Lean Six Sigma Black Belt

Blended Learning Program

Course Description

Lean Six Sigma (LSS) is a disciplined process improvement approach focused on reducing waste, increasing

customer satisfaction, and reducing variability for improved profits…among many other benefits.

Black Belts act as both statistical consultants and team leaders for the project. They work with a Champion to select the right project and they are accountable for the results. Their responsibilities include deploying effective control plans to ensure gains are sustained, and communicating results to leverage gains within and among organizations. They also help train other employees.

The LSS Black Belt course prepares people to become expert Lean Six Sigma practitioners and equips them to lead complex projects by blending the tools of Lean with the rigorous DMAIC problem-solving methodology and advanced statistical toolset.

Blended Learning

FLEXIBLE: Class sessions can be 100% online or augmented with live classroom instruction.

FAST: Self-paced online learning and up to

50% less class time.

EFFECTIVE: Interactive modules and project simulations accelerate and cement learning.

ON-THE-JOB SUPPORT: Modules provide a quick-access job aid, as needed, when project challenges arise.


At the Black Belt level, certification recognizes understanding and ability to apply Lean Six Sigma knowledge.

Certification is earned from TQG Master Champions, Academic Partners, or Distribution Partners.


• A grade of 80% on e-Learning modules

• A passing grade of 80% on a final exam

• Active participation in all class sessions

• Successful completion of Capstone Project

• Complete a project and successfully present the project to

the Instructor and Master Black Belt.
