How do I access the course?

You can access the course anywhere you can get on the Internet — simply log in to the portal from your computer, tablet, or phone.

Will I receive certification when I'm done with this course?

No. There is no official certification for a Yellow Belt, as there is with the more complex Green Belt or Black Belt. Those certifications require advanced coursework, an online exam, and project completion. However, companies looking for proof of Yellow Belt experience will be satisfied with your Certificate of Course Completion, which you will receive after finishing all of the course quizzes.

How long does Yellow Belt training take?

You have 365 days to complete the course, which represents about 28 hours of training, not including any external project work you may choose to complete.

Do I need a project to complete the training?

No. We do not require a project for training, though we strongly recommend that you accompany the coursework with a meaningful project. A real-world project will significantly enhance the learning experience because you can use it to directly practice the concepts and tools as you complete the course. Successful project work is also required for any certification process.

Do you offer pricing discounts for groups of trainees and deployments?

Of course! Many of our larger customers send tens to hundreds of employees through Yellow Belt training. Please contact us directly to discuss your specific needs.
