Course Description

In order to remain competitive, your company needs to be able to effectively eliminate waste (Lean Manufacturing) and improve processes (Six Sigma).  LTC’s Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt seminar was developed to meet this need.

Why Attend this Seminar?

Lean Six Sigma is globally recognized methodology that relies on a collaborative team effort to improve performance by systematically removing waste and reducing variation. It combines Lean Manufacturing and Six Sigma to eliminate the eight wastes.

Who Should Attend?

  • Organizations and individuals seeking an introduction to Lean Six Sigma tools and practices
  • Employees in management and operations involved in cross functional continuous improvement teams
  • Anyone interested in starting their Lean Six Sigma journey for employment change or promotion


Participants who complete both sessions will receive a Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt Certificate. This provides documentation of training for employers and customers of your company.
