As organizations strive to meet the changing and competitive nature of business, continuous improvement leaders are required to drive process improvement and champion cultural change.

This program is designed for individuals interested in becoming leaders of continuous process improvement work within their organization. Throughout this program, participants focus on the application of Lean, Six Sigma, and other process improvement concepts to reduce operational costs, improve quality and value, and save money. This Green Belt Certification program provides practical learning through a combination of in-class learning from industry leaders and guest lecturers, discussions, exercises, case studies, and project work.

Following the completion of eight in-class training days, participants will initialize and complete a project for their organization under the supervision of a Master Black Belt instructor.

The University of Calgary provides the Green Belt certification as a secondary certification provider. Participants who successfully complete the program requirements will earn certification as a Lean Six Sigma Green Belt.

The course content for this program aligns with industry learning standards, and participants may choose to sit third-party certification exams through accrediting organizations. There is no single accreditation body for Lean Six Sigma, therefore the University of Calgary cannot endorse any particular accrediting body.
