One does not just attend a program and receive his certification, but has to successfully apply and show proper use of tools and methodology with actual work processes. One has to earn his Six Sigma certification," Tuozo said. "If you attend our Six Sigma programs, unlike other training providers, you get continuous support after the program, for no additional cost. You'll be assigned a Black Belt to help you complete your project," Tuozo added.
