MODULAR APPROACH: The training modules below can be approached in stages. Participants can enrol separately in any of them depending on their prior training, knowledge and experience. For those who intending to achieve Black Belt Certification need to have completed all three stages or their equivalent.
FLEXIBILITY: If carried out as an in-house training inside your organisation, these courses can be tailored to suit the needs of your organisation and be delivered in a way to suit the organisation’s timetable.
CERTIFICATION: Those interested in the certification component must enrol separately after the coursework has been completed or demonstrate equivalent achievement. During the course work assessments are carried out that constitute 30% of Certification. The other 70% is achieved through the completion of a real project. For this component enrolment is a separate process.

The high level ratio of Black Belt Facilitators to participants (1 to 5 or 6) , underpins the depth of our training approach. Completion of Green Belt elsewhere is considered equivalent prior learning for entry into Stages 2 and 3. Prior learning assessment is conducted.
