Certified Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt (CLSSYB)

Certified Six Sigma Yellow Belt certification course gives an overview into the techniques of Six Sigma, its metrics, and basic improvement methodologies. Our Certified Six Sigma Yellow Belt training will help participants;

Learn how to integrate Six Sigma methodologies for the improvement of production and transactional systems, in order to better meet customer expectations and bottom-line objectives of their organization.

Get an introduction to process management and the basic tools of Six Sigma, giving participants a stronger understanding of processes, enabling each individual to provide meaningful assistance in achieving an organization’s overall objectives.

Participants will be required to undertake and complete a Six Sigma Yellow Belt project before certification.



Achieving your Yellow Belt Certification in Lean Six Sigma (based on the IASSC standard exam) demonstrates ascertain command of Six Sigma and Lean processes and principles.

The Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt certification preparation and training course will empower you to contribute to any continuous improvement (CI) initiative.

During the course you will learn both techniques and strategies and how to put them into practice using a range of activities and case studies.

The tools you master will prepare you for the exam, and empower you to support continuous improvement projects in your workplace. Lean Six Sigma is the most highly regarded CI and Management System ever developed – Yellow Belt Certification is your ticket to enter the world of CI with credibility, respect and ability.

The training course provides comprehensive training and exam preparation to achieve Yellow Belt Certification with the International Association of Six Sigma Certification. No prior knowledge of Lean Six Sigma is necessary to participate in this course.


The Yellow Belt Certification Training course is a practical training experience that includes the use of many LSS tools and techniques in a range of activities and scenarios outlined in the IASSC authorised training materials.

You will learn Lean Six Sigma theory and practice applying the techniques, so that you well be well prepared to take the IASSC exam and be ready to contribute as a respected member of Continuous Improvement (CI) Projects.

The implementation roadmaps within each phase provide you with a clear path for putting into practice the problem solving methodologies and measurement tools. Various group exercises using training activities, data sets and templates facilitate interactive group learning and collaboration.

Our expert LSS trainers look forward to welcoming you to the class and empowering you with skills and techniques you can put into practice on the job, and advance your career.
