Certified Lean Six Sigma 8-Hour Yellow Belt Certification Course

April 20 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm


Curious about what it takes to become a change maker? Want to learn about process improvement and how to eliminate wastes, errors, defects, and inefficiencies from day-to-day work?

ACHE of North Texas is proud to present an 8-Hour Online Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt Certification Course.


There are 5 Lean Six Sigma levels: White, Yellow, Green, Black and Master Black. The first level is the White Belt. It is the foundational course. Yellow Belt is the second level. You are not required to take the White Belt course before the Yellow, but if you have very little knowledge of Lean Six Sigma and want to learn more about the foundational aspects of Lean and Six Sigma, you may want to take the White Belt course first. The Yellow Belt course is required to be completed before the Green Belt course, as it teaches you the basics of how to use the Lean Six Sigma tools, methods, and techniques, and will help you to be more successful as a Green Belt, so you won’t be overwhelmed with information when starting out as a new Green Belt.


The Yellow Belt builds upon the foundations of what is learned in the White Belt course. You will learn how to bring together a team of Subject Matter Experts and use the Lean Six Sigma DMAIC Methodology to identify where the problems are, determine the root causes, and implement long-term, sustainable improvements to eliminate wastes, errors, inefficiencies, and defects from day-to-day processes.


The 8-Hour Online Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt certification course was created with healthcare in mind. The scenarios and simulations that are discussed are from a healthcare perspective and were based on real-life process and quality improvement projects that had previously been successfully completed.


Lean and Six Sigma have been proven to be very successful methods to eliminate wastes, errors, inefficiencies, and defects for many, many years. You can apply these methods, tools, and techniques in your home and work lives. This course is 100% online, is coached/taught in a live Zoom meeting by Certified Master Black Belt, Tanya Stinson. Tanya will support you throughout the entire course. Once the course is completed, there will be an online, open book exam that will be required to be completed. You must pass the certification exam with at least a 70 to get your LSSYB certificate.
