  2. Amanda Turek says:

    If I decide to start with the Green Belt, how much more is the black belt in the future? Or is it better for me to just do the black belt now?


    • Hello Amanda,

      Thank you for your interest in our lean six sigma excellence in healthcare delivery programs. In response to your questions, of those who become candidates in our green belt programs they often require an additional 3 weeks (blended) training. If you are thinking of becoming a black belt, I would suggest that you opt for the bb certification program.

      Kind Regards….
