The Six Sigma Green Belt workshop will provide training for those needing to use the principles of Six Sigma problem-solving skills in order to serve or to lead a Six Sigma Team, but who do not need to be at a Black Belt level. This class will provide the first level of training required to progress to the Six Sigma Black Belt level.

This course will cover many areas of Six Sigma problem solving, requiring general understanding, basic understanding, in-depth understanding of the various principles of Six Sigma and how to use DMAIC methodology.
