Q9 Part B – What would it cost me to get certified as a Lean Six Sigma GREEN BELT with AOBIL?

Let’s assume you are disciplined and maintain momentum to completed the Online Lean Six Sigma Green Belt training course in a reasonable time frame, the following cost scenarios would be close to the mark.

Option 1 – Do the training, do a work based project and then undertake online certification process

Option 2 – Do the training and then participate in the 3-day Application Masterclass

Those are genuine prices and the quality of the training is not eroded. I would recommend Scenario 2 to most people because of the value they’ll get out of the mentoring and coaching they receive in the masterclass.
