Pay as you go - Lean Yellow Belt Exam

Yellow Belt Certification exam


The yellow 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. The internet is not considered to be part of the resources available for the test. 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 70% score to receive a pass. Candidates have two (2) calendar weeks 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 once your project is complete.

The exam is online and will be automatically scored when you have completed all three sections. Noteworthy is that the questions on the online exam are in random order in the respective sections in order to maintain the integrity of the process. You will have two chances to answer a question. Afterwards, you will be locked out of the question and must proceed to the next query. So you are encouraged to take your time in answering each question.

The exam contains three sections...easy, intermediate and advanced. Candidates must get the following number of questions correct from each section to obtain a passing score.
Easy 27 questions out of 39 questions
Intermediate 24 questions out of 34 questions
Advanced 13 questions out of 18 questions

Questions are comprised of True/False, Multiple Choice, “Fill” in the Blank, Short Answer, and diagram/tool recognition.

When the test is completed, Candidates will submit their exam certificate of completion electronically to Gail P. Birks c/o cma@cma-ent.com. Include in the file name your name and date of submission and belt. In the email subject box type your “name – yellow belt exam submission.”
