Why is Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt Worth it?

If you have begun thinking about process improvement and lean six sigma, it’s likely you have come across references to “yellow”, “green”, and “black” belts. It can be tricky to know where to begin.

While not an essential starting point, Yellow Belt is an excellent introduction to Lean Six Sigma.

Here are 3 reasons to consider a Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt certification:

cost and time efficient
1. It’s a time and cost-efficient way to begin making improvements and savings

At just 2 days, Yellow Belt is our shortest Lean Six Sigma Course.

With our practical approach, you will cover a lot of ground during that time, coming away with skills and knowledge you can begin using immediately.

Our Yellow Belt training is priced at €349, which includes your certification.

recognised certification
2. You’ll gain a recognised certification

If you’re looking to get a Lean Six Sigma credential on your CV, achieving a Yellow Belt gets you started quickly.

Green and Black Belts can take a little longer to achieve. You will gain your Yellow Belt certificate following Day 2 of training.

plan next steps
3. It can help you plan your next steps

We find that our Yellow Belt course is popular with those who are curious about Lean Six Sigma, but are unsure of how much detail they want to go into with it.

Completing our 2-day course provides participants with a good foundation in process improvement techniques.

Many of our students want more following Yellow Belt. In these cases, our Green Belt and Black Belt courses are a natural progression.

Some participants find that the Yellow Belt alone is sufficient for their process improvement needs.

We recommend Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt for anyone who is interested in improving how things are done in their workplace.

We welcome students from a broad spectrum of backgrounds on our courses.

  • no experience is needed
  • it is suitable for participants from all industries
  • the skills and knowledge you gain can be applied to many different situations
