I like this course. It is giving me the foundation knowledge and skills to prepare for future Green Belt exam. The course is well structured and includes quizzes to test your knowledge,etc.
July 27, 2021
So far it feels like a great match to educate me on the principles of lean more to apply them to my everyday career.
February 3, 2021
Courses are clear. Concepts are well explained with practicle exercises, exchange with other students and the teacher.
January 27, 2021
Very informative introduction, I was skeptical about starting the yellow belt training without taking the white belt one, but now reckon that it is not a must, and one can embark on the yellow belt straightaway.

The info shared here can be found for free online, there is no practical aspect of the certification.
April 13, 2020
great examples. broken up in bites that are easy to digest before going on to the next tool. great way to sharpen skills
April 13, 2020

Thanks for the Lean Six sigma Yellow Belt course , I am recommending , please provide the notes in only pdf format instead of Jpg image in some of the course content . which is may useful for long time reference .
April 11, 2020
I enjoyed taking the course as it is filled with valuable information that I can utilize in everyday life and apply at work. I am eager to put into practice the concepts I learned and look forward to improving productivity in my workplace. The delivery of information in this course was concise and to the point - I wouldn't expect anything else from a Lean Six Sigma!

This course is far more detail and covers more than the Yellow Belt training manual from Council for Six Sigma Certification. In addition to just obtaining a certification, this course also provides valuable knowledge which can be applied in real life.
March 5, 2020
Had taken other Lean Six Sigma courses but never to completion, this was a great overview that wrapped everything up and will be a great resource moving forward!
February 12, 2020
Easy to understand, some material repeated from White Belt course but good refresher, suggest to compile slides into a single PDF per Lecture.
October 25, 2019
Se queda corto en cuanto a la profundidad de las metodologías y herramientas de lean six sigma. Ademas falta ejemplos prácticos de mayor complejidad; casos de procesos de manufactura.
April 6, 2019
I think the tests could be a few questions longer. We cover a lot throughout the course and some of the tests were very short. Maybe offer a big final review test as well?
March 20, 2019
So far yes the course has matched my expectations. The animation is a little disjointed (eg within the last slide of lecture 3, the first 4 bullet points were removed from screen before the fifth appeared). The course content skips between areas and there's not always enough time to see theoretical models on screen before moving onto the next slide.
