Top 5 reasons why people REALLY choose a Six Sigma Certification
Six Sigma has quickly earned a lot of recognition for the impact it can make not only on business organizations worldwide, but also on the careers of those who have obtained their Six Sigma Certification. Below we discuss the top 5 reasons individuals choose this type of training and certification.
Let’s start with the obvious… money. The best way to increase your earning potential is to stand out from the crowd. Nothing does that quicker and for as little cost as a Six Sigma Certification. Not only because it is widely versatile across practically any industry, but also because employer know that your knowledge will very likely make a significant impact on their profits. Its no wonder they reward employees who are Six Sigma Certified so well. The following average salaries in the U.S. speak for themselves (similar result seen worldwide):
- Six Sigma Master Black Belts can earn an average annual salary of $130,878
- Six Sigma Black Belts can earn an average annual salary of $104,974
- Six Sigma Green Belts can earn an average of $90,727
We’ve seen it time and time again; individuals with their MBA’s or other advanced degrees unable to even get their foot in the door of their desired industry. Once certified in Six Sigma, their luck changes overnight. As many companies have begun implementing Six Sigma methodologies, we have seen a dramatic impact on whether or not someone lands their dream job. Employers are eager to eliminate business errors, but there are simply not enough certified professionals to meet the enormous worldwide demand. Once HR sees a Six Sigma qualification, the candidate commonly goes to the top of the resume stack.
Rule #1 in acquiring job security is “make yourself indispensable to your employer”. The purpose of Six Sigma is to reduce defects in a process. When companies face layoffs, they depend on their Six Sigma force more – not less. These employees are an organization’s front line in raising profits through cost saving initiatives. If the downturn is national or global, prospective opportunities and salaries can become even better as the competition between organizations for experienced Six Sigma professionals heats up.
Six Sigma Methodologies can transform an organization by identifying and eliminating errors that would have otherwise created poor customer satisfaction and profit losses to the business. A Certified Six Sigma professional can help across any industry to optimize any process or system leading to both hard and soft savings.
When you are capable of making a significant impact across your organization as well as being viewed as an indispensable asset to your organization, it goes without saying that leadership opportunities will become extremely common. In fact, the more you advance your Six Sigma skill set, the more opportunities will present themselves.
Job Opportunities with Six Sigma Certification
An Accredited Six Sigma Certification is a valuable asset in today’s job market. A Six Sigma Certified professional is in high demand and is highly respected. With more organizations adopting Six Sigma methodology to improve performance and reduce defects, certification can open career opportunities for positions all over the world.
Our certifications have attracted the largest and most respected names including Google, IBM, Dell, Cisco, Intel, Oracle, Accenture… just to name a few.
AVERAGE SALARIES (COMPARISON):
Note: Just as any educational achievement, your career prospects of being Six Sigma Certified is extremely dependent on several factors. Location, previous experience, industry type, etc. all will play an enormous role.

Our Certifications NEVER Expire
Unlike many Six Sigma Certification providers, we never put an expiration date on your certification.
Many providers require renewals not so much to benefit their certified students, but instead to increase their own revenues.
This can be extremely lucrative for them as they force you to pay extra exorbitant costs over the course of your entire career. Even worse, these costs are often hidden the details of the expiration in fine print. It is not uncommon for a student to be shocked with this information only AFTER they have earned their achievement and see their final certificate.
Think about it… does a college degree come with an expiration date? Neither should your Six Sigma Certification.
Fortune 500 Companies Choose Us
Rest assured that our training is well recognized in the business community and we take the needs of employers very seriously. Many other training providers certify their students without a serious attempt of teaching thorough and lasting fundamentals of Six Sigma business methodologies. Our programs were designed to offer the most flexibility while still retaining a rigorous course-load. Every Six Sigma course offered by the Aveta Business Institute is self-paced.
Our programs have been used throughout the world by some of the largest companies… our certifications are very well respected. Below is a short list of Six Sigma business clients that have benefited from having their employees enrolled into our online program:
- State/Federal Government Agencies
Free Deadline Extensions
Your life can become unexpectedly busy and stressful… we aren’t looking to make things even worse by imposing unrealistic deadlines.
Since our courses are designed for individuals whose schedule demands a self-paced approach, you decide when to take your exams. There is no “set” scheduled online class time (or date). Our courses were designed to fit around your busy lifestyle.
Our students have 12 months from the time of payment to complete all of their certification requirements. However, even if you require more than 1 year to complete your program, course extensions can be requested at any time before your deadline from Customer Care (free of charge).
We Pass Our Savings Onto You!
We offer the same quality Six Sigma training you will find at many top universities.
However, many of these leading collegiate training providers have a problem. They offer both classroom-based and online-based programs.
Classroom-based training is much more expensive for these providers since they have to pay for facilities, full-time instructors, travel costs, etc. When asked to justify the higher price, their only real justification is that since an instructor speaks to an entire class, you would have learned significantly more than if you would have read the same material yourself (even though U.S. Department of Defense studies have shown that online training proved to be more effective in courses of greater complexity than classroom-based instructor-led training).
Let us not also forget that in a classroom environment, students are rushed through their programs (and often not given a chance to absorb the material) due to strict time constraints. Most importantly, students are not provided a way to easily reference the material later (it is only natural that students will forget pieces of what they have learned as time goes on).
This reasoning makes learning Six Sigma in an online environment HIGHLY preferable to classroom-based training.
In a perfect world, this shouldn’t matter since many respected colleges and universities also offer online courses. Often, these colleges and universities keep their online prices inflated to help subsidize their classroom-based programs. This is why you will see our same program sold for double or triple the price elsewhere.
We would much rather keep our prices honest and pass the savings directly to you.
