Six Sigma training creates a special infrastructure of people within the organization (''Green Belts'' ''Black Belts'') who are experts in these methods. Each Six Sigma project carried out within an organization follows a defined sequence of steps and has quantified financial targets (e.g. cost reduction or profit increase). Black Belts are the people trained to lead and manage these often extensive and sometimes complex projects.
Our Six Sigma Black Belt is comprised of two weeks of training. The training course has two distinct parts: The in-class portion and a project. The in-class portion consists of lectures, exercises, and team-learning competitions.

A Black Belt indicates the ability to lead process improvement teams and activities along with the advanced statistical analysis capabilities required in the DMAIC process. All of the statistical and quality tools needed to successfully complete a Black Belt project will be thoroughly presented so that the student can return to his/her facility and readily apply them. A Black Belt project must demonstrate mastery of the five DMAIC phases as well as the leadership skills involved in team-based improvement activities. The successful completion of a Black Belt project is a vital part of the Black Belt training because in order to become certified by the American Society for Quality, the applicant must demonstrate competence. The course instructor will coach the Black Belt student through the project.
