Financial details

Training costs


The path to becoming certified as a Black Belt according to the ISO 18404 standards requires you to complete both a theory training and an in-field Lean Six Sigma project. The theory training takes place over the course of multiple days and is supported by a full digital suite of preparation materials. For the project you will receive coaching and project review from an experienced Lean Six Sigma expert.

If circumstances do not allow for a project during the same timeframe as the theory training, it is possible to start with theory only and to move on to your project at a later point in time.

Frequently asked questions

Can I register and join a training without any prior experience or knowledge of Lean Six Sigma?

Every training we provide assumes our students start the training without any understanding of the Lean Six Sigma methodology. It starts with the fundamentals and explains every topic that is mentioned without assuming prior experience. During the training, you will carry out simulations and exercises to help you develop your knowledge. If you choose to carry out a project as part of your training, you will be coached and assisted by one of the (Master) Black Belts of The Lean Six Sigma Company to help you get started.

Who should attend the Black Belt Course

Any individual that wants to become an expert and master the Lean Six Sigma skills to work on more complex projects relating to cycle time, cost savings, errors and defect reduction and customer experience improvements

Is a Lean Six Sigma training relevant to my career phase?

Lean Six Sigma is a methodology that one can start using during any career phase and this training is the ideal starting point. Even as a beginner, your work can add tremendous value. Lean Six Sigma can serve as an addition to your current work, replacing a part of your existing responsibilities. Or it can become a new full-time career, depending on the training you choose.


How does the ‘Services’ training differ from the ‘Manufacturing’ training?

The Services training is most fitting for those employed in transactional careers such as general administration, logistics, finance, etc. The ‘Manufacturing’ training is most fitting for those involved with mass production, machinery, factories and automation). While the Of course, those who complete the Manufacturing training can still carry out projects in the aforementioned transactional fields.

I find statistics a daunting topic, is a Lean Six Sigma training still for me?

The Green Belt training has very little statistics content, as opposed to our Black Belt course. Yet even the Black Belt courses have designed to start at the very basics, on the assumption that our students aren’t familiar with anything related to statistics. We realize the idea of working with statistics can sound somewhat intimidating, but our trainers have helped thousands of students understand (and find their interest in) statistics. Additionally, we offer complementary courses and several videos on our MyTraining™ platform that will help you prepare for, or repeat, specific exercises.

Do you offer training in other languages?

More information about our worldwide presence can be found on our worldmap page, here you will find in which countries we are currently active and offer training.

Green Belt vs Black Belt

The main difference is the scope of your projects. Green Belt projects are usually aimed at solving issues that affect a small part of a single department. Black Belt projects tend to tackle long-standing, complex issues that cross departmental lines. The responsibilities of a Green Belt align with those of a project manager. Black Belts carry more responsibilities and take a more active, leading role where they direct other Green Belts during projects.
