Lean Six Sigma White Belt
The Lean Six Sigma White Belt Training Program is intended to develop practitioners that are capable of facilitating their respective organizations toward best-in-class status by reducing costs, improving cycle times, eliminating defects, eliminating variation and increasing customer satisfaction.
White Belts are pragmatically trained individuals who possess the technical knowledge and skills that are necessary to facilitate breakthrough improvements in key processes that support the overall business aims and operational goals of an enterprise.
On the last day of training, the candidate will be subject to a 1-hour open-book examination with a minimum score required of 70%. After successfully completing the Exam, the candidate is then officially recognized as Black Belt Program Qualified. The related certificate is internationally granted and issued by the Dr. Mikel Harry Six Sigma Management Institute USA.
Basic arithmetic skills are essential (i.e., be able to perform addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and work with fractions and decimals). Basic computer skills are also essential. In this context, a rudimentary understanding of Excel is highly recommended, but not essential.
The total instructional time for the White Belt training program is 3 day. The actual task-time will vary, depending on the selected delivery system. If a candidate will choose an e-learning self-paced program of study (via MindPro® ), the typical candidate will complete the program in less than one month.

In turn, the topics are defined by competencybased training modules, where each module is comprised of instructional steps. The segment and topic titles associated with the White Belt Program of Study are as follows:
