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

I wondered how you were going to pull off putting Green Belt and Black Belt Training online. I am so impressed. It’s presented in a clear, distilled way including the stats pieces. You effectively integrated the soft skills of leadership/coaching/facilitation and broader change management. And the templates! Finally, the accompanying webinars are collaborative, comfortable and relevant. It exceeded my expectations. So… the overriding feedback is NICELY DONE.

GoLeanSixSigma.com’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.

I really appreciated the learning experience across all the courses – from Lean Training to Green Belt Training to Black Belt Training. I am now really able to see how Lean Six Sigma works and have completed my training, project and certifications properly the first try. Thanks to the whole team at GoLeanSixSigma.com who have created such a good learning program. Thank you.

My staff and I are very happy with the Green and Black Belt programs with GoLeanSixSigma.com. The material is easy to follow and the examples around Bahama Bistro are very helpful.

The courses offered by GoLeanSixSigma.com are very easy to follow. Their online delivery has made it easy for us to train our personnel in different geographic locations. In addition, the templates and examples have helped a number of our team members start their improvement efforts on the right track!

This Black Belt program was everything I needed to fully understand the high-level aspects of process improvement. It was very organized, informative, and advanced my understanding of the DMAIC Model and various PI tools. I would highly recommend to anyone looking to take the next step in their Process Improvement journey!

The intense detail mixed with brevity makes this course a recipe for career success

by Josh Hensley on Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Training & Certification

This was a great experience. I love the detail of the course and how I could work on it at my own pace. This has helped me grow my skills but also communicate Lean Six Sigma to others and help lead and mentor several successful projects.

by Gage Pritchett on Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Training & Certification

Course materials were presented in an easy to understand fashion, with lots of knowledge checks along the way. I enjoyed the on-line self paced learning and all of the support documents!!

by Caleb Sandifer on Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Training & Certification

Very thorough and challenging. Great course

by Rose Pangan on Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Training & Certification

GoLeanSixSigma.com is the most user-friendly and client-support driven companies that I have ever encountered. I got my Lean Six Sigma Black Belt training and certification through them. I had a hands-on experience before finding GoLeanSixSigma, but no certification. The interactive videos and training allowed me to learn the materials at my own pace and then to practically apply the additional information I learned. I had a lot of fun working on my project. Their templates, webinars, success stories, references, and sharing made the process so much easier and enjoyable. Kudos to my Coach Bill and the entire Client Experience Team!

by Ricard on Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Training & Certification

Very impressed with the overall training and more importantly, the leadership tools & techniques used throughout the course. Furthermore, the Bahama Bistro was a great example to illustrate all the concepts in manner that is immersive for the user and helps really bring to light, the core aspects of training.

by Tracey on Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Training & Certification

The GoLeanSixSigma team is excellent at breaking down fairly complex concepts in an approachable and engaging way! I thoroughly enjoyed my Black Belt training and getting to know the folks at Bahama Bistro!

by Meredith on Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Training & Certification

The training was excellent! Having gone through other Six Sigma curriculum in the past, there were still certain concepts that I still hadn't fully grasped. This course presented the information in such a way that the light bulb finally went on in my head. I also enjoyed the friendly, accessible look and feel as well as the occasional humor sprinkled throughout.
