About the course

In today’s competitive business environment, many companies have implemented a Six Sigma program to enable continuous improvement of their products and processes using very structured and quantitative methods. Six Sigma Black Belts are asked to continuously manage and improve these projects through their extensive knowledge of Six Sigma tools and methodologies. The Six Sigma Black Belt Certificate Program is a 12-week online program designed for experienced practitioners who wish to develop the critical skills required for a black belt certificate. This includes training in statistical analysis, financial analysis, problem solving and project management. During the program you will work on a project that will provide you with an opportunity to utilize these new skills. The Six Sigma Black Belt Certificate provides a solid foundation for those who plan to take the American Society for Quality (ASQ) Certified Six Sigma Black Belt certification exam and earn the designation of ASQ Certified Six Sigma Black Belt (CSSBB).
