QFD Green Belt® UPDATE Course

Many new advancements have been made in QFD over the last few years with the publication of ISO 16355. If it has been more than 18 months since you attended the QFD Green Belt® Course, we strongly recommend this half-day, semi-private refresher course.

Created in response to students' request to help keep the momentum going, this is a continuing education exclusively for those who have successfully graduated from the QFD Institute's QFD Green Belt® Course in the past.

The 2022 QFD Green Belt® Update Course will be delivered as a 4-hour virtual online course, a few days before the 2022 QFD Black Belt®. This offers those who earned a Provisional QFD Green Belt® in 2020 or earlier to attend the QFD Black Belt® Course, by giving them an opportunity to refresh and bring their QFD knowledge and skills up to date, including the latest materials and techniques.

Attendees of this Update will receive the latest version of the QFD Green Belt® training manual and templates, plus ISO 16355 series bibliographic reference papers (e‐Book). They will also get a 1-year extension of the provisional Green Belt® status. You can bring your QFD samples for critique and coaching, or send your questions in advance.

For questions, please contact us.
