My Experience Getting Six Sigma Green Belt Certified
Back in 2010, I quit my BPO job just to start a restaurant business using the money I saved working for two years. My business venture went south and I went back to the workforce in the same year.
Back then, I saw Six Sigma Green Belt as a ticket to high paying jobs, which are usually found in the booming outsourcing industry. During that time, I didn’t know that I will use what I learned in Six Sigma Green Belt in project involvements until recently. Through MST Consulting and Training Services, I enrolled in the Institute of Sigma Learning (ISL), which is based in Hyderabad, India. (Click here to visit ISL website)
I took the International Quality Federation (IQF) Six Sigma Green Belt Certification Course to reinforce my knowledge of statistics. I thought I could add some robust statistical tools and techniques in my professional bag of tricks. However, I thought that the concepts on the Six Sigma mostly applies for manufacturing and for repetitive service businesses like the ones in the outsourcing industry.
Though I completed all the quizzes and cases in the Institute of Sigma Learning Six Sigma Green Belt modules, I did not take the IQF Certification Exam.
I learned all the concepts and learned the tricks of the trade of this Six Sigma Green Belt Certification Course. I have no use for the certification since I now work for a financial institution.
