The 12-month Six Sigma and Productivity Management Program (SSP) provides students with the practical training needed to become qualified, proficient quality improvement practitioners. Students initially gain their Yellow Belt certification before proceeding through to Black Belt certification.
The program is intense as it drives students to develop the practical and critical skills they need to successfully complete process improvement projects in their respective organizations. This program provides students with the practical training needed to drive organizational change and productivity improvement from the very start of the training process.
Incoming students are assumed to have an interest but no formal background in productivity improvement, and are taken from the introductory courses in the Lean Six Sigma methodology to an initial certification as Six Sigma Yellow Belts. Further training will prepare students for certification as Green Belts and eventually as Black Belts.
Students who wish to pursue a career in Six Sigma management and training may advance to become Master Black Belts under the guidance of the program faculty. Furthermore, students may also opt for additional preparation to sit for the PMP certification, offered by the Project Management Institute.
