Become better prepared to provide an organization with leadership and knowledge expertise of a certified Six Sigma Black Belt. Course content is built around the American Society for Quality?s (ASQ) Body of Knowledge. Black Belts lead cross-functional project teams to carry out identified improvement projects, implement all appropriate tools of Six Sigma and provide statistical expertise for project teams. Black Belts work with, lead and mentor cross-functional teams to define and measure problems, analyze root causes, implement improvements and establish control at new levels. To achieve certification, students must successfully complete all online modules, pass an in-class certification exam, demonstrate proficiency of data analysis techniques using Mini-tab, and demonstrate proficiency in applying the Six Sigma skills by documentation of a completed Six Sigma project.
Note Students who wish to also achieve ASQ certification will be prepared for that exam, but the ASQ exam is not a requirement of this course. This course blends classroom instruction with required online assignments.
