Probably the case. For my company, it's only required within a year for people who are being promoted or hired into management. So once I got the "production supervisor" label tacked onto my list of job titles, they sent me to training for it. The bonus, though, was unexpected but, I am told, standard once you get a Green Belt certification. And then, should I go the extra mile for Black Belt certification in a few years, I get a $1000 bonus.
