How do I earn my certification?

The Six Sigma certificates are issued through the ROI Alliance

ROI offers two levels of certification. The first is a Certificate of Completion. This indicates that you have viewed the entire course and taken the four online assessments and achieved at least an 80% on each. Once you have discussed any missed questions with your instructor, and once your instructor concurs, you will be issued the Certificate of Completion.

The next level is the ROI Alliance Certified Black Belt. A Black Belt certification means that you not only know the information, but that you can take this knowledge and use it in a real situation to bring a cross-functional team to bear to solve a significant problem. To achieve this highly regarded recognition, you need to demonstrate your knowledge of the problem-solving and teaming tools by completing the four online assessments with at least an 80% and guiding a team through the DMAIC to successfully complete a project. Once you review your project results with your instructor, and once they concur, you will be issued your Certified Black Belt.

If you wish, ROI provides a free project tracking service. As you complete projects throughout your career, we will maintain this information in a database. Should you find a need to document the savings you have brought to your teams, we will provide it.

Random Heresy

Applied research the smart way

Although we may use the define, measure, analyze, improve, control (DMAIC) mnemonic to help guide us through our problem solving, that doesn't really give us a lot of specific direction (as I bemoan in my Top 10 Stupid Six Sigma Tricks No. 4). Good experimental design
