  • Applicants must describe their training program; that is, how their belt courses are taught. 
  • Swiss Alliance Lean Six Sigma’s training criteria:
    • 160 hours for Master Black Belt
    • 120 hours for Black Belt
    • 80 hours for Green Belt
    • 40 hours for Yellow Belt
  • Variations in training methods (in-class, e-learning, video series, blended, etc.), class formats (University, Corporate), class sizes, prerequisites, supplemental training/learning activities and on the job training can cause this guideline to be challenging to assess. Nevertheless, every provider seeking accreditation should be prepared to define how their programs compare to these guidelines and reasonably justify deviations.
  • Swiss Alliance Lean Six Sigma uses training duration as one measure to assess the quality of a providers training programs. This measure is considered in part and parcel with other measures such as Swiss Alliance Certification Exam performance history, if applicable, student and customer reviews who have engaged in the providers training programs, when appropriate, along with the other criteria required to achieve this accreditation. Therefore, in certain circumstances, providers may successfully gain accreditation with training durations that are somewhat less than these guidelines. Nevertheless, this guideline provides a valuable yardstick to assess a providers training programs.
