There are many reasons why an individual might want to take my Six Sigma Green Belt Certification. The most common reason is to increase the quality of manufacturing processes within a company. With a Six Sigma Green Belt Certification you can be hired to oversee specific projects such as process improvement at a hospital, or project improvements at a small airline. This certification enables you to be hired for any type of project that has to do with improving quality.
You may also find that you want to do Six Sigma yourself. There are plenty of books, videos, classes and other resources available for training. However if you are like me, you do not have the time or the money to attend a regular class. My recommendation for this case is the Six Sigma Training DVD.
Most of the online Six Sigma training courses are fairly priced. They do vary in price, so it is a good idea to shop around before deciding on which course to take. The advantage of online training is that you can take the course whenever is convenient for you. Plus with most online courses you will receive the certification at the end of the course rather than later. Once you complete the Six Sigma Green Belt Certification course you will be able to take the test that will certify you for the Six Sigma Green Belt Certification.
When you take an online Six Sigma Green Belt certification course, you will be provided with a syllabus. Along with the syllabus you will receive information about the Six Sigma concept and methodology along with tips on completing the training. Along with this you will receive an assessment and possibly even a demo. These two tools will help you become more knowledgeable about Six Sigma and the process of becoming certified.
Once you complete the training, you will need to take a test. Many training providers will give you a sample exam to take and a review page to complete. In addition to taking the test and reviewing the material you will probably be given a final exam. This will be administered by a third party company.
Once you have successfully completed the training and passed the certification test, you will be awarded your CNA (Certified Lean Six Sigma Specialist). At this point you will need to take a final test that is administered by your instructor. If you successfully passed the first test you are qualified for your second certification. If you did not pass, you will take a re-test.
The six credits required in order to earn your Six Sigma Green Belt certification are divided equally between the two test sessions. Your first session will cover an introduction to the topic and Six Sigma concepts. Your second session will cover the concepts and tools covered in the first session. This will help you become fully knowledgeable about the Six Sigma process and how to best implement it into your organization. The Six Sigma Green Belt certification is an excellent achievement for anyone seeking further expertise and is one of the greatest compliments you can receive from your employer or industry partner.
