I spent three full days online with David as he took us through the Lean Six Sigma Black Belt training, he's such an amazing trainer. His sessions were well organised with a lot of interaction between our group of 14. David brought in practical examples and integrated his theory really well with practice thus making the sessions more lively all the way. I'm already applying some of the things that I learnt in my work as a start-up consultant.
Completed training for Lean Six Sigma Black Belt over two week period. The training was provided by David Smallwood and Shane Nithsdale. Both had extensive experience in the subject and delivered the training very well as everything was on line. Ample time for discussion from the attendees who came from a vast array of business areas and locations. Overall an excellent experience.
I started the lean six sigma black belt course with Shane and he was really well informed on the green belt, the courses was very insightful, I then moved onto the black belt with David and that was a while other experience the guy really knows his stuff and how to use the skills not just in work life but at home too, really friendly guy and would welcome comments and questions and would always have a answer for them, I enjoyed my time learning from David.

Since its inception in 2015, ISO 18404:2015 has provided an internationally recognised benchmark for Lean Six Sigma methodologies.
ISO 18404:2015 defines the approaches organisations are required to have employed to meet the required standards, and very few training organisations around the world are independently accredited to deliver Lean Six Sigma Certifications aligned to ISO18404:2015.
e-Careers is the official training provider nominated by CEPAS, A Bureau Veritas Company to deliver ISO18404:2015 Lean Six Sigma Certifications to individuals across the globe.
Why is there a need for an ISO standard for Lean Six Sigma?
With no universal standard for Lean Six Sigma, training results varied widely between delegates, making it hard for employers to see the true value of an individual and their experience. As many training courses were either uncertified or not certified to a high enough standard, ISO 18404:2015 was introduced to become a strict Lean Six Sigma standard.
What does an ISO 18404:2015 certification mean for me?
Being trained to the strict ISO 18404:2015 standard enables you to confidently explain to others that you meet the single standard of Lean Six Sigma, making you a valuable, highly trained Lean Six Sigma team member. ISO 18404:2015 certification holders are highly sought after, and your certificates will showcase your knowledge and skills to future employers. ISO 18404:2015 certificates are internationally recognised, and your credentials will be published on an online public register, accessible by employers and clients.
Originally, ISO 18404:2015 was a complex and hard standard to achieve. CEPAS, Bureau Veritas and e-Careers has made it both simple and affordable now.
By meeting the ISO 18404:2015 competencies help to make you valuable and employable throughout a wide range of managerial roles in this industry.
