02 Oct Certificate Program: Lean Six Sigma Green Belt for Diagnostic Laboratories
37 Contact hours ($1,295.00): Estimated Course Completion: 8 Weeks
Welcome to Lean Six Sigma Green Belt!
Six Sigma is a consistent, data-driven, standard approach to continuous improvement subject to the needs and requirements of the customer. The Six Sigma hierarchy is based on a gradually increasing skill set, similar to martial arts–many start at a very basic ‘White Belt’ or ‘Yellow Belt’ Level, followed by a ‘Green Belt’ Level, progressing to a ‘Black Belt’ Level and finally a ‘Master Black Belt’ Level. At a Green Belt level you will be knowledgeable of the core concepts of Lean and Six Sigma; you will be qualified to lead basic improvement projects and participate as a team member on more complex projects led by a Black Belt.
This Lean Six Sigma Green Belt series includes a bundle of 6 modules: Lean, Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control all applicable for the skill and knowledge of the laboratorian. Six Sigma is a consistent data driven standard approach to continuous improvement based on the needs and requirements of the customer. In this series, we translate all aspects of this methodology into laboratory terms. You will learn the tools to identify, collect and analyze the most appropriate data specific to defining the problem and brainstorming and piloting solutions to eliminate defective processes. The Green Belt working under the lead of the black belt is instrumental in the process and will demonstrate the use of quality tools applicable to process improvement in the laboratory.
In this course, we will prepare the learner for the Green Belt certification by following the American Society of Quality Body of Knowledge (BOD) and prepare the learner to sit for the Green Belt certification exam administered by the American Society of Quality (ASQ).

- Reflection Point questions for more critical thinking
- Project: 6 assignments that will prepare you for a future six sigma project
Virtual Group Instruction Available as a part of this course.
We provide live virtual classrooms to assist teams explore lessons in depth and apply the concepts to their live environment. The virtual classrooms includes weekly sessions with the instructor intended to allow teams to ask questions regarding the content, share lessons learned with other learners and brainstorm direction for change.
