INTRODUCTION

For accredited Green Belts, this programme provides the upgrade path to achieve Black Belt status, focusing on the advanced DMAIC tools that are required for more complex projects. The 2-block course format combines training inputs and practical exercises and case study simulations. Delegates are recommended to enter the programme with a suitable Lean Sigma project assigned, which should be progressed in parallel with training.

ACCREDITATION

The Smallpeice accreditation process for Lean Sigma Black Belts incorporates completing a project for formal assessment and passing a multi-choice examination.

INTRODUCTION

For accredited Green Belts, this programme provides the upgrade path to achieve Black Belt status, focusing on the advanced DMAIC tools that are required for more complex projects. The 2-block course format combines training inputs and practical exercises and case study simulations. Delegates are recommended to enter the programme with a suitable Lean Sigma project assigned, which should be progressed in parallel with training.

ACCREDITATION

The Smallpeice accreditation process for Lean Sigma Black Belts incorporates completing a project for formal assessment and passing a multi-choice examination.

BQF Accreditation Option: Smallpeice courses are also licensed for BQF (British Quality Foundation) accreditation, enabling candidates to achieve this external accreditation benchmark. The accreditation steps are as described above, with an additional £175 fee to cover the licensed accreditation route (Note: It is not necessary to decide which accreditation path is required before the start of the programme, and more details will be provided in Block 1).
