How do I access the course?

You can access the course anywhere you can get on the Internet — simply log in to the portal from your computer, tablet, or phone.

Will I receive certification when I'm done with this course?

No. Although you will receive a certificate of completion, official Black Belt Certification is a separate process. You must purchase certification separately from any online training course. For more information, visit the Black Belt certification page.

How long does Black Belt training take?

You have 365 days to complete the course, which represents about 140 hours of training, not including any external project work you may choose to complete.

Are there prerequisites to this course?

No. Unlike other online providers, we do not require you to take any prerequisite course – Green Belt or other – prior to your Black Belt training. Our Black Belt course includes all of the material you would learn as a Lean Six Sigma Green Belt. If you have already taken MoreSteam's Green Belt course, contact us to request an upgrade to Black Belt.

Do I need a project to complete the training?

No. We do not require a project for training, though we strongly recommend that you accompany the coursework with a meaningful project. A real-world project will significantly enhance the learning experience because you can use it to directly practice the concepts and tools as you complete the course. Successful project work is also required for any certification process.

Do you offer pricing discounts for groups of trainees and deployments?

Of course! Many of our larger customers send tens to hundreds of employees through Black Belt training. Please contact us directly to discuss your specific needs.
