Yellow Belt Training Benefits

Discover Lean Six Sigma Tools

The basic concepts of Lean and Six Sigma are simple: identify waste, streamline processes, improve efficiency and consistency.

However, you need to know how to utilise the many tools and processes it takes to implement these seemingly simple ideas.

We begin introducing you to these tools on this 2-day training.

Gain Practical Skills

The style of this Yellow Belt course is a balance of theoretical and practical learning. We want you to feel confident in using process improvement tools from the start.

Learn from Experts

Our trainers have extensive experience both in actively working on process improvement projects and delivering Lean Six Sigma training at all levels.

They will share their knowledge and guidance with you during this Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt Course.

Gain a Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt Certification

On Day 2, you’ll complete an open-book exam to achieve your Yellow Belt Certification. This underlines and cements the knowledge you have gained.

Options to Progress Your Learning

There are many levels (called “belts”) of process improvement excellence you can achieve. Following Yellow Belt, you can progress to Green Belt (running process improvement projects) and Black Belt (mentoring others and leading high-level process improvement initiatives).

Yellow Belt Training Objectives

This course is designed to be your introduction to Lean Six Sigma. Our goal is that following this course, you will become familiar with key elements of Lean Six Sigma including:

  • The 8 forms of waste
  • The DMAIC Cycle (Define, Measure, Analyse, Improve, Control)
  • Tools such as Process Maps, Root Cause Analysis, PICK charts, and more
  • How to run small process improvement initiatives
  • How to participate in larger Lean Six Sigma projects.

What is Lean Six Sigma?

Lean and Six Sigma are two separate process improvement methodologies that are very often used together for maximum impact.

Lean seeks to identify and eliminate waste from a process. Six Sigma aims to remove variation and defects from a process.

Together, they can bring about remarkable, sustainable improvements in any business.

Ideal for Teams

We also run this Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt training for teams, departments, or entire organisations.

When adopting a Lean Six Sigma mindset, it’s wise to train as many people in your business as possible. Not everyone will need to have Green or Black Belt level knowledge, but a Yellow Belt course will ensure that all personnel understand the benefit of this approach and can help support those running the process improvement initiatives.

Yellow Belt Course Content Overview

As you’ll see below, our Yellow Belt Training follows the natural progression of the DMAIC Cycle, which is used to implement Lean Six Sigma.

This is a high-level overview of what we cover on the course. You can read the course outline in detail by visiting our Yellow Belt Training webpage or requesting our PDF brochure by phone (Freephone 1800 910 810) or email (
