Why take this course?
This course is accredited by The Royal Statistical Society. It is suitable for anyone who is responsible for their own products, is a key member of a Six Sigma Black Belt team or simply seeks a solid understanding of the key concepts of Six Sigma and how they can benefit an organization.
You’ll be shown how to identify and implement solutions, how to apply benchmarking techniques and how to identify and select appropriate data sources. The Advanced modules focus on applying the principles and knowledge covered in the Foundation modules, including problem-solving and root cause analysis. They also cover full factorial design and the Taguchi methodology.
‘Six Sigma Green Belt Advanced’ follows on from Six Sigma Green Belt Foundation. If you are new to Six Sigma Green Belt and would just like to start with the basics, you should first complete the Foundation course before moving forward.
Students who take this course will learn:
The history and meaning of Six Sigma
How to establish customer needs and measure performance
How to use analytics, mathematical models and design techniques relevant to Six Sigma
How to apply the principles and strategies for problem-solving and root cause analysis
A solid understanding of Six Sigma concepts

Uniquely, the Good eLearning Green Belt training program is focused on helping to prepare users to not just understand and apply Six Sigma, but also to help them towards becoming qualified under the global ISO standard for Lean & Six Sigma, ISO 18404
Module 1: Introduction to Six Sigma, Quality and Standards
This module introduces you to the meaning and use of the Six Sigma approach, the underlying concept of variation, the relationships to related Quality Management approaches, basic Six Sigma tools, international ISO standards for Six Sigma, and the nature of Six Sigma improvement projects.
Module 2: Defining the Project Mission
This module will focus on creativity and creativity tools that can be used in coming up with creative formulations and solutions in (Lean) Six Sigma improvement projects.
In the various stages of DMAIC it is important to think `outside of the box`, rather than thinking in the same old way, with the same constraints. We need creative solutions.
Module 3: Project Reviews and Management
This module concentrates on the review and management of Six Sigma projects.
Project management is a very big subject. It provides concepts, tools and techniques to manage relatively small projects, such as Six Sigma projects, through to mega projects like sending men to Mars.
You should use these concepts and tools to a depth suited to your particular project. In this module we will explore the basic concepts and tools of project management, and recognize their application to Six Sigma projects.
Module 4: Introduction to Statistics and Excel
This module concentrates on Statistical techniques for summarizing data, and makes extensive use of Microsoft Excel. It assumes no previous knowledge of Excel.
If you are already familiar with Excel, you may find some of the explanations unnecessary and you will get through this module more quickly than others.
Module 5: Statistical Process Control (SPC)
This module concentrates on Statistical Process Control. This is one of the most powerful and frequently used tools in Six Sigma projects.
Module 6: Root Cause Analysis
This module looks at identifying root causes in order to solve problems and make our processes, products and services more consistent.
Module 7: Bench-marking
This module creates an understanding of Bench-marking, and shows you how to identify and select appropriate sources of data. It also shows you how to avoid the common pitfalls of bench-marking.
Module 8: Introduction to Design of Experiments (DoE)
This module looks at choices in experimental design, and the Taguchi methodology.
Exams / Assessments
The Six Sigma Green Belt Advanced (Level 1 & 2) course is assessed via several short end-of-module quizzes, interactive exercises and the submission of a work project to your Six Sigma Tutor.
