One of the reasons that organisations find that their Continuous Improvement Program is faltering and losing momentum is that their Green Belts have lapsed in leading and practicing the core skills and key tools involved in Lean Six Sigma projects.

This unique refresher course seeks to revitalise and reboot an organisations existing resource pool rather than continuing to train new practitioners. The course gives these Green Belts the opportunity to reacquaint themselves with the key DMAIC tools and mindset with hands-on workshops, working on live problems.

The course content is based on the key tools presented SQT’s current QQI Accredited Green Belt Programme (Special Purpose Award – Level 7). The learning outcomes will be assessed based on a combination of a 30 Question MCQ (Multiple Choice Questions) and the submission of teamwork for a given problem identified and agreed at or before the training commences.

The course is currently available In-Company programme, 2 days on-site or 4 half days for virtual delivery.
