Yellow Belt Training

Yellow Belts usually manage projects of smaller scope with shorted expected completion times. More often they are on a team with other Yellow, White, or Green Belts that is led by a Green Belt or Black Belt. 

Yellow Belts have the ability to identify waste and "see" the hidden factory losses. They elevate the opportunity to become a project or implement process management changes to fix the problem as part of their regular job. 

Certifications programs are less rigorous than the Green Belt or Black Belt program but usually include:

  • 2-3 days of training with cost ranging from $250-$750
  • Participation in at least one Six Sigma project
  • Evidence using project management tools
  • Evidence showing basic application of statistics
  • Evidence of understanding the Lean principles
  • Written examination

This site has 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.
