This online course is offered live with Voice Over IP (VoIP) audio technology. Facilitated by Six Sigma eLearning Inc. (SSEL), this course is similar to a self-paced class but is instructor-led. You will work with the instructor to schedule sessions that accommodate your needs. You are expected to participate in a demo session using VoIP equipment to ensure computer controls work properly online and to determine the dates and times of subsequent sessions. You will be provided with purchase and specs for the type of VoIP equipment best suited for your computer. The course normally meets once a week for 10 weeks.
To earn the Black Belt, participants must pass the IIE Black Belt Exam (included in course fee) and successfully complete the Black Belt project.
Learn the advanced problem-solving skills you need to implement the principles, practices and techniques of Six Sigma to maximize performance and cost reductions in your organization. During this ten-week practitioner course, you will learn how to measure a process, analyze the results, develop process improvements and quantify the resulting savings. You will be required to complete a project demonstrating mastery of appropriate analytical methods and pass an examination to earn IIE’s Six Sigma Black Belt Certificate.This practitioner course for Six Sigma implementation provides extensive coverage of the Six Sigma process as well as intensive exposure to the key analytical tools associated with Six Sigma, including project management, team skills, cost analysis, FMEA, basic statistics, inferential statistics, sampling, goodness of fit testing, regression and correlation analysis, reliability, design of experiments, statistical process control, measurement systems analysis and simulation. Computer applications are emphasized.
IIE’s Six Sigma Black Belt course has been evaluated and recommended for graduate semester credits by the American Council on Education (ACE). Students can earn up to six semester hours in graduate credit at the discretion of each student’s college or university. ACE recommends that the IIE course is equivalent to three semester hours in statistics for quality assurance and three hours in statistical process or design of experiments.
