Black Belt Certification – Way Forward

After taking our course, if you fulfill our Certification criteria below, you will receive Canopus Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Certification that is widely accepted in Industry and we are an Accredited Training Organization of IASSC.

At any time in future, you can additionally enhance your credibility as a Certified Lean Six Sigma  Professional by appearing for certification evaluations of IASSC ( or ASQ (

IASSC™ Accreditation does not constitute its’ approval or recognition of our own lean six sigma certification program. The only method to earn an IASSC certification is to successfully sit for and pass an official IASSC certification™ exam. We do upon request administer or provide access to IASSC Certification exams for an additional cost of $395 towards exam fees payable to IASSC.


  • Green Belt Certification
  • Industry or Domain exposure: The participant should have sufficient exposure to his/her domain or industry, It is advisable to have a minimum of 8 years of industry work experience
  • Pass Pre-Test for admission to Black Belt Course. As Black Belt is an advanced program, without active and hands-on Green Belt BoK, it would be highly difficult to cope with Black Belt BoK

Canopus Black Belt Certification Criteria

  • Completion of BB courseware
  • Advanced Six Sigma online assessment\Complete 1 BB Project and get sign-off from the internal sponsor (Or) Submit Artefacts as a justification and defense of application knowledge. (Artefacts refers to application of any 1 or 2 BB BoK Tools to real life or 1 simulated scenario such as situation based cases provided by CBMG.)


  • The default access duration to the course for the participant will be specified at the time of registration is 120 days.
  • However, course validity is for 1 year from date of registration. Hence if required, candidates can request to extend the access during the 1 year period from the date of registration.


120 days access with 1-year validity to Online Six Sigma Black Belt course + Canopus Certification is Rs.24,999 + 18% GST
