on-site quality Consulting and training

 

All instructors have either their MBAs or Phd and extensive training experience.  In addition, every instructor comes with 20-plus years working as a professional quality director or manager.  And each has appropriate ASQ certifications.

NOTE: Preparation classes assume prior experience.  For example the six-sigma prep classes will not substitute for a six-sigma program.  Also, check with the ASQ for specific work and experience requirements for certification.  Passing our preparation classes do NOT constitute ASQ certification.  Participants must pass the appropriate ASQ certification exam to achieve ASQ Certification.  However, we do provide certificates of course completion for participants.

OUR INSTRUCTORS

We have a simple philosophy for setting our prices: 


                    When we are at your site, you get the full benefits of our service provider.

Unlike other training providers, we price by the class, not by the number of participants attending.  We feel that if you need us to train three people, that doesn't take three times the amount of work on our part.  Often, additional attendees makes the training easier for us, better for the participants, and more effective for you.  If you have more people to train, we just ask you to cover the cost of the additional materials. Consequently, we offer a flat rate of $995 per day. 


We also schedule classes to meet your schedule and your training needs.  We hold the classes at your site and in your training facility.  This gives you more control over the classes.  Class sizes are limited by the size of your facility and what is manageable.  However, we recommend limiting classes to a maximum of about 10 participants at a time.  Please contact us for off-site training.

Travel expenses tend to vary with the price of air-fare and the distance covered.  Our price includes only the initial $150 for air and lodging.  We subscribe to US Government standard rates.


Keep in mind, that if you have only a single participant for the training, consider using our on-line approach.  You still get a live instructor and access to all the materials, but there is no cost for travel or travel time.  Sometime this helps cost sensitive clients.

The price for a single, on-line day of training is $549.
