Course Overviewremove_circle_outline

Black Belts are highly trained Six Sigma experts who possess the knowledge and skills that are necessary to facilitate breakthrough improvements in key processes that support the overall aims of an enterprise or operating unit. They serve as change agents, internal consultants, mentors to Green Belts and assistants to Six Sigma Champions. Black Belts optimize existing technology, or bring new technologies on line at optimal operating conditions and are the masters of problem solving.

Black Belts have the technical and leadership capability to improve the performance of an existing industrial or commercial process, regardless of complexity or output volume. They also tackle and solve specific process-oriented or design-centric problems that have a negative impact on customer satisfaction, operational capability, output capacity, cycle time and other performance-related metrics.

Prerequisitesadd_circle_outline

Basic arithmetic skills are essential (i.e., be able to perform addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and work with fractions and decimals). Basic computer skills are also essential. In this context, a rudimentary understanding of Excel is highly recommended, but not essential. Furthermore, a most rudimentary understanding of algebra is a plus, but not required.
