Workshop Exam Requirements

  • The online certification exams for Yellow Belt and Green Belt consist of 100 multiple-choice questions covering the information presented in the assigned readings from the textbook, the lectures, and the simulation activities.
  • Each exam is 100 questions worth 1 point each.
  • The exam period is 3 hours.
  • You need a score of at least 70% to pass the certification exam.
  • This is an open book examination. You may use the textbook but no other notes.
  • You may use a calculator that does not have an alphanumeric keypad AND is approved by the proctor. You must clear all memory in front of the proctor(s).
  • Electronic devices (not even a peek!), other than the laptop used to take the exam, are not permitted for use in any way.
  • Each examinee must make his/her reference materials available to the proctor for review.
  • The proctor is the final authority on the admissibility of all reference materials.
  • No communication is permitted between examinees. Violations will be dealt with accordingly (i.e., severely). Anyone caught looking at other exams or an unapproved electronic device will have their tests taken away and you will not be certified.
  • Grading of the exams will immediately follow after the exam period. Notification of certification will occur as soon as the exams are graded.
  • There is no limit to the number of times you may retake an examination. The first retake will be free of cost. You will, however, be charged a retake fee of $50 for the second retake attempt. You must retake the examination during scheduled exam periods of subsequent workshops. You will have to submit a request through a workshop application. Failing the second retake exam will require a retake of the workshop.
