6 Reasons to Choose Gemba Academy’s Certification Program

For those inter­est­ed in achiev­ing Black Belt cer­ti­fi­ca­tion, the ques­tion is why choose Gem­ba Academy?

  1. Recog­ni­tion. Gem­ba Acad­e­my has served thou­sands of Lean & Six Sig­ma cus­tomers around the world.
  2. Results That Mat­ter. The most sig­nif­i­cant proof” of a suc­cess­ful cer­ti­fi­ca­tion isn’t a piece of paper. Instead, it’s results deliv­ered through an excel­lent project. This is why our pri­ma­ry goal for all cer­ti­fi­ca­tion can­di­dates is that they solve sig­nif­i­cant prob­lems while also demon­strat­ing com­pe­ten­cy in the DMA­IC methodology.
  3. Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion Roadmap. After for­mal live or online train­ing, many prac­ti­tion­ers strug­gle with the ques­tion, What do I do now?” This won’t be an issue for Gem­ba Acad­e­my Black Belt can­di­dates since we’ll guide you, step by step, from project selec­tion to completion.
  4. You’ll Nev­er Walk Alone. If you have ques­tions or sim­ply need advice, a Gem­ba Acad­e­my Lean & Six Sig­ma expert will be avail­able by phone or email. Onsite sup­port is also avail­able at an addi­tion­al cost.
  5. Prac­ti­cal Train­ing. Learn­ing Lean & Six Sig­ma can be intim­i­dat­ing, espe­cial­ly when sta­tis­ti­cal con­cepts are being taught. Gem­ba Acad­e­my has care­ful­ly designed the School of Six Sig­ma such that any­one can learn the tools and con­cepts. You don’t need to be a sta­tis­tics expert.
  6. Real Prac­ti­tion­ers. Gem­ba Acad­e­my was found­ed and is oper­at­ed by real Lean & Six Sig­ma prac­ti­tion­ers. We are not aca­d­e­mics who learned our craft from text­books. Instead, we have walked the walk and are now excit­ed to teach you every­thing we’ve learned.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Are you affiliated with a University? No, by design, we are not. We know, from real world experience, what Lean & Six Sigma practitioners need to solve real world (not textbook) problems and have designed the School of Six Sigma accordingly. Put another way, we are only interested in developing Lean & Six Sigma practitioners who are able to solve problems quickly and efficiently.
  • Is there a universally accepted Six Sigma Certification Body of Knowledge? No. There are many organizations that have laid out suggestions of what they believe a Six Sigma Black Belt should know but there is no single authority on the subject. With this said, due to the vast amount of experience within Gemba Academy, you can rest assured the content we deliver is comprehensive, accurate, and easy to understand.
  • Should I seek Certification? This is a personal question and impossible for us to answer. But, from our own experience, achieving Certification can be highly rewarding and extremely value added on a personal and professional level. Additionally, the value you deliver to your company from project work should return your training investment within months.
  • What style of videos do you produce? Our videos are conversational in nature. Additionally, our trainers are real practitioners, so we don't teach using the “voice over cartoons” approach.
  • Can videos be played on smartphones & tablets? Yes. Our videos are compatible with iOS and Android devices.
  • Do I need to complete my Green Belt before I apply for a Black Belt? No, our step-by-step Black Belt program can certify anyone, regardless of previous certifications. Master Black Belt candidates require prior Black Belt certification.
