These AWYL Activities are thoughtfully designed by the Industry Experts to allow the Learners to gain practical exposure through Role-Plays, Calculations, Research Tasks, Data Collection, Presentations, etc. One has to perform similar activities in any Six Sigma Project and hence they are considered as Equivalent to a Formal Six Sigma Project.

Further, these AWYL Activities are assessed by a Team of Experts to provide their Personalised Feedbacks & Follow-ups ensuring Tangible Improvement.

Each AWYL Activity carries a weightage of 5 points to be considered for Final Certification.

After completing all 42 chapters, the trainee needs to appear for the Proficiency Test which is of Multiple-Choice Pattern carrying 1 point each. Total points for the Test for Black Belt are 140.

Depending upon the consolidated scores out of Toal 350 Points in AWYL Activities & the Test, a Grade (A+, A, B+, B, C & D) is automatically assigned to a Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Functional Certificate, which can be generated immediately in PDF format after the Test. You can request physical copy of the certificate by paying a nominal amount.
