What is the FAST-TRACK Program
The FAST-TRACK program is an option to let a student start from “ground zero” (not presently possessing a Lean Six Sigma Green Belt certification) to progress to a Lean Six Sigma Black Belt quickly (normally within three months with the project option)
If you presently have a Lean Six Sigma Green Belt certification from an accredited organization then you do not need to use the FAST-TRACK program. Go to our “Lean Six Sigma Training” page and enroll in our of our Lean Six Sigma Black Belt public courses..
How do I FAST-TRACK to a Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Certification?
There is normally a project requirement for the Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Certification course, but we will waive the project requirement if you sign up for both the Lean Six Sigma Green Belt course and the Lean Six Sigma Black Belt course. This means that you will only have to complete a single project after your Lean Six Sigma Black Belt course (versus two projects … one after your Lean Six Sigma Green Belt and one after your Lean Six Sigma Black Belt course).
Can I Skip the Project Requirement for Certification?
Yes. You can skip the project requirement for certification and choose to certify through successfully passing an exam.
The quickest path to Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Certification when you are starting from “ground zero” (having no previous Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Certification) is to first complete both the 5 day Lean Six Sigma Green Belt course, the 5 day Lean Six Sigma Black Belt course and the required 140 hours of course work.
Is the IASSC Test Option a SHORT CUT to Certification ?
Does this mean I can potentially get certified as a Lean Six Sigma Black Belt in 3 weeks by:
- Attending the 5 day Lean Six Sigma Green Belt course (Week #1)
- Attending the 5 day Lean Six Sigma Black Belt course (Week #2)
- Passing the the IASSC Lean Six Sigma Black Belt (Week #3)
NO! … The Lean Six Sigma Green Belt course and the Lean Six Sigma Black Belt course each requires a minimum workload of:
- 20 hours of pre-classroom preparation (when you register you will receive the pre-classroom preparation requirements)
- 40 hours of in classroom work
- 20 hours of post classroom work (for either the project option or the IASSC test option)
Total time required for the FAST TRACK to a Lean Six Sigma Black Belt is a minimum of 140 hours.
Once you have completed the two courses and the 140 hours preparation, you can then sign up for the Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Certification exam through the IASSC (International Association for Six Sigma Certification). Once you pass the IASSC exam, you will then be a certified Lean Six Sigma Black Belt through the IASSC.
If you choose the IASSC test, as a certification option we still invite you to let us mentor you through completion of a Lean Six Sigma Black Belt project. The fee for your Lean Six Sigma Green Belt and Black Belt course includes up to 6 months of project mentoring from our Master Black Belts.
