Latest student testimonials:
David Marshall - " I wanted to update this rating I already gave the course a five but I wanted to give it extra props for helping me pass the ASQ CSSGB exam today. I accidentally left one of my 2 notebooks at home when I took the exam so my only open book materials were the notes I took from this class and other than the in-depth DFSS questions it definitely helped me pass. Along with the applicability of the material to my job and daily activities the course was definitely worth the time and investment. Great course, great value!"
Naveen Kumar - "I just passed my IASSC Green Belt exam and I couldn't have done it without the help of this course. I do not have a statistical background and yet, this course was immensely helpful to understand the basic concepts of Lean Six Sigma. Neil did a great job here. Appreciate it!"
Kimi - "First of All, I passed the ASQ certified Green Belt exam several days ago. Here is a big appreciation to the Instructor. Regarding the course for passing the exam, it is a nice introduction to the Six Sigma in general.It gives you lots of concepts during the courses in a very understandable way."
Joe Lance -"The course was very thorough. It was detailed, and challenging. The Instructor was very knowledgeable and professional. The supporting material was good, and I learned a lot. I will recommend this course to my friends, and I will return for Black Belt certification after I have time to incorporate the skills I learned in this course."
