International vs. Local Six Sigma Certification Providers – Important Insight to Be Aware Of

When it comes to Six Sigma certification and training, it is essential to know as much as you can, prior to even searching for a training provider that might be well-suited to the specific requirements and expectations you may have from what the coursework will have to offer.

The search for new avenues for international certification should, therefore, focus primarily on the actual standards required by the international companies and corporations you’d like to work for. In many cases, these will match the high standards offered by local coursework training providers, whether you are interested in Six Sigma basics, or a more advanced Green or Black Belt Six Sigma certification program.

Approaching International Certification

International certification is often required by corporations that operate both locally and internationally, or by businesses and employers looking to recruit Six Sigma specialists for overseas work.

While, in most cases, advanced level Six Sigma training programs offer the option for international certification, this is not always the case, nor is it always actually required.

Candidates interested in international certification will need to make sure that the organization that has created the certification program, as well as the program itself, are recognized worldwide – or at the very least in the countries that the candidate is interested to find work in.

The training and certification company in question will need to be capable of eliminating the barriers set by differing process improvement quality standards required by emerging markets in the global industry,while making sure candidates receive the most thorough and comprehensive training material they can use on a practical basis.

Also, when you’re looking for the best certification providers, it would be a good course of action to research the company in question, and ensure that they are able to keep up with the dynamic changes in the quality improvement process, as it is viewed in its continual evolution at an international level. This will ensure you gain access to the most practical coursework relevant for obtaining the ideal level of competence required by the industry you are aiming for.

Quality Training vs. Technicalities

Six Sigma training is not necessarily limited to production. It can be related to any particular department of a company that has any effect on quality improvement, including management, waste reduction, product design and customer support.

Of course, while companies differ greatly from one another, the steps of the production process or design of a specific type of product, as well as the provision of services, marketing and management plans and all the other factors that Six Sigma quality standards may touch upon are very similar even in the case of international corporations.

While the difference may require, in some cases, that the candidate trained by a Six Sigma institution that operates within the home country of the corporation, or offers training accounting for the highest international standards, this isn’t always the case. It is often far more important to keep track of the difference between Six Sigma training requirements and technicalities in selecting the right type of coursework to provide you with the particular skills you will actually need.
