Certified Lean Six Sigma Green Belt
The IASSC Certified Lean Six Sigma Green Belt™ (ICGB™) is a professional who is well versed in the core to advanced elements of Lean Six Sigma Methodology, who leads improvement projects and / or serves as a team member as a part of more complex improvement projects lead by a Certified Black Belt, typically in a part-time role. A Lean Six Sigma Green Belt possesses a thorough understanding of all aspects of the Lean Six Sigma Method including competence in subject matters contained within the phases of Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control (DMAIC) as defined by the IASSC Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Body of Knowledge™. A Lean Six Sigma Green Belt understands how to implement, perform, interpret and apply Lean Six Sigma at a high level of proficiency.
The IASSC Certified Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Exam™ is a 100 question, closed book, proctored exam with a 3 hour allotted time.
The Exam contains approximately 20 multiple-choice and true/false questions from each major section of the IASSC Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Body of Knowledge and is administered in more than 8,000 Testing Centers located within 165 countries throughout the world and through the IASSC Web-Based On-Demand testing system and by hundreds of IASSC Accredited Providers.
In order to achieve the professional designation of IASSC Certified Green Belt (IASSC-CGB™) from the International Association for Six Sigma Certification, candidates must sit for the IASSC Certified Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Exam and achieve a minimum score of 385 points out of a total potential of 500 points.
There are no prerequisites required in order to sit for the IASSC Certified Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Exam. For more about this see FAQ’s and the IASSC position on knowledge and application. Purchase a Green Belt Exam Voucher for $295 USD through the link provided below.
For those who wish to sit for the exam it is recommended, but not required, that Lean Six Sigma training is obtained through a qualified institution, Lean Six Sigma trainer or corporate program. It is also recommended, although not required, that those sitting for the exam have some degree of real-world Lean Six Sigma work experience and project application experience.
Upon successful achievement, Professionals will receive IASSC Green Belt Certification issued by the International Association for Six Sigma Certification™, the only independent third-party Certification Association within the Lean Six Sigma Industry.
IASSC Certification is recognized perpetually. In accordance with the IASSC Recertification Policy, effective March 1, 2017, a classification system recognizes certifications as “Current” for a period of three years and defines regulations for maintaining such Status.
An IASSC Certified Green Belt is issued a Certificate (Electronic or Hard Copy) along with a Certification Number, added to the Official IASSC Certification Register and granted the right to use the IASSC Certification Marks and Titles; as professional designation which may be used in resumes and public profiles such as LinkedIn, consistent with the IASSC Marks Use Policy.
The IASSC Universally Accepted Lean Six Sigma Body of Knowledge (ILSSBOK) is an embodiment of the consensus of what industry expects of a Lean Six Sigma Black Belt, Lean Six Sigma Green Belt and a Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt.
The ILSSBOK is the result of research that was conducted over a two year period with the assistance of the leading industry publication house. The goal of this project was to characterize the standard knowledge requirements that are universally expected of a Lean Six Sigma Black Belt, Lean Six Sigma Green Belt and a Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt. With input from 1000′s of Deployment Leaders, Master Blacks Belts, Black Belts and Green Belts from 100′s of companies and industry sectors the ILSSBOK is truly the Voice of the Industry.
This is a significant breakthrough, for the first time in the history of the Lean Six Sigma the industry itself has defined what it deems is as a relevant and practical version of the knowledge expectations of a Lean Six Sigma Black Belt, Green Belt and Yellow Belt. Today, IASSC continues this research and accepts ongoing industry feedback to ensure the standards continue to accurately represent the market expectations.
The ILSSBOK consists of five primary sections each of which is broken into sub-categories. This Body of Knowledge serves as the basis for what many of today’s leading Lean Six Sigma companies consider to be standard and expected knowledge requirements of a Lean Six Sigma Black Belt, Lean Six Sigma Green Belt and Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt. This body of knowledge also serves as the foundation upon which IASSC Certification examinations are built.
The IASSC Certified Black Belt Exam is constructed based on the topics within the Body of Knowledge listed below. Questions may test up to the complexity level of “Analyze” as defined by Levels of Cognition based on Bloom’s Taxonomy – Revised (2001). More about Blooms Taxonomy may be found in the FAQ’s section.
