analyze
Voice of the Customer                                    Histogram and Box Plots
