What are the certification requirements for Six Sigma Certification?
Certification Requirements are as follows:
- Each student has 1 year to complete his/her course
- If using a Payment Plan, the full balance must be paid before certification occurs.
For certification you must meet the following requirements:
Yellow Belt: Successful passing of 5 online exams with a 70% or higher
Green Belt: Successful passing of 8 online exams with a 70% or higher
Lean & DFSS: Successful passing of 9 exams with a 70% or higher
Black Belt: Successful passing of 15 online exams with a 70% or higher & satisfactory completion of a final Black Belt Project.
Master Black Belt: Successful completion of our Black Belt Program (90% minimum exam scores) & submission of 2 additional Black Belt Projects.
The final project for our Black Belt Program is a written business plan that utilizes the Six Sigma method to reflect a cost benefit. The written business plan is a review of your comprehension of the material and your understanding of project implementation. You are not required to complete the project in a “live” business environment (i.e. it can be hypothetically based). Additionally, this project is not required for Yellow Belt, Green Belt, or Lean/DFSS Certification.
