Black Belt certification

Certified Lean Six Sigma Black Belts are in high demand due to their extensive knowledge and understanding of process improvement. Just like an MBA it’s important to obtain a recognisable qualification from a reputable provider so choose us rather than a poor-quality cheap alternative.  Invest in your career and self.

Our certification process follows industry best practice requiring passing an exam and then applying your Lean Six Sigma learning through completion of 2 projects. Once you certify you will obtain a certification as a Lean Six Sigma Black Belt, 170 CPD points to prove professional learning, and a ‘Certified Change Management’ certificate.

100% Effective certification is included in the price and requires completion of our exam and successfully presenting two completed DMAIC projects. However, some delegates may wish to get their qualification endorsed by CSSC. The only method to earn a CSSC certification is to successfully sit and pass an official CSSC certification™ exam.

To help you complete the projects, and certify, you’ll get 12 month’s access to our eLearning Lean Six Sigma Black Course, coaching with your dedicated Master Black Belt and unlimited email support.
