The pd training Six Sigma Green Belt eLearning course is structured to teach the problemsolving methodology so trainees gain an indepth understanding of the Lean Six Sigma process and how to apply the methodology to projects as opposed to how to use a specific set of tools.
The materials cover theory and are supplemented with stepbystep examples, using Minitab or SigmaXL.
Trainees build a thorough understanding of when and why they should perform an action (2 sample ttest for example) how to perform that action and how to properly interpret the result of the output in both a "statistical" and "practical" sense.
Alignment to Lean Six Sigma Industry Standards
Pd training is recognised by the International Association for Six Sigma Certification (IASSC) as an Accredited Provider. This means that the pd training eLearning Belt courses are highly aligned to the IASSC Bodies of Knowledge.
In addition an independent study conducted in coordination with Bearing Point Consulting determined that the pd training curriculum matched the DMAIC ASQ Body of Knowledge to a degree greater that 90%.
