I only have a basic understanding of the principles, do you think this would hold me back?

A. Catalyst’s Green Belt course is designed to be appropriate for delegates with no previous experience. There is some maths, but it’s not too difficult….you can try some of the maths by clicking here.

Our course is also ideal for those with some knowledge as it gives comprehensive hands-on experience to enhance understanding and capability.

I want to register for six sigma accreditation, but unsure if I should do the Yellow Belt training before Green Belt?

A. You can start straight at Green Belt if you wish, our Green Belt course includes all of the Yellow Belt course content.

Yellow Belt is good if you are going to be part of a team, whereas Green Belt will equip you to actively and confidently lead improvement projects.

I’m looking at undertaking the online training for Lean Six Sigma. I don’t know whether to start at Advanced Green Belt or Black Belt, what is the normal route people take?

A. The Black Belt programme contains all of the learning content from Green Belt, so you ultimately cover the same ground. You can start at Green Belt level and then upgrade progressively via Advanced Green Belt and/or Black Belt. Most people who really are focused on Black Belt as their objective, start on the Black Belt path from the start.
