Do I need Minitab or any other additional software?
Unlike some of our competitors, you do not need Minitab software to complete our online Green Belt course. Many Green Belt projects do not require the level of statistical training which would involve statistical software. However, we do provide detailed information on using data in your projects based on Excel and SPC Plus (SPC Plus is included free in the Green Belt package).
If you enrol in advanced greenbelt or Blackbelt programmes you will require Minitab (v.16 or above) software. We can provide Minitab software if required.
How long will it take to complete the course?
In the classroom Green Belt training duration is six days, Advanced Green Belt a further six days, Change Management 3 days, ABB Tools 3 days, LSSID 3 days.
You should expect to spend a similar amount of time completing the modules online.
You can expect to spend around 100 hours on a Green Belt project and 200-300 on a Black Belt project.
What is the course process?
- Enrol in our Business Improvement Zone (BIZ) where you will have access to all of your resources including guidance on deciding your learning strategy.
- Make contact with your assigned tutor as soon as you are ready.
- Review the high-level roadmap and project guides which will lead you through the tutorials topic by topic.
- Complete the quizzes and practical exercises when indicated.
- Receive course completion certificate.
- You may if desired, sit the (optional) online BQF Green Belt, Yellow Belt exam or Blackbelt exam – included at no extra cost. This is a requirement if you intend to pursue BQF certification.
- If you are going to complete a project, you can work on it in parallel with training or wait until you have completed training. (Either way, you can constantly refer to the materials for 12 months).
- If you want to be BQF certified, compile and submit your project storyboard and attend an assessment interview (usually by phone).
- Receive your Green Belt, Yellow Belt & Black Belt certificate from the BQF. Green and Black Belt names will appear on their register of certified belts.
- You may wish, now or later, to undertake further training to build on your knowledge.
- Whether you do or not, please stay in touch with us and your fellow Lean Six Sigma practitioners through our Practitioners Network.
Do I need a project to complete the course?
We do not require a project to be delivered for the training course to be completed, though we strongly recommend that you accompany the coursework with a meaningful project. A real-world project will significantly enhance the learning experience because you can use it to directly practice the concepts and tools as you complete the course, and because relating the learning to real situations really brings it to life.
Successful project delivery is required if you wish to become a certified Green Belt or Black belt and for Yellow Belts a project or evidence of practical application is necessary.
What support do you offer to help me with the training?
You will be assigned one of our classroom trainers as your personal tutor. Our trainers are all experienced Lean Six Sigma practitioners who have been there and done it for real prior to joining Catalyst. You will be able to email your tutor for guidance as you work through the training programme, for example if you are unsure of how or when to apply a certain tool.
Do I receive a training certificate?
On finishing the programme you will receive a training certificate which provides evidence that you have completed this widely recognised and respected training course – we have had thousands of previous highly satisfied customers from major organisations of all kinds all over the world.
If you decide to sit the British Quality Foundation exam (included in the course price), you will receive a printed confirmation when you pass.
How can I become British Quality Foundation certified?
As a partner in the Lean Six Sigma Academy, Catalyst has played a major role in developing the British Quality Foundation’s (BQF) certification processes. BQF certification provides independent verification of competency in applying the Lean and Six Sigma methods across a range of expertise levels. It is widely recognised by your current and any future employer
If you decide to put your training into practice on a business improvement project, you can have this assessed by the BQF. You’ll be required to submit a project storyboard (1 for Green Belt & 2 for Black Belt) or evidence of your practical application of tools and methods (for Yellow Belt) and discuss this during an assessment interview, which is done by telephone.
If you are successful, you will receive a BQF Lean Six Sigma certificate from them. There is an additional cost for certification.
Do I have an option at point of payment for certification?
Yes – simply select the option for course and certification
Do I have to do an exam?
The exam is provided and included in the training price. It is separate from the various quizzes you will come across as you progress through the training course.
If you don’t wish to pursue BQF certification to become a certificated Green Belt, Yellow Belt or Black Belt, you do not have to take the exam. However, if you do want to achieve certification, taking and passing the exam is compulsory.
The exams are open book, meaning that you can consult your course materials as you work through the questions, they are multiple choice. You’ll be notified of the result instantly on completion – free of charge re-sit is available if you don’t pass first time round.
