Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Certification is becoming a must have for potential employers and clients as this shows that you can apply these improvement methodologies and haven’t just read a few books.
The global recession is set to be with us for the next few years and one sector, more than any other is set to be in great demand – Improvement professionals. Businesses need to remove costs from their operations to remain viable. They need to increase profitability and productivity, remove waste and variation from their processes in order to stay in business.
How will they do this? by employing Lean and Six Sigma (Lean Sigma) methodologies as part of business as usual. These skills are in great demand and there are a lot of experienced Lean Sigma professionals out there. The only way to ensure you get to the front of the queue and to the top of the earnings ladder is to become a Certified Lean Sigma Black Belt.
The easiest and least expensive way to do this is by taking an ‘on-line’ Lean Sigma Certification course.
Now some of these ‘on-line’ offerings will simply get you to read a very thick book and take some tests.
However, our on-line course that is not only very cost effective (under $1,000) but also supplies you with all the course material in Powerpoint format (you can then copy this directly onto your own slide template and use it in your (or your clients) organisation within minutes !
Who are we ?
The company is Beyondlean Ltd.
A registered Lean Six Sigma Training and consultancy based in the UK.
We have trained over 500 people in Lean Six Sigma methodologies in the last three years alone.
Our on-line Lean Six Sigma certification courses are overseen by our own in house Lean Six Sigma Master Black Belt, who is also available for limited e-mail support, should you find yourself in need of it. (although this course is designed for you to learn to solve problems for yourself!)
This Lean Sigma Certification Course is 100% on-line (although the word ‘on-line’ will not appear on your certificate). The course covers the Body of Knowledge of six sigma and lean manufacturing concepts in the PDCA model, integrated to deliver maximum results, which will enable you to immediately participate and lead others in lean sigma projects. You will be certified by Beyondlean Limited who are a registered Lean Sigma Training and Consultancy company in the UK, with a team of Master Black Belts also available for on-site training, certification and consultancy.
There are many advantages to an on-line course. The primary advantages are that the material will be learned to a greater depth, specific modules can be reviewed until learned, and questions are handled on a one-on-one basis with a Master Black Belt.
Our Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Certification course includes over 50 modules based on the DMAIC (Define-Measure-Analyze-Improve-Control) and PDCA (Plan-Do-Check-Act) models. At the end of the course an exam is given to test that sufficient knowledge has been obtained to operate successfully as a Black Belt. The candidate may re-take any part of the test until a 70% score is obtained. The candidate will also complete one full Lean Sigma project utilising the tools learned and following the two models. Upon successful completion of the exam and project, the Black Belt Certification is awarded to the candidate. Although there is no education requirement to take the course, it is recommended for individuals with at least average basic math skills although, it is more important for a Black Belt to understand the basic concepts, than to be a statistical genius.
One of the most important tools for any Certified Black Belt is access to ready to use training and presentation materials. Many ‘on-line’ Certification programs will simply take your money, get you to read a very thick book and take a series of exams, followed by a project summary. After this, you will receive your certificate. All well and good, until you need to go out and put all this into practice. This course comes complete with all the material you study in powerpoint format ready to download and use to train your own Green belts or present the concepts to stakeholders within your clients business.
Our course content is available 100% on-line AND all course materials can be downloaded to be studied at your leisure. (All modules will be distributed with one user licence, so that you can transfer all content onto your own company slide template for immediate use).
Choosing the BEST Lean Sigma Training Provider for YOU
A simple Google search will quickly reveal just how many choices there really are in the Lean Sigma marketplace. With so many choices to pick from and with each one screaming “pick me…pick me”, which one should you trust with the future of your company. Whether you are looking for a consultant or an on-line training provider, the same basic rules apply:
Make it fit your budget
Lean Sigma training and certification can go from hundreds to tens of thousands of pounds. Let’s face facts, whether you’re choosing the most expensive or the least expensive training provider… you will still learn the basic principles of Lean Sigma. Remember, whether you own a Ferrari or take the bus, you will undoubtedly be moving closer to your goal.
Will they just train you or will they train AND certify you?
Many training providers are just that… TRAINING providers. In a job market that treats you as “expendable”; it’s a safe bet to go with someone that offers certification.
Consultant or on-line Training?
In today’s fast-paced world classroom-based instruction is becoming extinct quicker than the Dodo. on-line training is a must for any busy professional. But are they better than a consultant? Is reading a Spanish dictionary better than going to Spain? Having the direct communication with a consultant definitely has its advantages. Does it justify the £6,000+ cost difference? Many market trends are indicating a serious decline in consultant training. Many organisations today are more than eager to reduce the risk of any losses that could occur. But with the advent of the internet, the learning gap certainly does not seem to justify the price gap.
Our Black Belt course covers all the essential elements needed to get you through the examination and onwards to certification, without compromising on quality or contents, modules covered include:
