As an individual you can become certified through your organisation if it is certified by the Royal Statistical Society (RSS), or directly through the RSS. This is available to delegates that successfully complete either a Six Sigma Green Belt or Six Sigma Black Belt training course. The process will involve submitting a portfolio of evidence demonstrating successful practice. Delegates will also have to attend a half-day assessment centre at RSS in London. For groups this can be arranged on site. Bywater does offer a bespoke training package to guide delegates through this process with one-to-one tutoring from Lean and Six Sigma experts.
A business can be become certified through the RSS 18404 scheme. This will be an assessment of the system the organisation has in place for managing the competence of its key personnel under the standard. A full description of the process can be found here.
