PHOENIX, ARIZONA May 29, 2012 IASSC (International Association for Six Sigma Certification) today announced the release of On-Demand Web-Based Certification Testing, a new high-stakes certification examination delivery method.

This new method of testing is designed to maintain the highest degree of security standards while making certification testing options more convenient and accessible for professionals. The system allows candidates to schedule and conduct IASSC Black Belt, Green Belt and Yellow Belt Certification exams from their own computers in their own locations, such as a home or office, 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Professional IASSC representatives known as a “Web Proctors” monitor exam sessions through web cameras. Candidates enter into a controlled interface through the Internet where the Web Proctor checks for personal identification and the testing environment where the candidate will be performing the exam for compliance to standards. The Web Proctor then authorizes the initiation of the certification exams and monitors the candidate through completion of the exam just like an in-person testing environment.

Though we currently have thousands of brick and mortar testing centers throughout the world delivering IASSC Certification Exams it is important we continually work to keep certification best-practices and the industry’s defined Lean Six Sigma standards at the forefront of what we do while expanding the convenience of testing options for candidates,” says Robert Shank, Managing Director of IASSC.

As a true third-party certification association within the industry IASSC has gained much recognition as a certification authority within the Lean Six Sigma field. IASSC has organized bodies of knowledge defined by thousands of Lean Six Sigma companies in a wide range of industries, from Production & Manufacturing to the Service & Transactional sectors. These bodies of knowledge are presented by IASSC in their official form as the “Generally Accepted Lean Six Sigma Bodies of Knowledge” because of their broad and extensive representation of the industry methodology. IASSC’s professionally developed certification examinations test a candidate’s knowledge and ability as it relates to these standards, all with a strict adherence to certification best-practices.

It has been and will remain our primary goal to represent the Lean Six Sigma methodology in its truest form, as defined by the industry itself, and provide certification testing within a framework of certification best-practices used by other highly qualified professions. The addition of our On-Demand Web-Based Certification Testing method takes this framework and makes it even more accessible to the industry.
