Your new standard of knowledge

In Lean Six Sigma, it is widely accepted that improvements are only truly effective if everyone operates the same way. Only when everyone experiences the same hurdles do improvements help raise the standards in a way that everyone benefits from them. Otherwise, it’s just another variation on someone’s personal way of working. In order to communicate, act and decide as a cohesive unit, everyone must possess the same skills and abilities- the same way of thinking. The Yellow Belt training introduces Lean Six Sigma’s essential way of thinking, and builds upon that understanding. This is how improvements are made truly impactful.

Your way of studying

Online (self-paced)

Study from the comfort of your home and complete the course at your own leisure. The Yellow Belt offers a completely online course environment, including videos, literature and various quizzes to test your understanding of each lesson. An exam is included, but when you take it is up to you. And if you don’t succeed the first time, you can simply re-do it. The online Yellow Belt is the right choice if you want to study and take the exam at your own pace.


Online (virtual classroom)

Combine interactivity with the convenience of online learning by attending the Yellow Belt training in a virtual classroom setting. Just log in, join the classroom and get started. The benefit of the virtual classroom is having a trainer present who can help you with your questions. If you like to engage in discussions for your own understanding, but still seek convenience of online learning, then this is your best pick. No travel or parking necessary.



If you prefer to learn about Lean Six Sigma in a classroom setting, then it is also possible to join our Yellow Belt classroom course. Together with fellow students and your trainer, you will study, discuss and reflect upon the techniques taught during the Yellow Belt training. The classroom training is a great choice for those who are looking for plenty of interaction and shared learning moments.


In-Company Yellow Belt

While the classroom and online options are ideal for inviduals, the In-Company Yellow Belt training is the best and most cost-efficient choice if you’re looking to train an entire team. Create a shared understanding of Lean Six Sigma within the team and bring the Continuous Improvement to your workfloor by having our trainer host a training at your location.

Frequently asked questions

Why should I do a Yellow Belt training?

Completing our Yellow Belt training is both a fast and relatively simple way of getting up to speed on Lean Six Sigma. The training teaches you about most of the techniques that you may come across as someone who is involved with Lean Six Sigma project (but not necessarily leads or participates in them)

This makes it a suitable course for team members who are looking to be well-informed about projects, but also for managers and team leads who might have to direct people who do lead projects. When people start talking about wanting to carry out a Kaizen Event or Value Stream Mapping session, you will know how much time it can take and what to expect instead of going into it blindly or refusing to commit time to it because the benefits aren’t known to you.

Is this a training intended only for beginners?

The Yellow Belt course is not intended for beginners only, the course deals with the same types of complex tools that Black Belts and Lean Leaders employ as well. The difference is the usage of statistical tools such as Minitab, and such things as knowledge of the DMAIC project structure, amongst other things.

Where other courses explore project management tools in-depth, the Yellow Belt focuses on the most commonly used tools. If you do not intend to personally lead a Lean Six Sigma project yourself, the Yellow Belt is a much better choice for you than a Black Belt for example. This also makes it a good crash course for those who quickly want to acquire knowledge of Lean Six Sigma and a certificate that acts as proof of their understanding, or for those who want to manage a team working with Lean Six Sigma.

Can I enroll and join a training without any prior experience or knowledge of Lean Six Sigma?

Every training we provide assumes our students start the training without any understanding of the Lean Six Sigma methodology. It starts with the fundamentals and explains every topic that is mentioned without assuming prior experience. During the training, you will carry out simulations and exercises to help you develop your knowledge. If you choose to carry out a project as part of your training, you will be coached and assisted by one of the (Master) Black Belts of The Lean Six Sigma Company to help you get started.


Do you offer any evening- or weekend training?

The Lean Six Sigma Company strives to organize its courses training during normal working hours.

This is a conscious choice in order to avoid interfering with the private lives of our students and to get students used to the idea of working with Lean Six Sigma during typical working hours, and continue this habit once they complete the training.

However, some local exceptions apply. Please reach out to to the helpdesk in your region if you have any questions

Is a Lean or Lean Six Sigma training relevant to my career phase?

Lean and Lean Six Sigma are methodologies that one can start using during any career phase, and this training is the ideal starting point. Even as a beginner, your work can add tremendous value. Either methodology can serve as an addition to your current work, replacing a part of your existing responsibilities. Or it can become a new full-time career, depending on the training you choose.

What is the right training for me?

This depends on your goals and what you intend to achieve. If you would prefer to employ Lean Six Sigma on a part-time basis, for example alongside of other work, the Green Belt training would be the best choice. If it’s your aim to work with Continuous Improvement and Lean Six Sigma on a full-time basis, then the Black Belt training would be the right pick. The same applies to Lean and our Lean Practitioner and Lean Leader training, respectively.
