Green Belt Program

CQAS's Green Belt training program is the entry level Lean Six Sigma program that includes active management participation, twelve (12) days of Green Belt training, a Green Belt project and certification. There is no prerequisite for entry into our Green Belt program. It is offered both on the RIT campus (“open” enrollment) and on a contract basis at client organizations 

The "open” Green Belt program is delivered one day each week for twelve consecutive weeks. The program is led by a Lean Six Sigma expert instructor and will engage participants in extensive interactive training. Participants are exposed to each topic in depth through classroom assignments and structured exercises within a team environment.

Each participant is required to complete a project of significant value to their organization. Each project requires the completion of a Project Charter that describes objectives, team members, and project costs and timeline. The Project Charter must be approved by both the organization’s management as well as CQAS. During the training program, participants will present progress reports. Pairs of participants from the same organization may work on the same project.

This customized program covers all the same tools and topics but is delivered using a blended learning approach with standard classroom hours supplemented by online project reviews and self-paced online content.
