Six Sigma Black Belt

Description: Black Belts are intern consultants who work under Six Sigma. Black Belts would act as a connection between the improvement team and the managemental group (Champions, Vice president). Black Belts would communicate Six Sigma activities progress in periodic terms.

Black Belts were trained through 160 hours course, and  they had to accomplish satisfactory a 70,000.00 - 250,000.00 USD project (Depending upon Corporate Strategies)

Duration: 160 hours.
