Black Belt Program

CQAS’s Black Belt training program is a keystone element of the Lean Six Sigma program and builds upon the lessons learned through the prerequisite Green Belt training program. Each participant is required to complete a Black Belt project that will continue beyond the training timeframe and directly benefit their organization. On average, Black Belt projects have returned $50,000 or more in value to participants’ sponsoring organizations and have provided immediate return-on-investment that is exponentially higher than the cost of the training program.  The program is offered both on the RIT campus (“open” enrollment) and on a contract basis for client organizations.
