Lean Six Sigma can benefit almost any business, but if you are looking to become Lean Six Sigma certified, it is important that you select a training provider that fits your needs. What is the best Lean Six Sigma certification program? The following questions are designed for YOU to ask a prospective program provider to help you decide if they are right for you.
- Tell me about your organization’s Lean Six Sigma background and training experience?
- Is your Lean Six Sigma program accredited?
- Are you affiliated with any associations?
- Does your Lean Six Sigma program include a refund policy?
- What is the format for training? (Reading Materials, Pre-Recorded Sessions, Webinars, PowerPoint, etc.)
- What are the learning objectives for the training? Do you apply Bloom’s Taxonomy?
- Do I have to attend scheduled sessions or is the training self-paced?
- What is your policy regarding Instructor Support? How does it work? What is the cost?
- What is the first-time pass ratio for the certification exam?
- What is the cost and length of training?
- Are there any extra costs after I enroll in training? (Exam, Course materials, Software, Instructor Support, etc.)
- What are the certification requirements?
In addition, be EXTREMELY clear about your needs. For example, you may need:
- Learning Disability Support

Asking these questions BEFORE you enroll helps you feel confident allowing you to move forward with the business of building trust and realizing your objectives.
