A Lean or Six Sigma Certificate is becoming an expectation in the business world and is synonymous with effective team players. Our online training meets the demands of busy professionals with a self-paced approach, rather than the complications and costs of on-site providers.  

• Learn how to design, develop, and implement better processes in order to deliver breakthrough improvements in any business sector or environment.


• Help organizations decrease costs, increase revenues, improve quality and customer relationships, and increase market share.


• Most organizations focus only on the operation of their business, seldom stopping to ask themselves, "What went wrong?" Six Sigma directs people to continually evaluate critical processes.

Group meeting

• Lean Six Sigma provides a systematic approach which reduces waste in the value stream. It not only covers defective products, but all types of defective work.





• Lean Six Sigma identifies defects, overproduction, inventories (in process or finished goods), unnecessary processing, unnecessary movement of people, unnecessary transport of goods, waiting, and designing goods and services that don’t meet customer’s needs.

Our Virtual structure allows us to deliver a high-value learning experience at prices that are the best in the market... at a fraction of the cost what you would be required to pay for similar programs elsewhere while still achieving the highest level of quality and service.

Frequently asked questions

What is Lean Six Sigma Training?

A collaboration of years of proven management strategies developed into one clear and concise management program with one goal in mind, to improve the outcome of any company, whether that be a company whose goal is to provide the best customer service or the best products, the process is the same and is very simple. The goal is to eliminate defects, anything that leads to customer dissatisfaction, and improve the manufacturing and/or business processes, leading to only a successful outcome. The Lean Six Sigma Training Program believes in three primary principles for creating success: 1 - Business success is highly reliant upon reducing the amount of variation that you have in your business process. 2 - Manufacturing and business processes have characteristics that can be clearly measured, analyzed, controlled and improved upon. 3 - Achieving sustained quality improvement is the result of the entire organization working together for a common goal, especially onboard need to be the members of top level management.

How is Lean Six Sigma training different from other business management programs?

Through a combination of several different ideas and methodologies, Lean Six Sigma Training is set apart from the rest. Primarily the things that set it apart include: --> Decisions that are based on verifiable data and not the result of assumptions and guesswork. --> A focus on attaining measurable and quantifiable financial returns from any Lean Six Sigma project. --> A specific multi tiered infrastructure which creates a role for every person in the company to help implement the Lean Six Sigma plan on their own level. --> An increased emphasis on strong and passionate leadership and support.

Are Lean Six Sigma Online Certifications Better For Your Business?

Online training is a no-brainer for most learners, and is an emerging trend the masses are just starting to see the value in. The cost of entry is so low, and the ultimate ability to schedule training in for employees around work and their other commitments allows for a perfect training solution. The decrease in cost for training lowers the companies overhead expenses, and also allows for a faster paced learning environment. The online training program is self paced and therefore allows more individualized instruction, because if an employee needs to spend more time on one section and less on another, they can do so with ease, and without holding up the group as a whole.

How Does Lean Six Sigma Work?

Lean Six Sigma has both management components and technical components. Using this dual approach allows for everyone to have a role in making the Lean Six Sigma plan a success. The management side focuses on using the management system to line up the right projects and match them with the right individuals. Management also focuses on getting the right goals and process metrics to ensure that projects are successfully completed and that these gains can be sustained over time. The technical side focuses on enhancing process performance using process data, statistical thinking, and methods. This focused process improvement methodology has five key stages: Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control. Define is to define process improvement goals that are consistent with customer demands and company strategy. Next, measure the key aspects of the current processes that your company is using and collect relevant data about these processes and current results. Then analyze the data to verify cause and affect relationships, be sure to consider all possible factors involved. Then improve or optimize the process based upon data analysis using techniques like Design of Experiments or observational study. The last step is to control to ensure that any deviations are corrected before they result in defects. During this step you will also set up pilot runs to establish process capability and will continuously monitor the process. All tools statistical or not are linked and sequenced in a unique way that makes Lean Six Sigma both easy and effective to use. The basic approach focuses on the identification of the key process drivers (variables that have the largest effect on output) and relies on software such as Minitab for statistical calculations.

What is the Difference between Lean and Six Sigma?

Lean manufacturing is a systematic way of eliminating waste to create flow in the production process, while Six Sigma is a set of techniques that strive to decrease the rate of defects.
