One of the best options for becoming a trained Master Black Belt is to take a classroom course with us. This open training course combines a mix of online study with intensive classroom sessions and a strong focus on self-led personal development. You’ll spend five days in the classroom, but you’ll also be expected to do some online study and spend time creating and compiling your improvement portfolio. In order to certify, you’ll need to coach Green and Black Belts on an improvement project too – so ensure you allow enough time for your training.
During your three hours of free one-to-one coaching, our skilled Master Black Belts will help you apply your existing skills in a new way to take on a more consultative role.
Included in the course is a year’s free access to the online Lean Six Sigma Black Belt training and lifetime support so you can continue to build on your abilities once you’ve completed the course.
In certain circumstances we can also deliver Master Black Belt training as an in-house course. The in-house training follows the same format as the classroom course but can be delivered at the venue of your choice and is often one-to-one. For this reason, prices depend on the circumstances.

Not all applicants will be given a place on the course. Take a look at the prerequisites tab to find out if this is the right course for you.
Master Black Belts must illustrate a broad range of skills that enable them to work with advanced Lean Six Sigma methodologies, work effectively with people and provide successful coaching and support.
For such a diverse role, delegates will need to show their dedication and commitment. For this reason, candidates will be assessed for their suitability to certify throughout the training, rather than only in the final exam.
Master Black Belt training can only be delivered in a classroom setting, so if you wish to become a Master Black Belt you must attend an open course or book an in-house session.
You’ll receive three hours of one-to-one coaching, as well as unlimited email advice from a Master Black Belt and lifelong learning support.
Master Black Belts are recognised in Lean Six Sigma organisations for their exceptional talents and ability to run multiple, complex and strategically important improvement projects. They also act as trainers, coaches and mentors to Yellow, Green and Black Belts.
For this reason, the average salary for a Master Black Belt is around £100,000 (correct as of March 2016) – and in London it is even higher!
The high salary reflects the high demands placed on the shoulders of a Master Black Belt, and the expectations employers have. The financial and soft benefits from effective process improvement can be staggering, and as Master Black Belts often run these programmes businesses need to be sure they’re employing the right person.
Following the course, you’ll be able to:
Develop and deploy business improvement programmes
Facilitate strategic planning discussions to identify issues in a business
Deliver Lean Six Sigma training courses up to Black Belt level
Coach and mentor Lean Six Sigma delegates up to Black Belt level

Have confidence in your consultancy and leadership skills
Effectively influence, engage stakeholders and use your emotional intelligence and change management skills
Following the training you will receive 250 CPD points and will be certified as a competent and effective Master Black Belt.
In order to certify you will need to demonstrate your exceptional knowledge throughout the training session and exam. You’ll also need to illustrate that you have successfully coached Green and Black Belts, and trained others in Lean Six Sigma methods.
In order to attend this course you must have previously taken training to Black Belt level and have a portfolio of successful improvement project work that spans a minimum of two years and showcases your leadership, influencing and change management skills.
Prior to attending the course we ask that you:
Review our online Lean Six Sigma Black Belt training as a refresher
Ensure you have access to a laptop with Minitab 17
Compile a portfolio of projects that you have worked on and coached others for
Your portfolio should provide evidence to illustrate you have used all of the tools and techniques necessary to move up to Master Black Belt level
You must also identify projects within your place of work that you intend to provide coaching for
The five-day course is intensive and so we ask you to ensure you are able to fully commit to immersing yourself in the training. Afterwards, you should engage with your Master Black Belt to ensure your portfolio and project work is at the standard to qualify for certification.
