Purdue University Fort Wayne leverages the resources of Purdue University by teaming up with their MEP program to offer this training.

The Mission:
To advance economic prosperity, health, and quality of life in Indiana and beyond.

As advocates for Indiana's thousands of manufacturers, our staff leverages resources in both the public and private sectors to help identify areas of improvement, streamline processes, and ultimately increase competitiveness.

Six Sigma Green Belt Certification
Prerequisites: Some knowledge of basic statistics.

Purdue MEP's Six Sigma Green Belts are trained in a subset of Black Belt tools and methodologies. Green Belts assist Black Belts with major projects and can independently lead minor projects. At many companies, Green Belts have a part-time continuous improvement role. Participants will leave the training with a thorough understanding of the DMAIC process, data collection techniques, and the statistical methods used in Six Sigma projects. Our Six Sigma Green Belt program includes training on how to use Minitab to perform statistical quality analysis; as part of the program fee, all participants will receive a six-month, non-renewable license to the latest version of Minitab. If you or your company already have Minitab software, contact for registration assistance.

 Note: Six Sigma Black Belt training is also available for an additional 6 days of training (12 days total).

Course Highlights:

  • Participants who complete all 6 days of training and pass the Green Belt Certificate test will receive a Six Sigma Green Belt Training Certificate.
  • Participants who also submit evidence of meaningful contributions to a completed Six Sigma project within 120 days of the completion of formal training will receive a Green Belt Certification.

Benefits of Six Sigma Certification:
Most companies have problem zones or areas that need improvement. Green Belts and Black Belts can be used to improve broken processes. Purdue University Fort Wayne's Six Sigma training offers real world solutions to fix these problems by using statistical analysis through the DMAIC training procedure.

A student project during the training provides both hands-on experience while allowing your organization to combat problem processes from poor customer service to product improvement.

Intended Audience
Recommended for owners or management teams for small to medium-sized manufacturers, engineers or technical staff.
