Lean Six Sigma Black Belt (Exam Cost Included) Requirements / Prerequisites

In order to take the Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Certification program students will be required to provide an approved Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Training Certification certificate or test out of the Lean Six Sigma Green Belt program. Students can bypass testing out if they present a qualifying Green Belt Certificate which is:

  • Issued by a regionally accredited higher education institution
  • ASQ Issued for a Green Belt course that covers both Lean and Six Sigma concepts and tools (not only Lean, or only Six Sigma)

 

The qualifying process:

  • The Certificate must be scanned and emailed to the student's Student Advisor
  • The Certificate will be reviewed to determine if it is acceptable to take the place of Lean Six Sigma Green Belt
  • If the certificate is not acceptable, the student will be required to register for the full Lean Six Green Belt Training Certification or test out by completing the Lean Green Belt Exam

 

It is highly recommended that prospective students have a history of professional work experience (full-time, part-time, internship, volunteer work, etc.) to successfully complete course assignments and projects.

The materials for this program are all available online. Please Note: The Lean Six Sigma Green Belt and Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Certification both require students to complete a project in addition to assignments and quizzes. Projects must be based off an actual business and are subject to approval by Master Black Belt Coaches.
