services and create a people-centric process that maximizes the value flow to the customers.

Instructor’s knowledge and presentation skill with life experience, one of the best instructors .The explanations were clear, concise and to the point and the pace was comfortable to follow. The examinations covered the most important topics and served as a good reminder of these. I give thumbs up to the instructor and NIQC for providing guidance to build excellent career with process excellence training.

Finished LSSGB certification with NIQC. Initially had few apprehensions on whether should I go for an online course with NIQC or wait for Covid-19 situation to improve for classroom training sessions. Without doubt, I can say I have made the correct decision to move ahead with NIQC. Detailed curriculum, Easy to use interface, Experienced trainers, Live exercises, Recorded sessions to revise, & all of the support required at disposal.

One of my friend referred NIQC International for Six Sigma course who was not a student of NIQC but he was a Six sigma black belt from other institute and I proudly say that I have not mistaken choosing NIQC. Shailja Mam is superb with lots of real life examples which we can corelate during the sessions. Overall nice experience with good notes. Thanks to Mr.Dheeren and Preeti. Cheers..

NIQC is an organization which provides world class training in niche certifications. The trainers are spectacular! they build an amicable environment where you would thrive to learn more. Content is vast and they explicitly cover it end to end. I would definitely recommend this to my friends and family. I would rate them 10 stars if google had that option!! 🙂

You set a high bar with your Quality Training Team NIQC. Shillaja was Amazing during the training and the entire team is always available to Help & Support. I would recommend each and everyone who is planning to take six sigma course in future to join Team NIQC. Thank you Shillaja, Dheerendra, Preethi & Entire team for the amazing experience you let us witness and experience. I thoroughly loved it 🙂
