    Hi All,
    I have a Masters Degree in Quality Management, would like to find what is the best way I can acquire a Six Sigma Training. I am currently based in the Gulf and would prefer something like a distance training or a on line training.
    Would appreciate any help or advice.

    Elan,With a degree in Quality Management, you have probably been exposed to many of the tools and technique of Six Sigma. What types of topics did your degree cover? Also, did your masters degree reguire a thesis? If so, what did yours cover?Best regards,

    Hi Quality Colorado,
    Yes, I am exposed to most of the quality tools. I know for sure my core modulars in the MBA was Organisation Change, TQM and Business Process Re-engineering. I also did a research on the impact of Quality as my thesis. I hope this is what you require.
    Thanks

    You  have  to  go  through  the  the  SS Crriculum and BOK:
    Foe  Example for  the  BB:DMAIC,Project  Management,,CTQs,SIPOC,Data collecting  technoques,Cp,Cpk..etc
    Quality 7 tools,Planning  new  7  tools,,Hypothesis  Testing,ANOVA,DOE,QFD,FMEA,Poka-Yoke,SPC,Statistical Software training,etc
    Finally  you  have  to  be  able  to  finalize  1-2  projects successfully.
    Good Luck

    Elan,
    It sounds like you have had quite a bit of “book” exposure to many quality tools and techniques.  The “study” portion of most Six Sigma courses will probably cover material that you are already intellectually familar with. 
    Have you had the opportunity to apply your quality skills to “real-life” projects?  If so, what has been your experience?
     
    Best regards,

    Could  you  explain  to  me  why to  distinguish  between SS training  and Certification?I believe  that both  should  be  integrated in one  package.This  trend is  only  for  making  money?Can  you  imagine  a surgeon who  is  only  trained ,and  another certified.What  a  great  mess?what  is  your  opinion?thanks

    Elan’s original posting was as follows:  “I have a Masters Degree in Quality Management, would like to find what is the best way I can acquire a Six Sigma Training. I am currently based in the Gulf and would prefer something like a distance training or a on line training. Would appreciate any help or advice.”
    He did not ask about certification, only training.  I believe that Elan may already have much of the “book” learning about Six Sigma tools and techniques. If he takes an “Introduction to Six Sigma”, for instance, I think he may be wasting his money — he has probably learned most of this material already in his master’s degree courses.
     
    Making this quality learning “real” does require application of this knowledge to real-world improvement projects. I am still hoping that Elan may reply regarding whether he has had the opportunity to apply what he learned in his master’s degree program to “real” projects.
    His response may guide me, you, and/or others about additional advice to him regarding possible additional learning opportunities.
     
    Best regards,
