Lean Six Sigma Black Belt

BTI’s Lean Six Sigma Black Belt training is designed for systems, software, and hardware engineers, program managers, and process improvement and quality assurance personnel who want to lead projects to solve challenges and help their organizations improve.  The course is focused on learning and applying both technical and people skills as the leader of a successful Lean Six Sigma project.

BTI’s Lean Six Sigma Black Belt training is taught as a three-week (fifteen days) classroom or online instructor-led course.  BTI’s Black Belt class covers the information required for the ASQ Certified Black Belt exam.

The course is offered both online and in-person classroom training.  In addition to 105 hours of instruction, the student will have online assignments outside of class to exercise the skills learned in class.  Although not required, students may bring information on their current project to class to consult with the instructors.

The course includes discussion of applying Lean Six Sigma in organizations using systems, software, and hardware engineering to develop, upgrade, and maintain technology-based products and services.

BTI supplies all instructional slides, books, student materials, and exercises for the course, including:

  • The Quality Council of Indiana’s Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Primer
  • Lean Six Sigma Mathematics and R
  • A course completion certificate for each student
  • Breakfast and lunch on all days (classroom offerings only)
