lean six sigma green belt

World-Class. The Green Belt Training from SSGI was not only a GREAT value it also fit into my busy day.  The course was well laid out and made it easy to learn and apply the principles the next day.  I really enjoyed the fact that I could access the course online allowing me access to material throughout the day when I had free time.  The course and supporting material like the flash cards and case studies prepared me well for the final exam and certification.  Also, the customer service was top notch, anytime I had a question they were quick to respond.  I have already recommended the class to others and soon will be looking to gain further certification through SSGI.  For anyone looking to get their Green Belt look no further than SSGI, the price is incredible and the content is world-class.

Excellent Course! With no practical experience in this field, I was concerned as to whether or not I would be able to master some of the content, particularly statistics.   With this said, the way the course was laid out as well as all the practical and real life industry examples in which were provided in the form of case studies and examples, it made it much more digestible in grasping all the concepts.  I am glad I took this.  I am looking forward to the Black Belt course, and I recommend to anyone in operations and manufacturing to improve their skills and promotion opportunities.

Six Sigma Testimonial SSGIDustin Hood

lean six sigma green belt

The Green Belt Training from SSGI has been the best value I’ve found. Not only in regards to affordability, but the content rivals many other competitors. I’ve taken Green Belt certification from my employer, one of the leading outsourcing companies in the industry, and found while it contained great information lacked the case studies that help make the concepts easy to comprehend. The case studies come from some of the most esteemed and innovative companies, which demonstrates that no matter what industry you perform, Lean Six Sigma can be applied. With the course comes everything you need to prepare for Green Belt Certification: flash cards, study guide, course material, and even practice exams. I highly recommend this course to anyone who is interested in process improvement or looking to add value to their professional portfolio.

The program was absolutely amazing. I enjoyed the flash cards and the study materials for the exam. The overall experience was a tad difficult but that should be expected if your going for a certification such as Green/Black Belt. I would highly recommend this training program to anyone that is looking to add value to their resume or to themselves. As I write the review I am preparing for my Leans Six Sigma Black Belt and I’m sure if the study resources are as well put together as the Green Belt program, I am confident I will do well.

I thoroughly enjoyed taking the Green Belt Certification Course offered by Six Sigma Global Institute.  Statistics is a complex subject, but the course explained the concepts thoroughly, and the many examples cited were very helpful in bringing the concepts to life.  Many thanks and I would definitely recommend your course to others.

Six Sigma Global Institute’s lean six sigma green belt was an easy self paced learning module. I was hesitant at first because there are so many different programs out there. SSGI made it simple from the day I signed up. I have referred a couple people to the training already. As soon as I completed and passed the test the SSGI team emailed me my certification. I will definitely be using them again for other learning age certification opportunities.
