The objective of the Back Belt exam is to provide a review and reinforcement of key concepts covered thru the end of the Black Belt curriculum.  The instructor reviews the questions and answers with participants the sessions prior to the exam. The participants take the exam at the beginning of this session. Upon completion, the instructor reviews the exam with the participants once again as reinforcement. The exam isn’t graded for pass or fail.

The second half of this 1-day session allows participants to present to their classmates on their progress and findings to date for their selected Six Sigma projects. Black Belt certification requires the completion of a project but doesn’t require completion of the project prior to completing the curriculum. Participants have until six months after completion of the Black Belt curriculum to complete and submit their completed projects for approval to receive their Black Belt certification.
