ŸAs those lecturers are part-time, they may not know what happened in the real six sigma business world and cannot bring lively examples to the class.
ŸAs companies in the business world require real project deployment experience even for a Six Sigma Green Belt, AC&A consultants will help students in the course to complete a real project.
ŸIn the Black Belt course, the students are required to practice their Six Sigma Black Belt skills in a 2-day simulation workshop so that the Six Sigma Master Black Belt can coach them hand-in-hand on their deficiencies in practicing six sigma.

ŸThe 2nd one is American Society of Quality (ASQ) www.asq.org .This is an association originating in US and has over 5 years experience in Six Sigma.
ŸAC&A is very careful in choosing the qualification to be registered.We will choose those organizations which align the needs of those companies which employ six sigma professionals.
ŸSome courses can only provide certificate granted by the training organization.Questions are raised on their recognition.
ŸSome organizations may provide both six sigma professional registration and training together.The value of this qualification may become lower and lower if the organization do not control the quality of the course as well as disregards the needs of the real business world in employing six sigma professionals.
