Maintaining Certification

Why get Recertified?

A 6sigmastudy™ certificate should be renewed within three calendar years of its issue date. As the Six Sigma field is maturing, it is important for practitioners to be abreast of current and latest innovations in the field. Maintaining a certificate enables a student to demonstrate his/her commitment to continuing learning. It also demonstrates the student’s knowledge of Six Sigma to employers, peers, and colleagues.

A student can renew his/her certificate in the following ways:

  1. Recertification examination: A Recertification exam is not as extensive as the Certification exam and consists of only half the exam questions. A student can pass the Recertification exam with just a few hours of study.
  2. 6sigmastudy certification examination: A student passing any other 6sigmastudy™ certification exam implies that he/she has reviewed the latest concepts from the 6sigmastudy™ online course and fulfils the criteria for maintaining certification.

Students can purchase Recertification exam or 6sigmastudy™ certification exam from an Authorized Training Partner (A.T.P.) in their region to get discounts and additional Certification/Recertification options. Students also have the option to purchase directly from 6sigmastudy™.
