Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Training

Also known as Business Improvement Techniques (Black Belt), we deliver lean six sigma black belt training internally to clients, offering a tailored approach to public and private sectors.

Who Should Attend This Course?

Have you previously relied on expensive consultancy services or external support without retaining skills in house? Or worse, persevered with poor performance and fire-fighting, whilst opportunities to address waste and variation are left untapped?

If you and your organisation are committed to implementing Lean Six Sigma and would like to achieve a high level of practical knowledge through applying learning and accountability for action you should attend this course.

We have worked with many companies, who:

  • Want to maintain a competitive edge and improve performance by reducing waste and variation in their processes.
  • Want to see skills learned on training courses used effectively when individuals return to the workplace.
  • Don’t have the skills or ability to know where to start

Upon completion, you will see ROI from the training completed in the form of the successful delivery of a project and in turn a boost in individual confidence and morale for successfully achieving a reduction in waste.

Your company will also retain the skills learned and replicate them to improve performance on other projects.

What Does The ILM Level 5 Certificate in Quality Improvement Involve?

A black belt qualification, the Level 5 Certificate in Quality Improvement is delivered in two parts. This is a four-to-six month long commitment to learning. A final report out and assessment post the successful completion of both parts of the 5 day course is required for qualification.
