If you want to not only earn the title of “Lean Six Sigma Green Belt” but also work as a project leader on improvement projects in your workplace, then sign up for our practical course!
Focus on applying the knowledge
Our Lean Six Sigma Green Belt program combines theory and practice perfectly. We won’t lock you up in a classroom for days going through all the theory. Instead, we provide you with all the tools to learn the theory on your own so that you can make the most of the knowledge and experience of our trainers during the training days. You’ll work with them to deepen your practical skills. This way, you can be sure that you can start working as a Lean Six Sigma Green Belt right after the program. And if there’s any uncertainty after the training, you can simply log into the E-Learning platform, which you can use unlimitedly for a year.
During the training days, you’ll work on your practical assignment, which involves directly improving your organization or work environment. With the guidance of the trainer, you’ll gradually put the theory into practice. This increases the learning outcomes of the Lean Green Belt program, and you’ll immediately earn back the investment in your education. It’s a classic win-win situation.
You can complete the full program, including practical certification, within 4-5 months, but you can also finish it faster.

We’ve divided the Lean Six Sigma Green Belt program into 3 categories to explain it to you as clearly as possible. If you have any specific questions about the content, please contact us at 020-3453015.
The theory of the Lean Six Sigma Green Belt
After your registration, we will provide you with login details for the E-Learning environment. Here, you can learn all the theory at your own pace, as many times as you want! Before each lesson day, your trainer(s) will inform you which theory you should have covered. This is crucial to maximize your learning during the practical lesson days that follow. The access to the E-Learning is valid for one year, so you can always refer back to it whenever you need to.
During the Lean Six Sigma Green Belt program, you will attend 6 practical lesson days. These days start at 9:00 am and end around 5:00 pm. The practical lesson days are focused on applying the theory you have learned. You will have the opportunity to ask questions, but then we will quickly move on to show you how to use this knowledge to make a real impact. We provide trainers who have practical experience applying the theory in different sectors and for different companies. They are experts at making the theory applicable to your specific situation.
On the last lesson day, you will take the theory exam. After successfully passing the exam, you will receive the theory certificate as proof of your knowledge.
During the course, you will develop a plan for an improvement project within your organization. After completing the course, you will implement this project, which will be evaluated by your coach. The purpose of this evaluation is to provide you with a practical certification, which demonstrates your ability to apply the theory in practice.

Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Certification
The Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Certification consists of 2 parts; a theory certificate and a practical certificate. The theory certification is included in the training. The practical certification is the real crown jewel of the training. While the theory certificate proves that you have absorbed the knowledge and can repeat it, the practical certification proves that you can actually apply what you have learned in practice. This provides proof that you understand the knowledge and possess the change management skills to actually achieve results on the work floor. The practical certification is included in the cost of the training.
Experience shows that the success of the practical certification is increased when coaching is used during the execution of the practical assignment. During coaching, the coach helps to shape, execute, and complete the practical assignments according to the applicable guidelines. This increases the success of the certification, and generally improves the results of the improvement initiative.
Coaching is available in packages of 4 hours. The cost for 4 hours of coaching is € 800, excluding VAT. Generally, we recommend 8 hours of coaching per improvement initiative.
The investment in the 6 day Green Belt training is € 4.095,-. This investment includes:
