Professional course which translates complex ideas into practical application. Very well structured course.

Explains relatively complex formulas with clear examples that makes the subject matter easy to learn.

Overall great training from goleansixsigma.com. I would recommend this training to anyone who is interested in further developing their problem solving muscles!

I have taken both the Green and Black Belt courses through GoLeanSixSigma.com this year. The content is excellent, and the ability to learn and study at your own pace was essential to me. Perhaps the best part of the courses is the 'real life' scenario they use of a bistro attempting to make improvements, and tying those improvements to each phase of DMAIC. The templates available are numerous, and the instructions on how to run statistical tests in Minitab were excellent as well (as I had not used Minitab before). The course is very affordable compared to other offerings, and I have recommended GoLeanSixSigma.com to numerous people in my organization already.

Very well focused program that not only teaches you the functionality of Lean Six Sigma but also the reasoning behind the need for this type of thought process. The material is well organized and user friendly. Great course highly recommended.

GoLeanSixSigma.com Black Belt training program is undoubtedly one of the high point of my career because I just received my Black Belt certification today. This program focuses extremely well on facilitation of green belts and SME as a Black Belt. This is the 3rd Black Belt programs that I have completed. It is the last one that I will attempt. The guidance from the Master Black Belts for my Project Storyboard made me realize the importance of their roles to ensure the success of each continuous improvement project. I high recommend this Black Belt program to anyone who wants to make a great impact in the field of Continuous Improvement. They did a fabulous job to create this online Black Belt program. I am honor to have the opportunity to participate in the Yellow Belt, Green Belt and Black Belt programs from this company. And they really care about you!!!!

GoLeanSixSigma.com Black Belt training program was the best program so far in my career, excellent course, well organized and conducted, and memorable. I would definitely recommend this program to anyone who wants to become the professional of process improvement.

The quality of the materials/templates and systematic approach offered a painless segway from the Green Belt Training to Black Belt. My personal favorite is the Advanced Project Selection Tool which allows you to weed out the weak projects that may look good on paper in favor of the projects that are geared for what's more critical to your organization.

Our Learners Love Us

Using Lean Six Sigma, I created a SIPOC, Project Charter and Pareto Chart to identify the biggest issues that our team faced (lack of training). We then used The 5 Whys and a Cause & Effect Diagram to learn that highly skilled workers were absent during that low production month and unskilled workers were absent during the high production month. This data helped to streamline the process and eliminate Non-Value Added Activities which increased monthly production by 50% within 3 months.

I started a new job at a Construction Company right after getting my Yellow Belt Certification from GoLeanSixSigma.com and was able to begin using the tools. I used Lean to identify waste, create a visual job board and increased my team’s productivity by 30% – I was also given a pay raise just two months after starting my job.

GoLeanSixSigma.com’s Yellow Belt Training & Certification was very useful at our hospital as it helped us use Lean Six Sigma Tools to successfully improve the care we provide to our patients by increasing chemotherapy patient education & screening by 40% and improving communication hand-offs between nurses regarding patients in their care.

Phillip Williams 150×150 2

I truly enjoy GoLeanSixSigma.com‘s online training. I use the knowledge on a daily basis in my organization. I am spreading the word of Lean and Six Sigma and at the same time educating my peers in a more robust process improvement understanding. I have had excellent support from the GoLeanSixSigma.com team throughout my training. Thank you guys. All the best!

Philip A Goleansixsigma Com  2

Super excited to say I just completed my Green Belt Training & Certification! This is my second online training and exam through GoLeanSixSigma.com. I find their courses very informational and on a side note, I love the webinars they offer as well. I’ll be working on a process improvement project with our office using the training I’ve received and I’m excited to be sharing my education with others who can benefit from it while working on our project! Thank you GoLeanSixSigma.com!

At the Department of Veteran’s Affairs, we learned to use process mapping and work standardization techniques in our Specialty Care Clinic to decrease the wait time of appointments by creating a separate clinic for new patients. This enabled us to also serve more existing patients needing wound care.
