Training accredited by Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth:

Professional certification is a process in which a person proves that he or she has the knowledge, as a basis, for performing a specific job. The proof comes in the form of a certification earned by passing quizzes, an exam, case studies, actual case or some combination of these items that are provided by an accredited organization. Accreditation is recognition that an educational institution has a certain standard of quality that other reputable organizations will honor. Without accreditation the certification provider may not provide the participant lasting value. Therefore, it is imperative that you receive your certification from a trusted, accredited institution. Dartmouth College, founded in 1769, is accredited by the Commission on Institutions of Higher Education (CIHE) of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC). Accreditation is a non-governmental, non-profit, self-regulatory, peer review process based on rigorous standards.

Workshop Schedule:

*10 – (4-hour sessions); (2 sessions per week for 5 weeks), sessions run 10:00 am to 2:00 PM Eastern Time (approximately 40 hours of training) plus you must do one LSS case study, (approximately 40 hours homework). Please review the PDF for the Schedule options: Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Schedule

Those individuals who can use basic statistics to assist a project team. This hands-on workshop is designed for Lean Six Sigma project team members.

Participants are expected to have basic algebra capability. Yellow belt certification is not a requirement.

Students are highly recommended to have a copy of the Green Belt Course Manual, in either Paper or PDF copy, to use as reference.

Students will be provided with a PDF of the class materials.

All sessions are recorded, placed in a dropbox, and provided to participants for download to a computer in the event of a missed class or for review in the future.

Students must choose one case study (from manufacturing, financial, or healthcare) and complete it within 10 days of the last class (approx. 40 hours of homework). You will receive all case studies before the workshop begins, and will work on it over the duration of the training.

Minitab is used in this workshop. Minitab is available for free 30-day trial and must be run on a Windows PC.

A headset with microphone is required, as using built-in speakers/microphone causes echo issues. Headsets give participants complete interaction with the instructor and other students.

Exam Information: This take home exam is required. You must show your own original work on the exam and must work independently. Contact the instructor for help and guidance; do not contact other participants. You must complete the exam and email it to the instructor within 5 business days of the last session on day 10. Those who do not return the exam within 5 business days will not be eligible for the LSS Green Belt Certificate (NO EXCEPTIONS).

This is an open notes exam so you can use all of the material that the instructors have provided to you. The exam will be primarily question and answer format with some of the math that you have learned during the course. The exam should be completed in 8 to 12 hours. It is a pass/fail exam.

Dartmouth College, Thayer School of Engineering, will issue a certificate of completion, in PDF format, to participants who successfully complete the case study and pass the take home quiz.
