Our training has inspired numerous testimonials

This class "Work Measurement Online" is a great refresher for work measurement! The company I work for has given me a project to develop new work standards for all operations (BIG project). I have an IE degree but I haven't really done time studies for almost 10 years and this course is exactly what I needed! 

-John Rogstad 

Larry Aft was the best part of the "Six Sigma Black Belt" seminar. His vast knowledge of multiple industries and his experience in training helped me understand how these concepts could be useful in my line of work.
