    I successfully completed a course for  green belt certification.  I have my certificate where it states that I passed the course.  However, the  black belt instructor, Mike Link, did not sign my certificate.  Instead, it was signed by a high ranking VP at my company. 
    Is my certificate valid without the signature of my black belt instructor? 
    Is there a site where I can go to look and see if I am indeed certified?
    Thank you!:)

    Mary,
    Congratulations, on completion of your GB certification.
    Your certificate is as valid as any other GB certification
    Unless your company has website for posting all thier certified six sigma employee’s, NO
    Just for my own curiosity, have you completed or even started any projects yet?

    Hi Chad,
     
    Thank you for answering my questions.  I was curious as to whether or not my certificate could be validated outside of my company. 
     
    I have not started any formal projects for my company since completing the green belt course.
     
    Have a great day Chad!

    I passed the green belt course and received a certificate stating as such.  However, the certificate was not signed by the black belt instructor of the course.

    Belt certification can be given out like diploma mills. Certification should be tied to a completed project.

    Mary, you sound like a nice person. People can be a bit cruel on here. Most in the six sigma community would agree that if you’ve never done a project then you are green belt trained, regardless of your certificate. Put it this way, if you were to interview with me for a job, stating that you are a certified green belt I would begin to ask you about your project, you would have no answer and I would end the interview. I couldn’t really care who signed your certificate. If your looking to move on in your career go find a dmaic project and apply your learning.

    Thank you for your response.  I understand and agree.  It is nice to know that there are people out there, nice people, that take time out of their busy lives to help someone.
    Have a wonderful evening!

    You  deserve  a  “Certificate  of  Achievement”.
    To  be  certified  you  need  to  sit  for  a  professional Exam.and to  pass  the  Exam.
    Good Luck
    Just  my  opinion

    Please explain what you mean by full credit…….Assume you are saying she is to champion and be leader of a project? In my past experience Green Belts have been Project “Owners” but a black belt or Master Black Belt was the champion/leader. Although project responsibility was on the green belt, ultimate responsibility was on the champion.
