CERTIFICATION: Upon successful completion of this course students will sit for the MindEdge SIx Sigma Black Belt Certification Exam. The certification exam is included in the course. To apply to MindEdge's Six Sigma Black Belt Certification Program students must complete an application and submit the application to our Six Sigma counsel. Please contact your Education Mentor when you are ready to apply for your Six Sigma Black Belt Certification for instructions on how to complete and submit your application. To secure MindEdge's Six Sigma Black Belt Certification, practitioners must demonstrate mastery of Six Sigma by completing a timed online assessment and providing details of a Six Sigma project they are involved in. The four-hour, timed assessment tests an individual's competency and comprehension of Six Sigma principles, strategies, tools, and techniques. This exam includes multiple-choice and essay questions, and covers all aspects of the DMAIC methodology and its implementation. Questions are posed in several configurations that ask test takers to identify, calculate, analyze, and apply their knowledge, to demonstrate their ability to perform as important members of improvement teams. If practitioners successfully complete the exam assessment, they are then asked to provide information and updates for a new or ongoing project they are immersed in. The information and updates will be evaluated by a panel of experts who may ask questions or request additional information to ensure that participants are well versed and able to successfully complete a Six Sigma project, before certification can be conferred.
