Practical information.

For whom

Green Belt professionals who carry out projects for the development of new products, services and processes. We expect affinity with decision-making based on facts, supported by statistics and personal involvement in projects. The training is suitable for professionals at academic or HBO level, or the same level of knowledge gained through experience.


You will receive proof of participation.  

The training is a good preparation for the certification programs of the Holland Innovative Academy: 

  • Two variants: Lean Six Sigma and Design for Six Sigma 
  • Two degrees: green belt and black belt 
  • Two exam components: theory exam and practical component (1 or 2 successful projects) 

To obtain the certificate, candidates need to demonstrate they control the Green Belt or Black Belt level of the learning objectives specified in the Six Sigma curriculum. This is tested through a theoretical exam. In addition candidates need to submit one (Green Belt) or two (Black Belt) successful projects, demonstrating that they can apply the Six Sigma way of working effectively. 

 Alternative certification options are the UvA and IASSC programs.
