A Six Sigma Yellow Belt candidate has completed a basic level of training in process problem solving and statistical analysis techniques.

A Six Sigma Yellow Belt candidate has completed a basic level of training in process problem solving and statistical analysis techniques. He/she is in a position to work in collaborative teams to problem solve, improve processes, and to support Green Belts. Yellow belts are expected to work in teams and resolve low level local problems on an on-going basis.

The 2 highly interactive workshops each last one working day, and are scheduled back to back. Workshops are case-study based. Participants are required to select a variety of work problems on which to work during training. The course facilitator will review in advance with each candidate, over the phone the problems being brought to the workshop. This is to ensure appropriate scope.
