Earn your Operational Excellence Associate Certificate

Become an Operational Excellence Associate

The Operational Excellence Associate (OEA) Certificate is tangible evidence that you have completed your introduction to Operational Excellence.

Traditional Yellow Belt programs focus exclusively on Six Sigma methodology. Our OEA Certificate provides you with the powerful combination of Six Sigma, Lean and BPM skills. You’ll gain competitive advantage and open up opportunities down the road. Learn how to make a contribution to your organization through process improvement using the latest thinking, methods and tools. If you wish to take it to the next level and lead process initiatives, consider earning your OpEx Professional Certificate to learn serious implementation and leadership skills.
