MyCAA Career Training Courses

The Black Belt Training Program flow follows the DMAIC methodology. You'll learn the appropriate tools and concepts at each stage of project deployment. Since software will be used for data analysis, the program material concentrates on the application and use of the tools, rather than on detailed derivation of the statistical methods.

Your analytical and problem-solving skills will be challenged by workshops, which are incorporated extensively throughout the training. Once you've successfully completed the program, you'll be eligible to work toward a Black Belt Certification through the International Quality Federation ( Achieving this certification is at your discretion and dependent upon you meeting the criteria the International Quality Federation sets; certification is not automatic upon completion of this program or tied to the accredited college or university you registered through.

This program is compatible with the Windows XP and later operating systems and IE 7 and later browsers.

To access this program and Study Guide, you need only a Web-enabled computer. To run the Green Belt XL software, you'll need to have Excel 2003, 2007, or 2010 . Black Belts should also have a general statistical software package, such as Minitab. Optionally, they may purchase an upgrade to the Green Belt XL software which includes a untility to construct designed experiments. (The utility alone does not run in 64 bit environments.)
