As more companies in the world embrace Six Sigma, the need to hire and train employees in the methodology grows. Today, Six Sigma certification is one of the highly sought after credentials among employers and they are willing to pay fatty paycheques for job candidates who have yellow, green and black belts. iACT Global Education has been playing a vital role in the development of Six Sigma professionals for various businesses since its establishment in 2008. "With years of experience in this field, we are emerging as India's largest education company for working professionals," says Abhijeet Virmani, Founder and Director, iACT Global.
iACT Global has already trained more than 1,00,000 professionals and continues its journey by imparting training in the areas of quality, marketing, finance, general management, human resource, operations and project management. Although there are numerous training centres in every nook and corner of the country, the iACT Global stands different from others. "We have a tradition of hiring the best in class professionals as our trainers. They have significant practical experience and have worked with blue-chip Indian and multinational corporations for several years," says Abhijeet.
The participation of industry practitioners, management consultants and faculty of leading universities has helped iACT Global to come up with highly practical and industry-oriented training modules
The participation of industry practitioners, management consultants and faculty of leading universities has helped the institute to come up with highly practical and industry-oriented training modules. The institute follows DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyse, Improve and Control) methodology. Abhijeet adds, "Six Sigma is not just about learning. It is all about the right measure of implementation. We are looking for a blend of expertise and the teaching ability in our trainers, so that we can rightly inject the objectives into the students." As an institute that focuses on the needs of the industry rather than academics, iACT Global offers three modes of learning; e-learning, virtual classroom and distance education.
"We conduct the Virtual Classes over the weekends and ensure that the class is in the client's comfort zone," pinpoints Abhijeet. Each virtual class will be recorded and in case of need, the clients are provided an access for the virtual class link over the mail. The teaching methodology and the study materials are other highlights of iACT Global. Although, iACT Global has become a leading player in providing online certification and training, the leadership team has bigger visions in mind. "We would like to implement new and novel measures so that we can be associated with the efforts in adding excellence in the workforce," concludes Abhijeet.
