The Green Belt class focuses on basic project management skills, with the addition of more detailed analysis of data, experimental techniques, and decision making. The Green Belt class requires about 60 hours of work, about 28 hours pre-work before class and 36 in class (5 day class) . Although the material requires only basic math skills, familiarity with using a calculator, looking up data in tables, and choosing the correct formulas are critical to success. An open book exam covering the pre-work and class work material completes the week. A project is not required for the Green Belt, but many organizations require their team members to complete a project in-house. Project coaching is available upon request.
Green Belt classes are highly interactive, using multiple simulations and examples to teach the concepts and keep class interesting and applicable to common business challenges.

Six Sigma classes are offered multiple times each year in an open enrollment format at various locations around the state of Alabama. We also offer on-site classes for companies who have enough students for a full class. Companies sometimes host open enrollment classes at their facilities if there is enough local interest.
