SSGI Black Belt review

Lars Axelsen

lean six sigma green belt

Great content, great value for money! The Black Belt material is very well planned as a logical progression. It makes the statistical tools very easy to understand and their relevance becomes clear. I had some of these statistics tools when studying for a BA in Economics, but then the tools were abstract and theoretical. This training makes them easy to learn and understand why and how to use. The material is easy to read in logical sizes. So unless reading is hard or learning this way is difficult for you, then do not worry about the material being based on slides. It took me 2 months to get through the detailed material, then 2 weeks some time later to go through the shorter version study guide after which I could take and pass the exam in the first try (93% correct) with plenty time to spare.

Great course, I have experience in the systematic problem solving techniques but no formal Six Sigma training- this course provided the additional education needed.  Material was arranged and presented very well and the course and study guide prepared me well for the final exam.  In regards to the charts and tools, it did a great job identifying what is available and when / how to use them.  This course and practical experience is a great marriage to obtain a Black Belt certification.

I really enjoyed the Black Belt course – overall it was Excellent!  The material was laid out in a user friendly way with great real world examples to help illustrate and understand the concepts, formulas and processes.  I was able to understand fairly complex statistical concepts and methods without having a masters in statistics! There is an extensive amount of course material and study guide which will be excellent references for me in the future.  For any questions, emails were promptly answered, and when contacting Professor Shore by phone, he was able to talk with me immediately and took the time to fully help me understand any concepts I was having difficulty with.  Excellent support!  The exam was a good reflection of the key course concepts presented.  Thank you!
