Practical information

If you want a Yellow Belt Six Sigma certificate* you have to complete a multiple choice test. The requirement for passing is at least 75% correct answers. The test can be taken multiple times. The exam fee is included in the price. 

*) After passing the exam, a Yellow Belt certificate is issued. The reason for this is that a Green Belt Basic course does not fully satisfy the requirements of a Green Belt certificate (which includes a more thorough review of certain topics as well as the implementation of an improvement project in one's own business).


The course fee is paid by credit/debit card and provides a 12 month access from the date of purchase. The subscription then terminates automatically. At the end of the period, you will be offered a continuation of the subscription. Contact us at post@aksena.com if you want to pay by invoice.
