Six Sigma Certification Program Launched

October 22, 2014

MindEdge Learning has launched its comprehensive online Six Sigma training and certification program based on the DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, and Control) quality process model.

MindEdge offers three Six Sigma certifications: Yellow Belt, Green Belt, and Black Belt. Courses are 100% web-based, affordable, easy to navigate, and interactive with games, case studies, and questions to test mastery.

MindEdge Six Sigma online courses are self-paced and offered through MindEdge Online as well as through selected training partners and institutions of higher education.

The MindEdge Six Sigma Belts

The Yellow Belt certification is appropriate for individuals who play a part-time role in Six Sigma improvement endeavors, primarily supporting the efforts of Green Belts and Black Belts. This program covers the fundamentals of the DMAIC methodology.

The Green Belt certification is an intermediate level program covering the DMAIC methodology for individuals who are Six Sigma team members in an organization.

The Black Belt certification recognizes a full-time Six Sigma implementation expert who manages projects and may also mentor Green Belts and Yellow Belts in an organization. This is an advanced level program covering the DMAIC methodology.

Through the Ask the Expert feature, learners can submit content-related questions and receive feedback within 24 hours. For students seeking black belt certification, MindEdge's Black Belt Review Panel reviews projects for completeness.

Certification Exams

The certification exam for each Six Sigma Belt includes a selection of material covered in the Belt's respective preparation course. The Yellow Belt and Green Belt exams consist of multiple-choice questions only, while the Black Belt exam includes several essay questions that require a written response. For those taking a certification exam without completing a MindEdge preparation course, the level of information in the certification exam can be expected to meet the level of knowledge of a working professional holding the Six Sigma Belt.

The prerequisites to take a Six Sigma certification exam depend upon the Belt level. The MindEdge Six Sigma Yellow Belt does not have any prerequisites and may be taken by anyone who feels she or he is adequately prepared to pass the certification exam. Individuals interested in taking the MindEdge Green Belt certification exam are encouraged to have some exposure to Six Sigma initiative in an organizational setting. Those seeking to take the MindEdge Six Sigma Black Belt certification exam are required to provide a written description of at least three years of exposure to Six Sigma initiatives in an organizational setting.

To maintain a MindEdge Six Sigma certification, you must complete the recertification exam (50 questions) every 3 years. Recertification ensures that your knowledge of Six Sigma principles remains current and that your certification retains its value. Upon successful completion of the recertification exam you will receive an updated certificate within one week by email.
