Delivering students with a set of industry recognized and valued certifications

We create an environment in which schools are able to provide training and certification to their students as a differentiator in the employment marketplace, to the public, and to private businesses and organizations that couldn’t afford to internalize this type of training, with little or no effort on your part except for the marketing and facilities support.  We are working to evolve this into “more and better” such as the addition of the Cii exclusive White Belt and DMADD training (which no other organization can offer) along with market/topic specific seminars that we can develop to meet local needs.

The curriculum is developed by certified Six Sigma Master Black Belts with 30 years plus experience and provides instructors with professional development days through the course of the year. Cii also provides continuous oversight of instructor led classwork and projects to prepare student for the certification exam which is proctored and overseen by instructor and certified professionals. Certifications are endorsed by the South Florida Manufacturers’ Association (SFMA)
