Six Sigma Yellow Belt (SSYB) Training

Six Sigma YELLOW BELT Training

Yellow Belts usually manage projects of smaller scope with shortened expected completion times. They also participate on teams led by a Green Belt or Black Belt and there may be several Yellow Belts and/or Green Belts on a team.

Yellow Belts learn to identify wastes and "see" the hidden factory losses. They are also expected to a have a basic understanding of statistical tools but usually do not get involved in hypothesis testing or DOE's.

Yellow Belts often are not full-time jobs within an organization but rather often used to support GB/BB's on Six Sigma projects and hold other full time jobs and expected to use the Six Sigma and Lean principles in their regular full time job. 

Typical Yellow Belt Certification Requirements

Certificate programs are less rigorous than Green Belt or Black Belt programs and usually consist of the following: 

  • 2-3 days of training with cost typically 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 180 example certification problems available for subscribers. Many of the problems have further explanations along with additional developmental material that can be found within this site.

If you understand the concepts and answers to these sample problems, you're well on your way to passing a SSYB certification exam. 

A SSYB looking to grow into a SSGB or SSBB can help themselves but learning how to analyze data and mastering Six Sigma software programs. You will be surprised how much you learn by handling data and working through the challenges of getting the results and interpreting the results.
