There are two levels of Green Belt namely Practitioner and Fully Certified

  • Candidates initially train to become Green Belt Practitioners (Part 1) in eliminating  process waste and improving flow using lean tools
  • Further training using  more advanced problem solving techniques to reduce defects and process variation can lead to becoming a Fully Certified Green Belt (Part 2).

Green Belts are usually seen as part time  problem solvers in process improvement – capable of leading projects and workshops

Being a Green Belt also means being a mentor and coach in process improvement to Yellow Belts and other project team members

A Green Belt qualification is internationally recognised and is a pathway course to becoming a Black Belt

Green Belts are expected to develop as ‘change agents’ and become potential continuous improvement leaders

Green Belts will see things differently and learn new tools including being able to evaluate customer requirements, sources of variation, root cause and how to sustain project benefits

Learning how to facilitate acceptance of change will become a new life skill

Green Belts will understand how to accelerate projects and increase team engagement
