    Hello,

    I work in manufacturing as a machinist, in a plant that uses six sigma/lean practices in our day to day operations. I’m not in management nor a supervisor, but I’m interested in learning more about improving the overall process of our work more beyond just the running of a machine. Having a better understanding of the deeper details and why management does things a certain way I feel could only benefit you as a worker.

    My question is if any of you think its worth the certification, and is there any benefit to it in the future if one day I change jobs or decide to move into the management side of things?

    Thank you!

    The short answer is, yes.  I’m glad that you appreciate the value of the learning.  Certification confirms that you’ve attained that level, as opposed to just thinking you have.  Yellow belt is usually certified internally by your employer and is not recognized elsewhere, but it’s still something you can claim on your resume.

    I would do it.  If they have something like a green belt–you’ll learn more.
