Black Belt Bridge

SSA & Company’s Black Belt Bridge Program is a two-week course, building upon what you already learned in your Green Belt training.  All participants are taught Lean and Six Sigma tools and techniques, while executing a real process improvement project at their home companies.

The SSA Difference

At SSA & Company our progressive curriculum is set up so that you can “transfer credits” from your Green Belt training program. Not only will you skip over the first two weeks of our four-week Black Belt cycle, but you’ll also save over 30% on the standard Black Belt cost. Most importantly, the tools you’ll learn will make you an even more valuable asset to your current company as well as increase your appeal to outside companies.

Who Should Take This Course?

As with Black Belt Certification, the Bridge Program is designed for high-performing professionals who are focused on optimizing business process performance for their organization. The four-week accelerated curriculum provides future leaders with the best and most effective Lean Six Sigma training on the market.
