The Sapphire Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt is based on the globally recognized Ohio standard for Yellow Belt. It consists of 20 on-line Lessons (with an accompanying on-line test) where candidates learn the theory behind the core lean six sigma tools. A small project also needs to be completed where candidates demonstrate application of these tools. It takes 20 – 30 learning hours to complete the full programme and candidates typically do this over a 3-4 month period. Candidates are guided through the programme by a course tutor who is a Lean Six Sigma Blackbelt.
