The Lean Six Sigma Green Belt certification course can be delivered in different formats:

  • Face-to-face, at the client
  • Online, through a mix of webinars and remote exercises

We think that the online mode has several advantages from the point of view of costs and flexibility and is therefore especially recommended for corporate training groups.

Training Material

The teacher will provide students with the slides necessary for learning the theoretical part. In addition, he will provide a manual as additional support material.

For the entire duration of the course, the teacher is available to answer any questions or doubts via email, or by setting up a short videoconference with the student.


The course has a total duration of 8h (or 1 full-time day)

Test methods

The exam can take place in written form (face-to-face) or in digital format (online) by accessing a dedicated platform. The student will have to answer a series of 30 questions in a time limit of 30 minutes. To pass the exam, the student must correctly answer at least 70% of the questions.

The student can use his own calculator.


Costs vary by format (face-to-face or online) and by groups. We also provide individual courses upon request.
