As such, Carol Ann Preston has reached a significant level of professional recognition, indicating a proficiency in and a comprehension of Six Sigma principles and practices. Individuals who earn this certification are allowed to use “ASQ SSGB” on their business cards and professional correspondence. “ASQ provides certification as a way to provide formal recognition to professionals who have demonstrated an understanding of, and a commitment to, quality techniques and practices in their job and career,” said Stephen Hacker, ASQ chair. “This is a great accomplishment and, although not a formal registration or licensure, it represents a high level of peer recognition.” In order to sit for the Six Sigma Green Belt (SSGB) examination, an individual must have three years of work experience related to the Body of Knowledge. Certified SSGBs apply tools and techniques from the DMAIC model (define, measure, analyze, improve and control) while working on Six Sigma projects. Since 1968, when the first ASQ certification examination was administered, more than 190,000 individuals have taken the path to reaching their goal of becoming ASQ-certified in their field or profession, including many of who have attained more than one designation.
