Location: Rochester Institute of Technology

CQAS’s Green Belt training program is designed for working professionals with little or no prior experience in Lean Six Sigma.  You will learn tools and methods for improving processes and how to apply them to projects within your organization that generate significant cost savings, greater efficiencies, and higher customer satisfaction.  Important tools will be introduced to clearly define a business problem, gather and analyze data, and implement improvements that can be sustained.   

Green Belt training is offered on the RIT campus (“open” enrollment) and on a contract basis to client organizations, either onsite or in a blended format comprised of both onsite and online components. The on-campus program is delivered one day each week for twelve consecutive weeks. It is led by an expert Lean Six Sigma instructor, and you will be exposed to each topic in depth through classroom assignments, structured exercises within a team environment, and application of tools to your own project.

CQAS’s Green Belt program is unique:

  • Projects are integrated into the training so that you actively apply tools and concepts directly to your own project. The project will continue beyond the training and generate significant benefits to your organization, exponentially higher than the cost of training. Each project is mentored by a Lean Six Sigma expert from CQAS, and support continues through project completion.
  • Designed to meet the needs of all business sectors such as healthcare, services, manufacturing, education, and government  Emphasis is placed on tailoring learning to each student’s needs, while participant diversity provides opportunities to learn from one another.
  • Emphasis goes beyond coverage of Lean Six Sigma tools to leadership and change management essential to driving a culture of performance excellence.  Immersion and practice ensures that CQAS Green Belts lives Lean Six Sigma methods and tools on a daily basis.
  • Spread out over 12 weeks to facilitate project integration and applied learning. Project reviews offer direct feedback on each project.
  • Active management participation, including manager/sponsor training before the program.
  • Instructors have deep expertise in their fields and work with you not only during the program but through completion of your project.  CQAS is part of a major university and leverages expert and experienced faculty, Master Black Belts, and other professionals who are teachers, consultants, real-world problem solvers, respected speakers, and authors.
