What is the difference between a Yellow Belt and a Green Belt certification?

A Yellow Belt certification covers the basics of Six Sigma concepts and practices, and it teaches the individual how to play a supporting role in their organization. It is an entry-level certification that many employees are now required to have.

The Green Belt certification course builds upon the Yellow Belt certification. When you enroll in a Green Belt course, you will receive the coursework for both belt levels, and you will need to work through the Yellow Belt information first before tackling the Green Belt material.

What role do Green Belts play in the workplace?

The Green Belt works closely with the Black belt, helping them to define processes, scope, and limitations, and creating a high-level process map. They play an important role in projects, completing analysis and solving problems.

Why should I consider adding a Six Sigma Green Belt Certification to my resume?
