Parkland College Business Training in partnership with Illinois State University (ISU) is pleased to offer comprehensive Six Sigma Green Belt training.  Students must complete the online exercises prior to the final meeting date of each course.  Once payment has been made, you will receive an email from ISU with instructions on how to access the online resources for the course.  Classes will be taught by ISU faculty.

Classes can be taken individually or as a series.   The six series classes (208 hrs) are required in order to prepare for the Six Sigma Green Belt Exam. 

Participants can participate in any of the following three ways:

  • Attend class via a live video broadcast BTCE Room 125
  • Attend a live class at the Alumni Center on the ISU campus
  • View the recorded broadcast video online (prefect for traveling and busy adults)
