Name: Six Sigma Green Belt Week 1 Training
Date: October 15, 2018
Event Description:

This course will be taught by local Lean Six Sigma Consultant, Brion Hurley, from Business Performance Improvement. offers an internationally-recognized Six Sigma Green Belt training and certification program. As part of our four-week Black Belt option, our Green Belt program may be taken alone or as the first step to earning your Black Belt. In fact, was the first organization to offer a program that allowed students with no prior experience to complete the Green Belt and Black Belt programs consecutively to earn an internationally-recognized Black Belt certification.

An added benefit of this option is the ability for individuals from the same company to complete the training together even if they are working toward different belt levels. This format promotes synergy and encourages groups to work together, while also providing the flexibility to mix and match locations.
