Cognoscente solutions offer an internationally-recognized Six Sigma Green Belt training and certification program. As part of our four-week Black Belt option, our Green Belt program may be taken alone or as the first step to earning your Black Belt.

In fact, cognoscente solutions was the first organization to offer a program that allowed students with no prior experience to complete the Green Belt and Black Belt programs consecutively to earn an internationally-recognized Black Belt certification.

An added benefit of this option is the ability for individuals from the same company to complete the training together even if they are working toward different belt levels. This format promotes synergy and encourages groups to work together, while also providing the flexibility to mix and match locations. In addition, we offer traditional classroom programs and onsite options, including Champion programs, designed for executives beginning the Six Sigma implementation process.

MNITAB foundation

The world of Six Sigma relies on statistics and hard data to provide process improvement. Utilizing a series of tools, strategies, and data formats, trained professionals are able to determine problems within a process, how each problem can be rectified, implement the necessary changes, and then monitor the situation. However, they don’t do all this in their heads, as this is a very specific methodology. Six Sigma professionals require specialized tools, such as our Minitab Essentials Training. If you are still wondering “What is Minitab?“, this training will help you understand this statistical software. If you have questions about applying Six Sigma using Minitab, the Minitab Essentials will provide you with a general understanding, but you can learn more by purchasing the 6 Sigma book.

Don’t focus on the Mechanics of Statistics….take Minitab Essentials Training

Every industry has software specific to it. Graphic designers use Adobe software products, administrators and office personnel use Excel or Word, and Six Sigma professionals use Minitab. It’s an essential tool in process improvement, making it essential to any Six Sigma program. This is why we say don’t learn statistics take Minitab Essentials Training or our Six Sigma Green Belt instead.

This course does not have any prerequisites. It is a great option for individuals that are already Six Sigma certified, but do not know how to use Minitab.

The Agenda includes 5 modules:

  1. Minitab Basics
  2. Inputting Data
  3. Worksheet Manipulation
  4. Creating Graphs
  5. Basic Data Analysis

At the completion of the 5 modules, the student may work on a Certification by completing assigned activities designed to demonstrate their new found knowledge.

As mentioned above, there are no prerequisites for this course. Anyone interested in learning about the Minitab software should take this course.
