SIX SIGMA BLACK BELT CERTIFICATION
Six Sigma Black Belt Certification is a credential that demonstrates advanced knowledge and skills in Six Sigma methodologies and tools. The certification exam is based on the Six Sigma Body of Knowledge and requires a thorough comprehension of Six Sigma concepts and practices.
A person who profoundly comprehends the whole Six Sigma Body of Knowledge is a Certified Six Sigma Black Belt Certification (CSSC). Furthermore, this person is well-versed in the theories and principles of Six Sigma (as well as the related systems and technologies). In addition, the Black Belt Certification credential indicates that the bearer has a solid grasp of team dynamics, leadership, and how to delegate tasks to team members effectively. Last but not least, this person thoroughly comprehends the DMAIC model in line with Six Sigma principles, a foundational understanding of lean enterprise concepts, and the ability to recognise “non-value-added” processes quickly.
Two Alternative Certification Paths
There are two ways to get a Six Sigma Black Belt Certified through the Council for Sigma Certification (CSSC). Those who feel they have a solid comprehension of the subjects included in the “Body of Knowledge” for the Black Belt Certification and have already completed training can take our usual thorough Exam.
Instead of taking a single, extensive, comprehensive exam, those using one of our free Self-Study Guides can take multiple short exams as they work through the various sections on their own or in cooperation with a training provider.
We will grant our official Certification (s) via either route.
We believe the Multiple Exam path is the best choice for applicants who would like to lower their overall examination/certification fees and experts seeking a thorough refresher and experience with the coach.
PERSONALLY, WHO SHOULD CERTIFY?
As an expert in explaining Six Sigma concepts, philosophies, and related systems and equipment, a Black Belt should be able to lead a team, comprehend team dynamics, and delegate tasks to team members.
According to Six Sigma principles, black belts possess a comprehensive understanding of every facet of the define, measure, analyse, improve, and control (DMAIC) model. They can recognise non-value-added components and operations, understand lean enterprise ideas, and know how to use particular technologies.

The Six Sigma Black Belt Certification CSSC Exam has no prerequisites. You will have a year to pass the Exam once the examination assessment cost has been paid.
This Certification has no project requirements. But this Certification is a prerequisite to seeking our Level II Black Belt Certification—which has a project requirement.
To pass the official CSSC certification exam, we advise anyone interested in obtaining Six Sigma training to do so through an approved training provider or by reading the free self-study guide provided by The Council for Six Sigma Certification. We strongly advise applicants who need to brush up on the Six Sigma Black Belt methodology to go over the accompanying “Body of Knowledge” and the free self-study guide.

Our certifications are still valid. We firmly believe that certificates that call for “renewals” do not help individuals; they merely help certification companies make more money. As stated otherwise, a Master of Business degree is perpetual, so why should your professional Certification be?
Applicants can always retake the certification exam at any time to get a more recent certification date (often for less money than a provider would ask for a “renewal”).
People receive an electronic Six Sigma Black Belt Certification after fulfilling the prerequisites. The holder of a certification is added to the official register of the Council for Six Sigma Certification, and each Certification has a verified certification number.
