Free Six Sigma White Belt Certification

A Council for Six Sigma Certification (CSSC) Certified Six Sigma White Belt is an individual that has been provided, and has demonstrated an understanding of the most basic level of the Six Sigma Methodology. The White Belt Certification designation also reflects knowledge by the individual of the basic definition, history, and structure of the discipline. This understanding provides a solid awareness of who is involved in the actual Six Sigma implementation, and their roles within an organization.

2 Different Paths to Certification

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

Individuals who are using one of our free Self-Study Guides, either independently or in conjunction with a training provider, can instead 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 of 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 White Belt “Body of Knowledge.”

What to Expect

The “Standard Exam” Six Sigma White Belt Certification exam consists of 30 questions.  It is non-timed and is an open-book format examination (we encourage the use of the free Self-Study Guide, issued by The Council for Six Sigma Certification, while taking the exam). 

The Exam consists of multiple-choice and true/false questions from the major sections of CSSC Six Sigma White Belt “Body of Knowledge.”  The Official CSSC Six Sigma White Belt Certification exam can be taken either online (utilizing the link below) or at designated testing centers located worldwide.  The examination assessment fee for this path is currently waived and is being offered at no cost.  Applicants have an unlimited number of attempts to successfully pass the exam with the required minimum score within 12 months of registering (see below).

Certification Requirements

To successfully obtain the professional designation of a CSSC Certified Six Sigma White Belt (CSSC-CSSWB) issued by The Council for Six Sigma Certification, candidates must successfully complete our CSSC Six Sigma White Belt Certification Exam and achieve a score of 56 points (or higher) out of a total 80 possible points.

There are no prerequisites for taking the CSSC Six Sigma White Belt Certification Exam. 

There is no project requirement for this level of Certification.  

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 already proficient in the Six Sigma White 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 White 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 a professional certification?

Candidates who would like to obtain a more recent certification date can always resit for the certification exam at any time.

Upon completion of the requirements, individuals are issued a Six Sigma White 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.

> Register for the Standard Exam

The “Self-Study Exams” option is a flexible option for candidates who would like to have the ability to obtain the various levels of our standard certifications (White Belt, Yellow Belt, Green Belt, and Black Belt) as they progress; without incurring any additional examination fees.

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

Simply put, for each chapter of the Self-Study Guide, there is a corresponding exam.

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.

The Certification milestones are as follows:

  • Chapter Exams 1-3: Six Sigma White Belt Certification
  • Chapter Exams 1-11: Six Sigma Yellow Belt Certification
  • Chapter Exams 1-24: Six Sigma Green Belt Certification
