I did my ASQ Black Belt training from Seven Steps Academy in Bangalore and was a part of the first batch of students.

The training & facility was excellent. Training included exercises and discussions from the real life scenarios which was extremely helpful. The support from all the faculty post completion of training, during the time I was scheduled to give my Black Belt exam needs special mention!

I would highly recommend Seven Steps for Quality Trainings !

As a Quality professional it was my personal goal to be trained on Six Sigma Black Belt from a recognised institution like ASQ.

I could accomplish my goal through Seven Steps Academy who meticulously trained me in Six Sigma methodology. It was a wonderful learning experience to interact with intellectual faculty. I look forward to have many more such sessions in days to come.
