Lean and Six Sigma deliver business goals and objectives through the rigorous application of proven improvement methodologies.Combining both these methodologies eliminates waste, increases value and reduces variation.

By focusing on the customer and delivering benefits quickly it is possible to improve quality performance and profitability simultaneously.

Thornley Group Black Belt training is carried out by professional trainers who are experienced as senior management practitioners in both Six-Sigma and Lean. After completing these 5 intensive days of training and passing the IASSC exam you will receive certification as a Six-Sigma Black Belt. This course is designed to follow on from the Green Belt.

Prior to taking the exam, there is a further 40 hours of study using your course manual and our online testing which will enable you to study all the subject areas, in a structured way, right up to your exam date.  Access is also provided to our online video-based training that provides a further 16 hours of study after attending the 5-day course (plus the 5-day Green Belt).

Our Black Belt training provides all that is required for Lean Six Sigma implementation and project leadership.  Whilst building on the central DMAIC and Lean principles, the focus is on team and project management along with advanced statistical tools and data management.

Thornley Group Black Belt training is targeted at people who run business improvement projects and/or have responsibility for managing improvement teams. After attending the course and passing the IASSC exam, a Black Belt certificate will be issued.

Using their practical experience of improvement programmes, along with simulation exercises, our trainers can take candidates through the process of applying the tools and techniques that they learn.

  • Candidates must have been trained to Green Belt level prior to attending (this will require verification prior to attendance). Attendees who have been trained by other organisations may attend and take the exam but, due to the inadequate coverage seen in some training provider content, we cannot warrant that your training is adequate for the Black Belt Exam.
  • Candidates must have a knowledge of algebra and be used to analysing numerical data (i.e. Green Belt).
  • Candidates should ideally have the authority to work on a project in their organisation as this will improve the credibility with prospective employers. This should be a cost saving, defect reduction or other customer impact project.
