Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt

Course Summary

This Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt course prepares participants to perform the role of a Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt as the first recognised level of LSS certification. The Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt training materials comprise a comprehensive curriculum covering everything within the Lean Six Sigma Body of Knowledge required to successfully complete Yellow Belt certification. After achieving this qualification, Yellow Belts utilises the newly acquired DMAIC methodology and the relevant tools during execution of the project as a part of a project under the supervision of a Green Belt.


Course Objectives

  • Gain a basic working knowledge of the Six Sigma DMAIC process
  • Develop an understanding of the Lean concepts and their practical application
  • Be able to identify and reduce 8 types of waste using selected process improvement tools
  • Identify and measure process variation
  • Develop basic problem solving & continuous improvement skills
