Black Belt Certification

SSA & Company’s Black Belt Certification offering is a four-week, highly refined and innovative program that steps beyond traditional Black Belt training. Our participants are taught Lean and Six Sigma tools and techniques while executing a real process improvement project at their home companies.

The SSA Difference

Unlike conventional Black Belt offerings, in which participants are simply taught a series of Six Sigma tools and techniques, SSA & Company’s Black Belt Certification training also offers 20 hours of individual remote project mentoring and coaching to ensure participants deliver quantifiable, bottom-line results to their organizations.

In addition, our Black Belt Certification training sets a new standard for Six Sigma Black Belt leadership, incorporating Six Sigma, Lean, and Change Management tools into one comprehensive process improvement curriculum.
