Training & Certification

The BQF Academy, was established in 2006 as the Lean Six Sigma Academy to define the bodies of knowledge for Lean Six Sigma belts and to ensure a rigorous certification for practitioners.

The BQF Academy now has a much broader scope than just Lean Six Sigma and offers a range of certificated pathways for those wanting to recognise the talents and achievements of both individuals and teams involved in improvement, transformation or simply a journey towards excellence. BQF are proud to own the standards, and expectations for each certification and in collaboration with the academy partners are able to offer a great selection of training and capability development in a wide range of topics. The training and certification assessments are carried out by using only the best training providers and the BQF stamp of approval is a guarantee of quality. BQF are really proud to recognise the efforts of practitioners in our widely published Certification Register.
