Quality, Optimisation Methods and Operational Excellence
Six Sigma is commonly referred to as a "breakthrough strategy" because, on the one hand, it focuses on customer orientation and, on the other, it is not about achieving countless small improvements: With Six Sigma you can achieve significant optimisations and error reduction with long-term, sustainable results.
Against the background of increasing globalisation and the associated steadily growing international competition, more and more companies are introducing Six Sigma as a process optimisation method. Therefore, this university certificate can be a door opener for possible applications.
In this course you will acquire the knowledge as well as the methodological competence to introduce Six Sigma in your company or in your department, to supervise as a project manager or to be an expert employee.
As a certified Six Sigma Green Belt you will take on the role of a project manager of Six Sigma improvement projects. You are responsible for the success of the projects you lead. You must therefore know and be able to apply the Six Sigma DMAIC methodology and its various tools and methods. The contents of our training are focused on the specific tasks of Green Belts in the Six Sigma organisation and are based on the fundamentals you have acquired in our Six Sigma Yellow Belt certification.
2-day training, based on the Six Sigma Yellow Belt and a practical project
The project verification takes place through a virtualised and web-based simulation of a real company project, developed and provided by our cooperation partner especially for this purpose.
The project implementation is based on the DMAIC project methodology. You select the various tools and methods and apply them. Our trainers will support you by means of regular Tollgate status meetings, which are held in the form of web meetings and telephone conferences.
The proof of theoretical and practical knowledge (Green Belt requirement level) is provided by this project certificate and a theoretical final test.
This course can also be booked as a online version. (Link to the portal)

"I can recommend the Six Sigma Yellow Belt certification of the Center for Academic Further Education of DIT to everyone. On the one hand, the contents are conveyed in an understandable way, on the other hand, the required scope is still offered, which supports me professionally. Especially the corresponding documents help me to structure and measure projects. The strongest advantage of the course, the university certificate. The certificate was a good means for me to stand out from competitors. I was able to use the certificate successfully in the job interview and thus obtained the position with the desired salary."
Carsten Kipper, Project Manager Banking Frankfurt a. M.
"I had a lot of fun and I will gladly recommend the courses to others. Although I had a long journey to attend, I immediately signed up for the university certificate course Lean Management & Kaizen Practitioner with the same lecturer after I had completed the Six Sigma Yellow Belt certification. It's definitely worthwhile to be there, even if the journey is a bit longer.“
Gerhard Koller, long-distance student at Anhalt University of Applied Sciences, Electrical Engineering
"A big thank you for the great, professionally high-quality Six Sigma seminar and the perfect preparation and execution! I sent emails directly to all my remote student colleagues yesterday and made clear to them that all must come to the training at the Centre for Further Education in Deggendorf.“
Robert Kusch, Master student for Logistics at Hof University for Applied Sciences
"The Six Sigma Yellow Belt certification was a complete success due to the practical relevance and the interactive discussion with the instructor and the course participants. With the certification I am looking forward to participate in future Six Sigma projects. We Hofer students were all very enthusiastic about the entire event, including the organisation."
P. Hoffmann, Assistance Management; Freiberg am Neckar
"The certificate course was very interesting for me - as someone who has been in the profession for a few years - and the lecturer was very professional and friendly. He was able to prove the learning content with many practical examples on the subject of Six Sigma. Many thanks also for the great organisation."
Patricia Janda, Bachelor student for Industrial Engineering at Deggendorf Institute of Technology
"I particularly liked the practical relevance and the high learning effect due to the small group size and the mixture of practitioners and students. The balance of theory and practice as well as the competent lecturer ensured a successful seminar. I am already looking forward to putting my acquired knowledge into practice!"
Mr. Michael Forster is currently studying General Management part-time in Bad Honnef. He has successfully completed the university certificate Lean Management & Kaizen Practitioner as well as the Six Sigma Yellow Belt certification at the Centre for Academic Further Education of DIT and is happy to answer our questions.
Why did you decide to book the Six Sigma Yellow Belt certification immediately after the first course?
I was already so enthusiastic about the first course. There are not many training courses where you come to work the next day and immediately know how to apply the tools you have learned.
In your opinion, what makes the certifications of the Center for Academic Further Education of DIT stand out from others?
First of all, these courses are held by motivated lecturers who are real experts in their field.
Secondly, it is a compact and practice-oriented training concept with practice phases, whereby the participants are individually involved.
And what's more important, the courses are suitable for everyone: from students to practitioners with many years of experience. This is mainly due to the technical and didactic competence of the instructor, who will meet each participant at his or her level.
What is the next step for you in regards to the topic of process management?
I will continue to use the tools I have learned with enthusiasm every day and expand my knowledge in this regard. I will be tackling the Six Sigma Green Belt in the foreseeable future and will be happy to return to your Center for Academic Further Education at any time for further training.
