Best way to go about earning the following Certifications?

    I already earned my Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt from High School... For those who don't know: Lean Six Sigma is a Business Certification for Quality Engineering.

    Anyway, I would like to go for my Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Certification but it says it requires 3+ Years of Job experience on your Resume. At the moment I only have 5 months worth of Professional IT Job experience / internships / on the job training. I'm currently a student at my local CC, which I am already paying a lot of $$ (Money) for tuition & books, but the thing is I want a certification probably starting over one of the summer breaks to help pay tuition & books.

    The Lean Six Sigma Certifications I heard from my Instructor don't expire.

    Anyway, I want to find a way in my schedule or something to get the next level up Lean Six Sigma Certification. Whether it's Six Sigma Yellow Belt Internships or co-ops then that would be nice, but the problem is that:

    A): Those are considered full-time positions & there are hardly any part-time internships, as they are "Professional Level" Jobs. And I'm a full-time student at the CC. (16 Credit hours this semester).
    B): I need 3+ years of Job XP before it makes sense to go for the training to get the Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Certification.

    Here are the IT Certifications I would like to start studying for to help pay my CC tuition & books, as well as for other things I might need:

    - Red Hat Certified Network Engineer (RHCE) Certification
    - CompTIA A+
    - CompTIA Network+
    - Cisco CCENT / CCNA Routing & Switching and / or Security

    Again, I'm a full-time student at the CC, & I might be looking for a (hopefully) Part-time Internships & Co-Ops, but those are EXTREMELY Hard to find & hard to get in the first place. I'm starting to look for Professional-Level work now, as I am now considered to be a "Professional-Level" Student.
