Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt

Yellow Belt Training

Participants attend seven two-hour weekly sessions with an instructor over Zoom, and work on a process improvement project. Participants should be either a process owner or have a direct line to the process owner to implement improvement changes. All prospective participants must complete an application form and either be nominated by or have supervisor and department head approval.
