The Smarter Solutions Online Yellow Belt training class is intended to be an entry level Lean Six Sigma course that will prepare the student to work with a DMAIC improvement team efforts within their current business organization. This course is not a prerequisite for Lean Six Sigma Black Belt or Lean Six Sigma Green Belt training, but is a full stand-alone class. No prior Lean Six Sigma experience or statistical knowledge is required to successfully complete this course.
The primary differences between the Blended Online Yellow Belt and the Blended Online Green and Black Belt courses involve a reduction in the depth of the analysis tools. This course covers the basic DMAIC process and information on basic qualitative analysis methods.
In a mature and successful Lean Six Sigma program, Yellow Belts are supported by an experienced Black Belt or Master Black Belt to assist them in complex data analysis and with their interactions with other internal and external business organizations.
