Six Sigma Green Belt (SSGB) Certification


Green Belts focus on principles of variation reduction, Lean Manufacturing and have a basic understanding of statistical analysis. Their goal are both shifting the performance to a desired target and reducing the variation of a process.

They typically support Black Belts and are not always employed as full-time Green Belts. Green Belts often have a full-time role in the company and participate in Six Sigma projects as directed. However, Green Belts can lead their own teams and have a Black Belt serve as a mentor.

Typical Green Belt (GB) certification requirements

GB certifications programs are less rigorous than the Black Belt program but usually include:

  • 40 hrs – 160 hrs of coursework
  • Participation in at least one Six Sigma project
  • Mentoring of other Green Belts, White Belts, or Yellow Belts
  • Evidence using project management tools
  • Evidence showing basic application of statistics
  • Evidence of understanding the Lean principles
  • Written examination

There are also over 100 example certification problems available for subscribers of this site. Many of the problems have further explanations along with additional developmental material that can be found within this site.

GB's should possess an understanding of basic statistics and hypothesis testing.
