[Mentor's note: Posts from two threads have been merged into one] 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.
