Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt Certificate Program

Organization: Lean Training Online

Created by: Darren Dolcemascolo


Our self-paced online Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt program covers all of the topics our classroom version covers.  The format includes audio-visual presentation, case studies / readings, and test completion.  And, like our classroom version, students will have the ability to contact the instructor with questions and requests for feedback on ideas and case exercises..  Students will also be able to contact each other with questions/ideas via an online forum.  The program is self-paced and up to 6 months are allotted to complete it; students will have access to the program for 1 year.  Upon completion of the program (including a final test), students will receive a certificate (Certified Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt) and 2 CEU's (Continuing Education Units).

This course does not include a license for SigmaXL statistical software.  The software is referenced in 2 modules within the course but is NOT required.  Statistical Analysis is not covered in the Yellow Belt body of knowledge, and special software is not required.
