Green Belt training is for Yellow Belts who are looking to co-lead/lead a continuous improvement initiative and therefore, require more ‘depth and texture’ in terms of the DMAIC process roadmap and tools used.
LC-YB is a prerequisite for Green Belts.

 
The Green Belt (Practitioner level) course is three days practical hands-on training. Three follow up sessions (two hours each) plus a final certification session (three to four hours) are all included as part of the development process.

The assignment builds throughout the module and includes leading/co-leading a real, live LC initiative on your construction project, (or in your business). Your assignment will result in measureable, tangible value improvements or savings, typically in the region of $50k.

The training includes a pre-reading list and handouts of all the slides used plus certification.

Candidates will receive a LC-GB Practitioner certificate for attending the three days and demonstrating evidence in their assignment that they have co-led or led a project to completion and are proficient in the tools they have used.
