Six Sigma Black Belt Certification
Six Sigma Black Belt Certification is a cross functional experience to assist individuals in being able to utilize statistical tools and measures to reduce variation. It is a 120-hour program, with an open book test on the last day. The content is designed to cover the majority of the ASQ Body of Knowledge. The format allows participants to work on projects between classes, either individually or in teams, utilizing the tools learned. This program is more extensive in nature to that of the Green Belt and much more detail is explored with each topic. The course follows the D-M-A-I-C national model in the learning process. A list of topics is as follows:
Introduction to Statistical Thinking Define
