Course contents

The Online Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt is an engaging flexible training programme that consists self-guided modules, webinars and online workshops focussed on real world industry examples and projects. It is a self-study programme where learners are encouraged to learn and work at their own pace through interactive and media rich learning materials. The programme is taught in a modular format, but learners have the capability revisit and review modules and learning content that they have already completed.

Upon enrolment on the dedicated Learning Management System (LMS), Learners will need to complete eight online learning modules and attend a number of virtual workshops/webinars scheduled throughout the duration of the programme.

The materials that are used to support learning within the LMS:

  • Online Learning Content – All the online learning modules use a mix of multimedia to present material, including text, videos, slide shows, diagrams, charts, and case scenarios. Completing these modules will assist learners in how to apply the DMAIC process and Lean tools as well as developing their A3 Report.
  • Learning Activities – As learners work through the online modules, they will be asked to complete a number of learning activities based on Lean and Six Sigma topics that are covered. Each learning activity is designed to be a resource for the final submitted assignment.
  • Programme Resources – Additional resources are available with the online learning platform to support additional learning and the completion of learning activities and final assignment.
  • Project Mentoring – Learners will receive project mentoring and feedback on the progress of their chosen project along with their application of Lean processes and tools.

In addition to the online modules, the programme also includes live workshop webinars that provide peer to peer learning opportunities as well as mentoring and support from tutors for the development of the final assignment.

This programme is delivered over 8 weeks of self-directed learning. See below a breakdown of approximate estimations of the course workload:

  • Reading and self-study (additional reading materials) = 8 hours
  • Training Time (Online modules & Instructor-led Webinars) = 16 hours
  • Project Work (Running the project in your organisation) = 30-50 hours – this will vary depending on the scope of the project, nature of the business and process for management of projects and change within the organisation.

Type of training

This online course is a combination of e-learning, computer-based learning, videos, group work and self-study.
