Student Testimonial

I have recently completed the "Six Sigma Course." My background is in Engineering, which includes a graduate degree. I have spent the last ten years in the Quality and Reliability field, and have never fully grasped the concepts and principles of statistics until this course.

I signed up for the Six Sigma Black Belt class to further my understanding of statistics, reliability, and to assist in solving some of the reliability problems experienced by my current employer in manufacturing electronic equipment. The Six Sigma class was taught in a comprehensive and practical manner with numerous case studies. It provided much more than the typical statistics found in many Six Sigma course outlines. The in-depth explanations of how, when, and why, enabled the students to go beyond the use of the tools and advance toward mastery of the Six Sigma material. I found the course to be an exceptional educational experience. The material presented is invaluable in learning new methods and techniques to solve problems, establish business performance excellence, and make decisions that are beneficial to the long-term financial performance of an organization. Personally, I have added numerous tools to my skill set that will enhance my professional development, and I have already been able to utilize the material to benefit my company. I have a greater appreciation for the powerful tools associated with Six Sigma and its value in achieving success in any organization.
