Six Sigma Green Belt training covers many of the aspects of Six Sigma that are important in program implementation. After successfully completing the training, Green Belts will be able to use their skills along with Black Belts to assess a situation and methodically work to solve the trouble spots with the aim of reducing standard deviation to 3.4 parts per million. Six Sigma Green Belt training usually involves a few intense classroom periods, often interrupted by hands-on workplace experience.

Most Green Belt candidates receive their training from Six Sigma firms or schools. Six Sigma schools such as the Six Sigma Academy offer Green Belt candidates an environment that is dedicated to the Six Sigma methodology. Green Belts often have regular access to Black Belts and Master Black Belts, who are experienced trainers and practitioners, and can answer any questions that may surface during Six Sigma Green Belt training.

Six Sigma Green Belt Training at a Firm

Six Sigma firms offer a slightly different brand of training. Many firms offer customized programs, with onsite training and a classroom experiments that reflect the candidates' actual workplace environment. There may also be a period of application and experimentation built into the training program, where Green Belt candidates can put their new skills to practical use under the supervision of a Black Belt or Master Black Belt.

Green Belt training usually covers most of the basics of Six Sigma program design, with a focus on data collection and analysis, which lies at the core of Six Sigma. Candidates learn techniques such as DoE, FMEA, (Design of Experiments and Failure Measurement and Effects Analysis) and capability tools. They will also receive instruction on how to use various Six Sigma software aids and statistical tools.
