Just want to ask about six sigma ... I recently completed both Green Belt and Black Belt training, reading related articles I cannot find anything that mentions certification exam as a requirement to make me CSSGB or CSSBB; the only thing I can find is that its my choice to take an exam offered by ASQ as an adder meaning should I take and pass their exam I can place CSSGB/CSSBB (ASQ). But what if I don't take the ASQ exam can I still put CSSGB/CSSBB as a title?

Example only, Engr. Poncio Pilato, PEng MBA CSSGB CSSBB ...

Re: Six Sigma Question

I could make up and print an SSBB certificate for you right now (for a fee, of course :bigwave:), and you could proudly add that initialism to your title. Whether your claim would mean anything to anyone other than you and me is another matter. There may or may not be worthwhile results from adding the ASQ certification, but that's for you to decide.

Well, the "C" in CSSGB and CSSBB represents "Certified." I'm certain any number of individuals and organizations would be happy to take your money in exchange for a piece of paper that says they "certify" you as a [whatever], but the specific initials are nowhere near as important as which entity stands behind them. In the ASQ corner, the designation usually is presented as a mark of achievement, not merely as a consequence of taking a course. Do you meet these minimums?
Six Sigma Black Belt Understands Six Sigma philosophies and principles, including the supporting systems and tools. Demonstrates team leadership and understands all aspects of the DMAIC model in accordance with Six Sigma principles. Two completed projects with signed affidavits, or one completed project with signed affidavit and three years of work experience in one or more areas of the Six Sigma Black Belt Body of Knowledge. You do NOT need to be a Certified Six Sigma Green Belt.


:topic:Not to be crass, but many employers I am familiar with are pretty persnickity about the source and value of MBA degrees and tend to make distinctions depending on where they were obtained. (An MBA from Harvard, University of Chicago, or Stanford seems to elicit more respect than one from Phoenix University.) Similarly, PEng is usually a designation conferred by a governmental body and casual adoption of the designation without the official conferral can bring nasty repercussions.

typically, going thru training doesn't meet the minimum bar for 'certification'. you are safe putting "six sigma black belt trained" on your resume. certification usually comes after completing a number of projects depending on the certification source. not all certification bodies use a written exam as part of the process.
