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. Create a Free Trial Account to see example videos.
  • 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.
