There is no examination that needs to be completed for Six Sigma certification.


Instead, certification is achieved through the successful completion of:

  • Classroom Training

  • The first step in a participant’s journey to certification is instructor-led classroom training. Expert instructors, each of whom is skilled in training all levels of Six Sigma, conduct step-by-step learning with each participant in a classroom setting. Participants can enjoy and benefit from in-class discussions of real-world experience, as well as break-out sessions of individual and group labs. Participants will have the added benefit of supplemental virtual sessions between and after classroom sessions.

  • Take-Home Assignments

  • Students will be given a series of assignments to complete on their own time during and after the classroom training. Because our goal is to train resourceful Green Belts, students are allowed and encouraged to use any resources available to them, including course notes, texts and other books, Internet content and newsgroup sites and mentors, including those provided by us.

  • DMAIC Project

  • Students will need to complete a traditional DMAIC project to show use of core principles, concepts and tools. Projects will need to be driven to completion to a minimum of a pilot which will demonstrate a measurable improvement from the baseline.

  • Mentorship

  • Although the first stages are vital, the most important aspect of a participant’s course toward certification is the mentorship that they will receive afterward. Through our mentors, participants can overcome challenges and obstacles faced while they are learning the theory and tools, working on assignments and implementing the DMAIC project. Our mentors are experts in their respective fields, with experience in many different fields, mentoring participants during and after certification.

This course is ideal for anyone who desires or is required to learn the in-depth quality, process and statistical skills needed to lead Sigma teams and projects to increase process performance leading to higher profitability, lower costs and higher customer satisfaction within his/her organization.

Training with JMP, Minitab or Excel
