Prices exclude coaching and teacher-led classes, but include the exam. No VAT applicable. For the Green and Black Belt courses, you will need access to the statistical software MiniTab. There is the option of a 30-day free trial (www.minitab.com) or buying a one-year licence, through LeanDirect, at the price of €460 (2017). Please note that MiniTab only runs on Windows machines.

Our course is suitable for individuals and groups. Individuals may be private users who do not have the opportunity to take the course through their employer. Other individuals may simply prefer studying alone and at their own pace instead of in a group. The course is also suitable for groups; usually, an organisation will request training for their employees.
