Sergeant Culbreath -
Good morning. There is a ton of information online covering your interest. I have listed three sources for you. Good luck.

1. Successfully complete the Lean Six Sigma Black Belt course, class project and pass the certification exam offered through Villanova to become a Certified Lean Six Sigma Black Belt (CLSSBB)... source:

2. (Source: - Lean Six Sigma (LSS) is one of the most versatile and in-demand skill sets in business today*. It is a methodology that utilizes statistical tools and concepts to identify variations or defects in a process and can accelerate development, enhance product quality, eliminate waste, and raise revenue. When executed correctly, this business methodology can work wonders to advance a career or bolster a company’s bottom line.

Emory Continuing Education's Lean Six Sigma Black Belt online certificate course elevates LSS with a course filled with real-world applications, data-driven analysis, and the latest techniques.

Hello, Try the major corporations: I received mine from Siemens and General Electric as an employee and they offered the programs for growth. Hope this helps...

General Electric may still have the course and maybe free... Ask with you company to pay for it as an idea... Be well
