"Having recognised the business improvement benefits of Lean Six Sigma to my organisation, I researched thoroughly for providers for my Lean Six Sigma black belt training. Firebrand come out on top on all levels. During my training, support from the clerical team was excellent; the pace and delivery from my tutor was excellent. You get my drift. Thoroughly recommend Firebrand for Six Sigma training!"
