Green Belt Certification Training Upgrade from Yellow Belt

Cost: Contact us for quote.   Duration: 2 days

Contact Us to book.


This 2-day Green Belt Certification Training Course is intended for existing Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt or those who have equivalent workplace experience.  This exam based international certification is the fastest path for you to become a Green Belt.

The Yellow Belt Training provided fundamental skills in the Define, Measure and Control steps of the DMAIC process. This upgrade to Six Sigma Green Belt course provides you with significant more in-depth knowledge and skills in the Analyse and Improve phases, and empowers you with the ability to really drive improvements in your workplace.

Learning Outcomes

During this course, participants will enhance their skills to the Green Belt level and develop:

  • Ability to use a structured approach to process improvement
  • Ability to use all steps of DMAIC (with a focus on Analyse and Implement) methodology
  • Skill to achieve sustainable quality improvement through process improvement
  • Understanding of the tools of process discovery
  • Understanding of variation in processes
  • Skill to reduce variation in processes and achieve predicted outcomes
  • Ability to identify, measure and analyse process potential
  • Usage of inferential statistics
  • Usage of hypothesis testing
  • Understanding when to use which Six Sigma methodology
  • Ability to use Capability Analysis to control processes
  • Knowledge of the interdependence of Lean tools
  • Skill to prevent, identify and control defects
  • Understanding and use of statistical process control
  • Skill to train, document, monitor, respond, and align systems
  • Skill to provide sustainable and cost-effective improvement in processes  


Prior to accepting your enrolment, you will be provided with an IASSC Practice Test to confirm your existing knowledge, and if accepted, we will provide you with the IASSC authorised Green Belt training materials a week before the course runs, so you can review the materials beforehand and pick up the training without missing a beat.

 This upgrade course includes days 4 and 5 from the complete 5-day Green Belt course.  It picks up from where the Yellow Belt training left off.

 By moving up from the Yellow Belt to Green Belt, you will learn and develop substantial skills in the Analyse and Improve phases of DMAIC.
