LSS Training and Certification

Lean Six Sigma Master Black Belt


 Typically the Master Black Belt is a full time Lean Six Sigma change agent, being the highest level of Lean Six Sigma technical expertise within the organization. The Master Black Belt is actively involved in training, coaching and mentoring the Black/Green Belts.

  To qualify for the online or onsite training and certification, the Master Black Belt candidate must be a Certified Lean Six Sigma Black Belt with at least two years experience. 

  For the onsite training, the Master Black Belt candidates will receive twenty days over five months of advanced training in DMAIC, DFSS, Lean, Reliability, TOC and analytical problem solving, including hands-on training with 
Minitab statistical software. 

  For the online training and certification, the candidates have up to eighteen months  to complete the certification requirements. We have learned that a large benefit of the online training is that you can study at your own pace. Typically, completion of the certification takes four to six months on a part time basis, or the equivalent of 240-260 hours of individual study.  The Master Black Belt training program requires the completion of two Lean Six Sigma project, or one project and one research paper on a Lean Six Sigma topic. In case of an alternate research paper, a waiver of the project requirement must be approved by Lean Six Sigma Canada.
