Is instructor support available / Why is tuition for Six Sigma Online Certification a fraction of the cost of “on-site” training & public courses?

Because our certification courses are conducted in a more independent approach, you are able to save substantial amounts that would have otherwise been allocated for additional full-time consultants and facilities.

However, if a student is having a serious problem grasping a particular concept, students can usually receive assistance free of charge by emailing [email protected] for a follow-up by one of our resident Master Black Belts. But again, the program is designed to be an independent course.

One thing to keep in mind when comparing Six Sigma online training providers… most providers charge an extra fee for instructor support (typically about $100USD/hr).

Originally developed by Bill Smith at Motorola in 1986, the Six Sigma Training program was created using some of the most innovative quality improvement methods from the preceding six decades. The term "Six Sigma" is derived from a field of statistics known as process capability. The term 6 Sigma refers to the ability of manufacturing processes to produce a very high proportion of output within specification. Processes that operate with "six sigma quality" over the short term are assumed to produce long-term defect levels below 3.4 defects per million opportunities. Six Sigma's goal is to improve overall processes to that level of quality or better.
