6sigmastudy – Six Sigma Training and Certification Courses
Six Sigma was developed by Motorola in 1986 as a way to improve quality of process outputs. As a set of quality management methods, it seeks to identify and remove the causes of defects to make sure that products and processes fall into the 6 standard deviation (sigma) level that corresponds to a yield that is 99.99966 percent error-free. It includes techniques, tools and key roles such as Black Belt and Green Belt for successful implementation. It started in the manufacturing industry but is now applied to many types of projects and widely accepted as a quality standard across many industries. 6sigmastudy is a leading training provider of different 6 Sigma certifications.
6sigmastudy is from VMEdu, world-class training provider and PMI Global REP. Taking a course from 6sigmastudy means the student earns PDU for PMI credential recertification. Moreover, the Human Resource Certification Institute also accepts as credit hours for PHR and SPHR certification/recertification any 6 Sigma training taken from this provider.

6sigmastudy offers self-paced online courses for Six Sigma Green Belt, Black Belt, Lean Black Belt, and Minitab training. As mentioned, 6 Sigma methods include the designation of specific roles for successful implementation. Green Belt (GB) training provides a person with doctrines and responsibilities focused at the technical and operational levels of 6S projects. GB course content includes an introduction, stakeholders, setting up a project, and the methodologies of define, measure, analyze, improve and control. The GB certification exam is based on these eight phases.
Black Belt (BB) training focuses on project execution, special leadership and special tasks. Course content includes introduction, the methodologies of define, measure, analyze, improve and control, design for Six Sigma (DFSS) and a discussion of two case studies. The BB certification exam is based on the seven phases with focus on the strategic and policy levels of 6 Sigma projects.
