Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Certification Exam
The black belt exam is an open book test and is governed on the honor system. Candidates can use curriculum materials and notes from the completed course but must complete the exam individually. This is not a group exam. It should be done individually and will be scored in the same manner. This is a pass/fail test and candidates must get at least a 75% score to receive a pass. Candidates have 30 days to complete your exam. A certificate of completion will be generated to you after which you will need to forward to your instructor, Gail Birks so that the Official Certification can be issued.
