" The curriculum was a perfect mix of Lean Six Sigma theory, practical applications and the completion of an actual LSSBB project for certification. Unexpectedly, the real value was the collective learning and connections that I have made as a result of this course. "

" Being able to learn and apply the principals in a company was very rewarding. It allowed me to work in a new environment as an intern. The goal of $100,000 projected annual savings and referrals from the company sponsor will speak volumes to future employers. "

" The Black Belt program provided me with an extremely sought after skill set that has already attracted the attention of potential employers. Companies that have contacted me are very excited that I am a LSSBB and PMP; apparently it is a very rare and desirable combination. "
