“Is it really the right time to get certified in a new skill?
Out of reluctance towards the fact of burning some extra energy behind the courses and exams, you might have asked yourself this question a million times and have taken a step backward as well.
Let me ask you a question now.
Have you ever felt that people sharing the workload with you on a regular basis, are getting preferred when it comes to a big project?
Or, some batch mate of yours recently got hired at your dream organization?
Wondering how exactly this has happened?
I have a one-word answer for you, certifications!
Getting certified on the field of your specialty doesn’t only give you a stamp of excellence in front of your current employer, but opens up thousands of new opportunities for you as well!
But, how will you be able to understand that it’s time to go for a certification?
In this blog, we are going to help you out with the information about the same.
In our previous articles, we have discussed professional certification of Blockchain and Six Sigma. Different professional certifying bodies have different sets of criteria on their eligibility list for these two courses.
Although, after delivering quality training in both technical and non-technical field, GSD Council reviews the criteria again. According to GSDC reviews, once you have selected the course you want to take up, there is no such set of criteria. You just need to go for it.
But, you need to be aware of a few basics though. Wonder what they might be? Let’s check out!
Professional Certification in Six Sigma:
Professional training in Six Sigma helps you to improve your project management pattern through five important steps: Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control. So you can understand, professional certification six sigma requires you to be well versed in all the basics of Project Management.
To master the art of Lean Six Sigma, there are these three courses which you can opt for-
- Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt Certification

- Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Certification
Though there are no mandatory prerequisites for any of the courses mentioned above, international credentialing bodies look for a few recommendations before one takes up the course. Let us walk you through it:

Professional Certification in Blockchain:
In the era of cryptocurrency, Blockchain technology’s essentiality is increasing day by day in every organization. Every professional certification body has kept Blockchain Certification as a top priority since the demand for Blockchain Experts is huge nowadays.
Like Six Sigma, professional certification in Blockchain, too, have various courses. Few courses every professional certification organization is emphasizing on are:
- Certified Blockchain Professional
- Blockchain Architect

Professional Certification in Blockchain is strictly based on coding. Hence, unlike Lean Six Sigma Certification, professional certifying bodies demand you to fulfil few requirements before taking up this course:
- IJS certification or Object Oriented Programming experience
- Vast knowledge of Data Structure elements
- Understanding of the method of cryptography
- Knowledge of front and backend web development and handling APIs
If your concepts about these all are not clear enough, you can brush up your knowledge by attending free webinars from industry experts in order to know all the basics of Blockchain Technology. Once your basics are clear, you are all set for the certification!
The Role Of GSDC Validity:
Suppose, you have completed the Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt Training and you want to take up the course for Six Sigma Certification.
Since you have done your Six Sigma Yellow Belt training, definitely you should fit in the criteria. But, you can’t opt for it unless you know if your previous certification is valid or not.
The GSD Council Validity process can help you find that out.
Once you put your certificate number, it shows your previous certificate is valid yet or not.
Once you get the GSDC Validity, you can easily start planning to take up the other courses related to the same platform.
As we all know, there is no end to learning. But what exactly is the perfect time to learn? You can define that by yourself with the help of GSDC Ratings about the importance of the courses. The GSD Council Ratings have categorized the courses and their needs step by step. You can have a look into it here and decide.
