3,000+ organizations trust us to train and certify their teams.

I got my Black Belt from and they’re by far one of the most user-friendly and client experience driven companies that I have ever encountered.

I had my entire team gain their Lean Six Sigma Green Belt through them and the content made sense to everyone – from those with little to no experience with Six Sigma and to those who were experienced. The interactive videos and training allow users to learn the material at their own pace and then to practically apply the information learned.

Jamie Whited (ADP) -’s courses have put our teams on the right continuous improvement path. I had a lot of fun working on my project and their templates made the process so much easier and enjoyable. I’m really looking forward to upcoming projects.
