Who it’s for

Yellow Belts are people at the grass root level in the organisation, i.e. shop-floor employees or supervisors, those that play a vital role in bringing cultural change in an organisation and sustaining it on a long-term basis. A Yellow Belt typically has a basic knowledge of Lean Six Sigma but will not lead projects on their own.

The Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt course is for people who are going to be involved in a Six Sigma project as a team member, assisting Black Belts and Green Belts executing sponsored projects. The Yellow Belt collects data, participates in problem solving exercises and adds their personal experiences in resolving the complex problems in organizations.

No prior knowledge of Lean Six Sigma is required for attending this course.

We also offer a combined programme where you can study for the Yellow Belt before progressing to the more advanced Green Belt level.
