Is the quality of learning the same as “on-site” training & public courses?

Although nothing can compete with personal one-on-one interaction with a master black belt, our online students tend to become more Six Sigma “savvy” than those in an on-site course. That is why Six Sigma Online Certification is highly regarded as having one of the best certification programs available.

Other courses require their students to memorize information for an exam, only later to have the unused information forgotten. Our approach forces the student to use the textbook as a frequent reference guide, even after certification.

Additionally, since most on-site & public courses are taught in large groups, most students do not have a chance to fully absorb the material due to time restrictions.


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.
