South Carolina Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt Training and Certification
Not all experts in LSS are able to handle every responsibility and task involving the methodology, which is why the training they access is divided into belts, which give them access to different information and help develop specific skills. A Lean Six Sigma yellow belt corresponds to the introductory level. Therefore, if you are a beginner or know almost nothing about the methodology, the best decision you can make is to focus on the basics and essentials by starting with this belt training. But before getting there, what is a belt? What is the difference between the ones available? And why would you choose the yellow one besides being for beginners?
There are many questions about LSS and when it comes to learning and getting trained in it, you will come across more than you think. Now, focusing on the ones above, a belt is considered to be a level in the methodology. In other words, you do not have ‘levels’ but rather belts that determine the training you will get as well as the certification.
Depending on the belt you choose you will obtain a different training based on a wide range of topics and understanding of 6 Sigma. Of course, benefits also vary and you might want to evaluate this before making a decision. With this in mind, you must know that a yellow belt besides being introductory in the methodology still allows you to opt for small roles within an LSS team or different positions within a company. Therefore, it may be an introduction but the knowledge you acquire along with the skills you get to develop are valuable for certain positions and tasks in a wide range of projects, be it for Lean Six Sigma and its implementation or other goals.
What Does Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt Teach?
Mentioning that you will learn the basics is quite generic and we know you are more interested in having an overview and outline of the methodology. However, the final program and training will depend on the company and expert that gives you access to the option. At Lean Six Sigma Experts of South Carolina, we are able to offer you one of the best LSS yellow belt courses in the state and besides covering the main topics, we have included other elements to learn and skills to be developed. Understand the concepts, terminology, principles, and main tools of Six Sigma is crucial if you want to work with it. However, the profile of an expert in the methodology must include several skills and aptitudes, which are usually not included during a yellow belt training but rather in other belts—green or black, for example.
