Feedback from our students that prove we are making a real difference for them in their jobs and professional skill development journey:

 "It was really great.  The tool template and the resume booster is real helpful.  Earlier I had to prepare Pareto Chart using all calculation for my company and now, I could easily make it with the template.  Same way, new tools can also be used in same way (ex. Run chart I used recently)."

"This was a great overview of Six Sigma Tools for Yellow Belt.  I am using this course to help me prepare for the Black Belt certification.  I've already been trained for Green Belt with my company, but found being able to rewind or replay components of the lecture to be helpful.  I also liked the quizzes and the summary of knowledge learned.  Great job!"
