"The program really challenged me to look at our organization from a different point of view.  One would think that the tools that were developed for manufacturing would not be transferrable to healthcare or services, but I would say that is far from the truth.  It is the thinking behind the tools that has benefitted our organization the most along with the support that the instructors give to you."

 “I was impressed by the instructors and their knowledge”

“Taught me to think outside the box, and look for creative/alternative solutions”

“The instructor is engaging, easy to listen to”

“The instructor used a lot of real-life examples that ranged across all areas. I really appreciate that”

“Instructor was excellent; he kept things moving and made things easy to understand”

“Overall, the program was excellent! I really enjoyed it!”

Green Belt Program

The RIT CQAS Green Belt training program is the entry level program of the Lean Six Sigma training program that includes active management participation, twelve (12) day Green Belt training, Green Belt project and certification. There is no prerequisite for entry into our Green Belt program.

The Green Belt training program is presented one day a week for consecutive twelve weeks. This program is led by a Lean Six Sigma expert instructor and will involve participants in extensive interactive training. Participants are also exposed in depth to each topic through classroom assignments and structured exercises within team environments.

Each Green Belt training program participant is required to complete a project of significant value to their organization. These projects require the completion of a Project Charter that describes the project, details the objectives, lists the project’s team members, and includes an estimate of all project costs and a comprehensive project timeline. The Project Charter must be approved by both the organization’s management as well as RIT CQAS. During the training period the participants will present Project progress reports. Pairs of participants from the same organization may be involved with the same project.

The program's key subjects include:

  • Six Sigma & Lean Enterprise Approach to Improvement
  • Change
  • 5-S and Visual Controls
  • Cost of Quality
  • Team Building & Leadership
  • VSM (Value Stream Mapping), Current State
  • Standard Work
  • Solving Process & Tools
  • Cause-Effect Matrix
  • FMEA (Failure Mode and Effects Analysis)
  • Statistical Thinking
  • Sampling Issues
  • Basic Statistics
  • Components of Variance
  • Measurement Systems Analysis
  • Correlation & Regression Analysis
  • Capability Analysis
  • Control Plans
  • SPC & Control Charts
  • Design of Experiments – Introduction
  • T-tests
  • Line and Cell Design
  • Kaizen Event Training
  • Setup Reduction
  • Total Productive Maintenance (TPM)
  • Kanban

The RIT CQAS Green Belt program provides in-depth data analysis tools and processes to fully implement the Lean Six Sigma problem solving process that generates superior data driven solutions, productive yields and dramatically improved bottom-line results.

Our Green Belt program is also available as a contract onsite program held at your organization.
