Lean and Six Sigma deliver business goals and objectives through the rigorous application of proven improvement methodologies. Combining both these methodologies eliminates waste, increases value and reduces variation.
By focusing on the customer and delivering benefits quickly it is possible to improve quality performance and profitability simultaneously.
Thornley Group Green Belt training is carried out by professional trainers who are experienced as senior management practitioners in both Six-Sigma and Lean. After completion of the training you will have a detailed knowledge of how to apply the learning and you will be able to deliver significant benefits in a structured way.
Prior to taking the exam, there is a further 15 hours of study using your course manual and our online testing which will enable you to study all the subject areas, in a structured way, right up to your exam. Access is also provided to our online video-based training that provides a further 16 hours of study after attending the 3-day course.
Attendees must be already trained as Yellow Belts.

Our Green Belt training gives an extensive grounding in Lean Six-Sigma which covers in detail: Lean tools and techniques and business benefits, project set-up, DMAIC and all the associated statistical tools and techniques. Thornley Group Green Belt training is targeted at people who spend a significant amount of time involved in process improvement. This could either be as a process owner or a member of a team working on an improvement project. After completion of this training you can be upgraded to Black Belt with only a further 5 days of training.
Using their practical experience of improvement programmes, along with simulation exercises, our trainers can take candidates through the process of applying the tools and techniques that they learn.
The 3-day upgrade focuses on the Green Belt advanced topics for each of the DMAIC phases. This is a very detailed intensive 3-days.
- Candidates must be Yellow Belt trained prior to attending. Attendees who have been trained by other organisations may attend and take the exam but, due to the inadequate coverage seen in some training provider content, we cannot warrant that your prior-learning is adequate for the Green Belt Exam.
- Candidates must have basic numeracy skills (See separate maths qualifier test on our resources page).
- Candidates should ideally have the authority to work on a project in their organisation as this will improve credibility with prospective employers. This should be a cost saving, defect reduction or other customer impact project. Thornley Group will provide a simulation case-study where this is not possible.
