Six Sigma Black Belt Training and Certification Program

Purdue MEP's Six Sigma Black Belts have a thorough understanding of all aspects of Six Sigma methodologies, principles, and tools. A Black Belt will become a project team leader, guiding his or her team members to a goal of eliminating as many defects as possible and making continuous improvement a way of life.

Our Six Sigma Black Belt program includes training on how to use Minitab to perform statistical quality analysis; as part of the program fee, all participants will receive a six-month, non-renewable license to the latest version of Minitab. If you or your company already has Minitab software, contact for a discount code.

Black Belts:

  • Act as full-time or part-time project team leaders
  • Are responsible for implementing process improvement projects and change management efforts
  • Are skilled in the use of the Six Sigma methodology and tools
  • Generate Six Sigma enthusiasm throughout the organization
  • Incorporate the Six Sigma method into all aspects of the business
  • Mentor Green Belts and lead subject matter experts
  • Identify new sources of talent and high-potential employees
