Christa Sterling

Six Sigma Green Belt Certification Online

WIOA Eligible

Green Belts are Six Sigma practitioners who do process and product improvement project work. The focus of Six Sigma is to reduce and control variation and waste in our processes based on the importance to the customer and the business needs. Students will be asked to consider a project before coming to class.



CCSU’s Lean Six Sigma Certification Program covers Lean Six Sigma by following the DMAIC approach. Graduates learn fundamental principles, tools, and methods while completing a company project by applying Lean Six Sigma principles. Classes are conducted live and remotely via telecon on Tuesdays and work labs employing learned principals are conducted remotely on Thursdays.

Students will be asked to complete a project which will be reviewed by the instructor and CCSU’s School of Engineering, Science and Technology.

This is a good class for a small group from one company to attend together and work on a project together.

Who Should Enroll

This course is especially beneficial for 1) working employees and executives who must remain on site at their workplace and 2) companies that desire their employees to complete a cost reduction project while taking the class. A Lean Six Sigma “Green Belt” or “Black Belt” Certification is awarded upon completion of the class and a project synopsis reviewed and approved by a company representative and a certified CCSU Lean Six Sigma “Master Black Belt.”

Companies wishing to send 8 or more people can have their own customized class.
