District of Columbia Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt Certification and Training
You need to consider many levels when searching for information and being introduced to a new methodology so you can acquire all the knowledge that will help you implement it in a company or in your own projects. In the case of LSS, a level can be more beneficial depending on your professional and personal goals, so you will need to know where to start and if you want tor need to keep scaling with it. Lean Six Sigma Curriculum for District of Columbia High School Students introduces multiple levels or “belts” to spread the methodology and make sure everyone can reap the benefits of it. For it, we start by offering students and professionals our Yellow Belt Training and Certification.
Before we get into the context of this methodology’s different levels, let us define what a belt is. Because colors are used to identify the levels, Lean 6 Sigma uses belts for their description.
As you will learn, there are no registered levels with numbers or letters. They are instead arranged according to the colors of karate belts, and you need to pay attention to the training you receive in order to advance to a belt or another. In the case of the yellow one, it is often considered the introductory and main one for every beginner.
The white belt, while the most basic, does not allow you to become an expert or take on certain roles. This belt isn’t often offered as part of company training as it will only introduce you to terminology and concepts, but there’s no more value to it.
Yellow Belt Training and its certificate will introduce you to the basics, prepare you for participation in projects, and add value. This is the essential level for business professionals and students who are interested in learning and using this method since it allows them to participate in small-scale projects or take small roles in large-scale ones.
How do you know if a yellow belt is the right one? Well, everyone should start with it, so there isn’t much to do about this aspect.
A yellow belt is required for anyone who wants to progress with the green belt. For higher levels, it is normal to need the belt that corresponds to the one before it.
Yellow Belt: Is It for Professionals or Students?
One of the beauties of LSS is that students can reap the benefits from a very young age, which means high school students or teens can access it if they wish for it as they will develop crucial skills for their future careers or if they decide to aim for higher education.
In the case of business professionals, they add more value to their curriculums and are able to be valuable assets for all companies they wish to work for.
This training has been provided by Lean Six Sigma Curriculum Pros of District of Columbia for many years. After completing the training, we can guarantee that each student will have the option to get certified after taking our exam and passing it.
When considering this belt, we want you to be able to understand what to expect and how to get trained.
The time it takes depends on how much online training you have completed and whether you are able to attend class in person. On average, a yellow belt can be completed in 20 hours and 7 to 12 days.
With us, you can work around a schedule that won’t affect your regular activities and ensures that the time invested is reduced the more time you invest in learning LSS.
