Six Sigma Green Belt programme

“The Six Sigma Green Belt program at The Manufacturing Institute has been the most rewarding course I have attended.  I have a degree in manufacturing and spent 3 years at university and feel I learnt more in those 10 days than I did in the 3 years I spent there. I  now have tools and the confidence to apply Six Sigma in real world situations which was my aim when I sat down on that first day at Carrington training complex.”

“Coming to Manchester weekly to the Institute helped me understand the different elements of the project and hearing different people from other industries to helped process why they were important before getting to the data stage. This is something I would of skipped through if trying to do the project by myself“

“The course and project we have found to be truly expectational not only in it’s value in learning and being able to apply Six Sigma in real world situations. This has been a fantastic and brilliant experience”

“This Six Sigma course has been the single most eye-opening course I have ever taken”

“I will take these tools and learnings into every role I do in the future.”

Our full Six Sigma Green Belt programme is conducted face to face using a mixture of practical learning and theory, including descriptive and inferential statistical methods. It has been created for managers and team leaders with a key role in Six Sigma project delivery teams, and is designed to enhance their understanding.
