Is the Black Belt Certification Test Difficult?
Certification exams through the Management and Strategy Institute are designed to test your fundamental understanding of a subject. The online Six Sigma Black Belt certification exam is an “open note” exam, meaning you may use any notes you’ve taken while studying. The exam is timed, so you will not be able to look up answers to questions while taking the test. You will not have access to the online study material while taking the exam and you may not stop the exam once it has begun. It is very important that you have a solid understanding of Six Sigma Black Belt principles before attempting the exam or you will not pass.
How in-depth is the training?
The Six Sigma Black Belt certification course, by definition, is a high-level certification. It is designed to give you a solid understanding of most facets of Six Sigma. It does not require a project to complete. This professional development course was designed to teach someone with little knowledge of Six Sigma the basic skills needed to function as a Black Belt on a Six Sigma team. All required training material is included with the cost of the exam. Many executive jobs today require that their employees have at least a basic understanding of Six Sigma.
