    We are debating whether there should be an exam for company GB certification.  Can you advise whether or not your company requires an exam for GB certification? 
    Thanks!

    While GE Money had a GB program of certification they did require the candidates to pass a test.
    I’m not sure how usfull they are but as long as they’re open book your testing their knowledge and not their memory which always best. At the worst they will one indicator of how effective your training is.

    Hi,
    I totally agree with that point. An exam provides a feedback to the trainer but only if its conducted within a stipulated time frame.
    An examination on submission of a project or before surely gives all certified Green Belts a double edged reason to feel proud of their accomplishment.
    Best Wishes

    My experience is that we utilize oral exams.   We find that it is not possible to control written exams in any real time basis AND PLAGERISM RUNS RAMPANT INTERNALLY IN ORGANIZATIONS.
    GE began using online training and exams and it did not work out very well in my experience.

    Those parts of GE still doing SS use a on-line exam. This works well as it asks questions from a large base of questions so you never sure of what questions you are going to get and only the central group knows all the questions are in there.
    This works well but as Ron says if you had paper versions you’d have to keep changing them and doing them in groups.
    On courses some pre-training was on-line/electronic but the main parts are class room based.
