The Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Certification is a professional who can explain Six Sigma philosophies and principles, including supporting systems and tools. A Black Belt should demonstrate team leadership, understand team dynamics and assign team member roles and responsibilities.

Black belts have a thorough understanding of all aspects of the define, measure, analyze, improve and control (DMAIC) model in accordance with Six Sigma principles. They have basic knowledge of lean enterprise concepts, are able to identify non-value-added elements and activities and are able to use specific tools.


Here are the experience and exam specifics for the Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Certification.

Work Experience

  1. Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Certification
  2. Six Sigma Black Belt requires two completed Lean six sigma projects OR
  3. One completed Lean six sigma project with three years of work experience in one or more areas of the Lean Six Sigma

Examples of projects that qualify:

  • Manufacturing product defect reduction.
  • Human resources recruitment cycle time reduction.
  • Reduced accounts payable invoice processing costs.
  • Reduced Manufacturing machine setup time.

Projects that do not qualify:

  • Prepackaged or classroom exercise that are mock, or simulated projects that were previously completed and/or that do not include actual “hands on” work.
  • No real organization or business unit; no current problem or cost benefit.
  • Basic product improvement projects not associated with process improvements.
  • Software maintenance or remediation without detailed process measurements.
  • Any project without measured before-and-after cost benefits.

Work experience must be in a full time, paid role. Paid intern, co-op or any other course work cannot be applied towards the work experience requirement.
