SIX SIGMA (ASQ) CERTIFICATION PREP
Process improvement professionals are in high demand. Companies prefer to bring already trained individuals on board to minimize their own training costs. New companies are realizing the benefits of a structured continuous improvement program and new industries are realizing that itâ€™s not just for manufacturing.
CCM offers Six Sigma certification so that smaller companies can afford to train at least one key knowledgeable individual to shepherd the company through the growth and increased profits that larger companies experience with Six Sigma improvements. These affordable courses allow individuals to continue working and immediately put into practice the skills being learned in class.
