Six Sigma Development Solution, Inc.’s

Certification Options

Certification option #1, the IASSC Examination

Resources to help you successfully pass the IASSC examination:

** We suggest you allow at least seven days after the completion of our course to study for the IASSC Lean Six Sigma Exam**

If you choose this option to become Certified as a Lean Six Sigma Green or Black Belt, you will not have to complete a Lean Six Sigma Green or Black Belt project. Although, “It is also recommended that those sitting for the IASSC exam have real-world Lean Six Sigma work experience and project application experience.”

** We suggest if you choose the IASSC test option for certification, you also allow us to mentor you through a Lean Six Sigma Green or Black Belt Project.

Certification option #2, project option

    • Complete a Lean Six Sigma project within six (6) months using the tools, methodology, and road map provided by Six Sigma Development Solutions, Inc.
    • With this option you will earn a Lean Six Sigma Certification through Six Sigma Development Solutions, Inc. (Not through the IASSC).
    • If you complete a Lean Six Sigma Project as a group (more than one candidate working on the project), then you will also be required to pass the Six Sigma Development Solutions Internal Lean Six Sigma examination (*this is a different test than the IASSC Lean Six Sigma exam).
    • You have two chances to pass the 20-question timed (60 minutes) exam.  If you fail the test twice, you will then be required to conduct your own (not as a group) Lean Six Sigma project.

If you choose to complete a project:

    • Our Master Black Belt mentors will help you through the whole project cycle to complete your certification project.
    • Our Master Black Belt Instructors will help you before the class to identify a project that will help you to effectively learn the tools and methodologies and earn your Certification in less than three months
    • Our Master Black Belts will be available after the class (for up to six months) to Mentor you through each stage of your project. Our goal is to help you learn quickly (within 3 months) and effectively.

Tools to help you complete your project:

    • A Tollgate (Checklist) and a well defined flowchart for project completion.
    • An SSDSI Master Black Belt to mentor you through your complete certification project cycle.
    • A PowerPoint template with detailed instructions on how to complete your final project presentation
    • A Customized plan and roadmap of how to complete your individual project within three months.

Don't worry, you are in great company!
