Six Sigma is acknowledged as one of the most powerful methodologies available to enhance enterprise performance. Six Sigma drives customer satisfaction and bottom line profit improvement by reducing variation and eliminating Lean waste, thereby continually improving organisations' competitive position.

The Green Belt program will provide you with the necessary skills and knowledge to achieve improvement project outcomes within your organisation. Green Belts are often referred to as the engine room of Six Sigma projects. They are usually assigned specific improvement projects, within the scope of their normal day-to-day duties that require an intermediate level of applied statistical analysis.

UniSA's Six Sigma courses are aligned to the American Society for Quality (ASQ) standards. ASQ is the world’s leading member organisation devoted to quality and productivity improvement and is a global benchmark in Six Sigma Certification and Qualification.

What others are saying

"I found the course an excellent, well-paced series of modules to acquire an in-depth understanding of the SSBB Body of Knowledge and the skills to apply it effectively. The course incorporates numerous case studies and tutorial problems to solve in an interactive, classroom environment. I would highly recommend this course, it is comprehensive, recognised internationally and has the credibility that sets it apart from other shorter courses."
