The Six Sigma Specialist program helps professionals to strengthen organizations by employing the core concepts of Six Sigma geared toward enhanced problem-solving skills with an emphasis on the DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, and Control) model. The Six Sigma Specialist program presents an overview of the key concepts for the Six Sigma Green Belt Certification exam. Students will explore processes and team management, operational metrics, and key tools and techniques to achieve process excellence. This program is designed to prepare students to sit for the Six Sigma Green Belt Certification exam offered by the American Association for Quality.
Six Sigma Specialists are tasked with supporting the project lead, most likely a Six Sigma Black Belt and provides a stepping stone to this advanced classification as well. Successful participants in this class will be poised to work on small, defined Six Sigma projects within an organization, requiring less oversight by the assigned manager (presumably a Six Sigma Black Belt). This ability to free up supervisory time reduces costs and increases productivity for entire projects, which presents significant value to both current and prospective employers. Whether in healthcare, finance, government, manufacturing or any other industry, Six Sigma Green Belt training is ideal for current professionals looking toward advancement in their current position as well as individuals looking to gain employment with any firm that utilizes these concepts and techniques.
