Six Sigma Green Belt Certification

A Council for Six Sigma Certification (CSSC) Certified Six Sigma Green Belt is an individual that possesses a thorough understanding of enhanced problem-solving skills, with an emphasis on the DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control) model. The Green Belt Certification designation also reflects the knowledge by the individual to serve as a trained team member within his or her function-specific area of the organization. This focus allows the Green Belt to work on small, carefully defined Six Sigma projects, requiring less than a Black Belt’s full-time commitment to Six Sigma throughout the organization.

2 Different Paths to Certification

The Council for Sigma Certification (CSSC) offers 2 different paths to earning a Six Sigma Green Belt Certification.  Individuals who have already received training, and feel that they have significant understanding of the topics covered in the Green Belt Certification “Body of Knowledge,” can simply sit for our standard comprehensive examination.  

Individuals who are instead using one of our free Self-Study Guides, either independently or in conjunction with a training provider, can sit for several short exams as they progress through the different sections (as opposed to a single large comprehensive exam).

As an added benefit, those seeking the second option towards Certification would be able to obtain the various levels of our standard certifications (White Belt, Yellow Belt, Green Belt, and Black Belt) as they progress through their certification journey, without incurring any additional examination fees.

Either path will award our official certification(s). Either path is an open-book and non-timed examination format.  

We feel the Multiple Exam path to be the most beneficial option for those who are newer to the methodology, professionals looking for a solid refresher, or those candidates who would like to reduce their overall examination/certification costs.

In Summary:

Path 1: Ideal for candidates:

  • Who have already received training and feel that they have a significant understanding the “Body of Knowledge.”
  • Who are only seeking a single level of certification.

Path 2: Ideal for candidates:

  • Who are utilizing one of our free Self-Study Guides either independently or in conjunction with a training provider.
  • Looking to earn the various levels of “Belts” as they progress without incurring additional examination fees.
  • That feel they may need more than 3 attempts to pass the examination.

To learn the specifics of the different paths, please select the appropriate tab below:

The “Standard Exam” is a single comprehensive exam, intended for those who are already familiar with the Six Sigma Green Belt “Body of Knowledge.”

The Exam consists of multiple-choice and true/false questions from the major sections of CSSC Six Sigma Green Belt “Body of Knowledge.”  The Official CSSC Six Sigma Green Belt Certification exam can be taken either online (utilizing the link below) or at designated testing centers located worldwide.  The current examination assessment fee is $250.00 USD Limited Time: $119!  Learn More  (other major currency options are available during payment).  Applicants will have 3 attempts to successfully pass the exam with the required minimum score (see below).  If unsuccessful after 3 attempts, the student would need to pay the examination assessment fee again.

Certification Requirements

To successfully obtain the professional designation of a CSSC Certified Six Sigma Green Belt (CSSC-CSSGB) issued by The Council for Six Sigma Certification, candidates must successfully complete our CSSC Six Sigma Green Belt Certification Exam and achieve a score of 280 points (or higher) out of a total 400 possible points.

There are no prerequisites for taking the CSSC Six Sigma Green Belt Certification Exam. Once the examination assessment fee is paid, applicants will have 1 year to successfully pass the exam.

There is no project requirement for this Certification.  However, this certification is a prerequisite for any individual wishing to pursue our Level II Green Belt Certification, which does have a project participation requirement.

Exam Preparation

We recommend that any individual wanting to successfully pass the official CSSC certification exam, obtain Six Sigma training either through a qualified training provider or by studying the free self-study guide issued by The Council for Six Sigma Certification.  For those candidates that feel the need to re-familiarize themselves with the Six Sigma Green Belt methodology, we highly recommend that they review both the free self-study guide and the corresponding “Body of Knowledge”.

Awarding of Certification

After successfully fulfilling the certification requirements, candidates will receive an Official CSSC Six Sigma Green Belt Certification issued by The Council for Six Sigma Certification, the most respected accrediting organization in the Six Sigma industry.

Our certifications have no expiration date.  We strongly feel that certifications that require “renewals” only serve to increase the profits of the certification providers instead of benefiting the individual.  Or put another way, a Master’s Degree in Business does not expire… why would your professional certification?

Candidates who would like to obtain a more recent certification date can always resit for the certification exam at any time (often for less money than a provider would charge for a “renewal”).

Upon completion of the requirements, individuals are issued a Six Sigma Green Belt Certification in an electronic form.  All certifications contain a verifiable certification number and the certification holder is added to the Council for Six Sigma Certification Official Register.

This alternative path to certification is designed for candidates utilizing our free Self-Study guides (either independently or through a training provider) or candidates seeking a more comprehensive path towards their Certification goals.

What to Expect

Each time the individual completes a chapter of the Self-Study guide, he or she will take a short (10-15 question) online exam.  The exams are available to be taken online 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  They are both open-book and non-timed.

After multiple exams are successfully passed (requiring a minimum score of 70% on each exam), a new level of Six Sigma Certification is awarded.
