Smarter Solutions offers a four-week Lean Six Sigma Black Belt course in Austin, Texas, Toronto, Canada, and is available at your location or locale upon request. The training provides an environment that is excellent for effective adult education, application, and learning.

We have built our Lean Six Sigma black belt training and certification material to cover all areas of the business; manufacturing, transactional/service, and research and development industries. Smarter Solutions has leveraged its 20+ years of business to develop training materials that primarily use data sets and exercises that derive from real business issues and problems. We incorporate nearly every modality of training, such as exercises, examples, homework, mini-projects, videos, reading, and lecture to ensure that we reach all of our student learners. All of the Smarter Solutions instructors have a minimum of 8 years of Lean Six Sigma training as a Master Black Belt along with many more years as an improvement practitioner.  The implication of this is that our Lean Six Sigma Black Belt trainers can rapidly understand the student’s issues and provide targeted coaching and feedback.

As you would expect, we cover the complete Define-Measure-Analyze-Improve-Control roadmap (i.e., DMAIC roadmap) and more! Our course content is built from and taught in conjunction with a reference text, Integrated Enterprise Excellence Volume III, written by the founder of Smarter Solutions, Forrest Breyfogle.

Who Should Attend Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Training and Certification:

This Lean Six Sigma training and certification is designed for business professionals or companies who desire a strong foundation in Lean Six Sigma and general process improvement. No prior Lean Six Sigma training is required.


Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Certification is granted by Smarter Solutions after a successful completion of the course and all of the associated homework and in-class projects in conjunction with the successful completion of an independent improvement project using the IEE Project DMAIC roadmap that is taught during the course. There is no specific monetary requirement for the project savings, but it is required to demonstrate a “significant” performance change that is valued by the company. Smarter Solutions provides individual coaching from a Master Black Belt for each student during their independent project that supports the learning and provides guidance in the project execution. This option is included in the full course price and can be added to the basic course with a minimal charge.
