Blog : 5 Tips to choose the Right Six Sigma Training Provider

Discussing the factors essential to choose the right Six Sigma Training Provider.


Few days back, one of my friends made an enquiry for Six Sigma Green Belt on multiple online platforms including Google, Urban Pro, Just-Dial & India Mart. To his surprise, he received over 15 references for training providers offering Six Sigma Green Belt, each claiming to be the best! Of course, he got confused alike most of us could be!

Many of us might have experienced such situations. It actually leads to dilemma of choosing one out of 10s, at times even 100s.

Today, I will be sharing 5 tips to choose the ‘Right Six Sigma Training Provider’ which I gave to my friend as well.


2-tips-to-choose-the-right-Six-Sigma-Training-Provider


1: Select the right mode of Training- Classroom Vs Online

The most and the obvious return we expect against the fees that you pay for is the knowledge! Almost everyone in the market has similar curriculum for a particular Six Sigma Training but what matters is how the knowledge is going to get transferred to you. In other words, the mode of Training.

Training widely has two primary modes- Class-room and Online. In the era of fast-food & all-time-busy schedule, it is convenient to opt for Online Six Sigma Training.

I understand some of you may not be feasible for online mode but it’s because you are not sure if it will benefit you or not. So it’s logical to look for the answer but many of us will choose the way of locking your 4-8 full days by leaving your job or study aside, traveling in mega traffic to reach to venue, adjust your pace of learning with that of the class, avoiding asking questions being shy and more importantly competing with Others for marks in the exam than focusing on Learning!

Online Six Sigma Training offers the privilege to get rid of all the above problems, providing convenience & yet save a huge amount of time, efforts & money.


2. Understand the Training Delivery Model

It is very essential to understand the crux of the Training Delivery Model. Even in case of Online Six Sigma Training, there are majorly three models- 1. Online Instructor-led (Save you efforts of traveling but time-convenience is limited) 2. Online Recorded Video Sessions (becomes monotonous, boring & non-interactive) and 3. Animated Self-Paced (lively, convenient with better knowledge sharing ratio).

With Online Six Sigma Training, you may also need to look for the Learning Support is available or not. I suggest to demand for Live Chat or Communication with Six Sigma Experts for real-time training assistance.

Six Sigma is a kind of methodology that is meant to apply to real-life problems. Hence, it is required that your Training Delivery Model facilitates the practical exposure, not only Quiz! Most of the Training Providers assume answering the quiz reflects the understanding of the learners but it is not true at all.


3. Certification Process


Six Sigma Certification itself indicates your commitment for Quality and Analytical Skills, well before you speak up! Six Sigma Methodology finds its application in countless organizations across a wide range of industries worldwide. Adding Six Sigma Certificate in your resume would impact the future of your career alike millions of Six Sigma Practitioners. Thus, it is very much needed to know the Certification Process.

There are certain Training Providers, in association with the Certificate issuing Authority or Accreditation Body, follow ill-practices such as wilfully failing the learners in the test and ask for extra amount for re-appearing in the test. You need to be very careful while choosing the Right Six Sigma Training Providers else it would be a waste of money, time and most importantly a trust on Six Sigma Training Providers, which will be a loss to Authenticate Training Providers.


4. Validate the Accreditation

Unlike Project Management, Six Sigma does not have any Centralised Body or Organization that validates the Curriculum or Training Provider’s Credibility. However, there are few widely recognised Accreditation Authorities such as ‘Council for Six Sigma Certification-CSSC (USA)’.

Every Accreditation Provider has its own criteria for Six Sigma Training Providers. Some of the Accreditation Bodies work on highly commercial basis whereas some work towards the betterment of Six Sigma Community as whole.

You can even find negative reviews or feedbacks for some accreditation providers but I believe they comes from the close competition.


5. Compare Pricing with the Value you may get

And here it is the core of any purchase especially in India. We often compare the pricing of multiple Training Providers but somehow we skip to compare the ‘value’ being added by each Training Provider.

For example, when we compare pricing of an iPhone with Micromax, we know iPhone has an advantage in terms of features, durability & performance. The same way, you have to compare Pricing with the Value you may get.

I am sure if you evaluate any Six Sigma Training Provider using the above tips, you will be definitely getting the Right One for you!

Let me tell you about my friend before I put my pen down. He was happy to find my tips useful in finding it right. He chose ‘e-Six Sigma’ amongst those 15. He is now a Certified Six Sigma Green Belt. And in the last week itself, he grabbed ‘Employee of the Month Award’ for his significant contribution in Quality Management at his job.
