Certified Lean Six Sigma (CLSSYB, CLSSGB, CLSSBB, CLSSMBB)





 

The Certified Lean Six Sigma (CLSS) program is meant for individuals who are currently working on or seeking work on lean six sigma projects. Examinees should have a good background in quality, statistics, and lean philosophies.


Belt Distinctions for the ATMAE Lean Six Sigma Exam

Depending upon the grade earned by the examinee taking this exam, an individual can earn one of three different belt distinctions. If the examinee earns approximately a 40-59% on the exam (cutoff passing scores are evaluated annually and raised or lowered accordingly), then he or she will be classified as a Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt. An examinee earning a score of 60-79% will be classified as a Lean Six Sigma Green Belt. All examinees earning a score of 80% or higher on the exam will be classified as a Lean Six Sigma Black Belt. Individuals who earned an 80% or higher on the exam and would like to be classified as Lean Six Sigma Master Black Belts will have to submit a lean six sigma project that they have completed as well as one from an individual that they are assisting with on a project. All projects must be preapproved by the ATMAE Certification Board before being initiated. Candidates will have up to three years to complete the projects once final approval is given by the ATMAE Certification Board. An additional fee is charged for reviewing the projects. In addition, all projects must have the approval by the candidate’s supervisors and a financial statement must be included with the submission of the project.

 

Composition of the ATMAE Lean Six Sigma Exam

The ATMAE Lean Six Sigma exam covers 12 main content areas and is further divided into 88 subcategories. The exam is divided into two main parts: the first part consists of 100 multiple choice questions that are worth 1 point each. The second part of the exam is composed of 25 multiple choice questions that require an examinee to solve a production or statistical problem that may take several minutes. Because of the time constraints, these questions are worth 4 points each. Therefore, each of the parts is worth 100 points and the combined scores from these two parts are used to calculate the examinee’s final score on the exam. A printout of how well the examinee performed on each of the 12 main areas and 88 subcategories is emailed to them once all their fees have been paid. The emailed printout is a useful instrument to the examinee for reviewing any areas of weakness in case he or she would like to retake the exam to earn a higher belt distinction. Textbooks from which the content for this exam was developed from are listed after the sample questions section of this study guide.
