Complete, detailed instruction for learning **Applied Business Statistics**, * PLUS* The complete

**Lean Six Sigma (LSS) Certifiable Training Course,**supported by the International Association for Six Sigma (IASSC).

**Applied Business Statistics:** We will take the reader from introductory/foundational material, to intermediate, and advanced levels of statistics. Month after month you will receive real-world examples, showing you how the information can be applied to your business. The most important key to applying statistics to business needs, is knowing precisely what technique to use, for your specific situation, and we will show you how. You’ll also get over 40 fully functional Excel tools, which will allow you to plug in your organization’s data and get results specific to your needs.

**Lean Six Sigma (LSS)** – The Lean Six Sigma Training Program is an on-line, self-paced course with inter-active support.

The material provided is all-inclusive for Yellow, Green or Black Belt Certification. Upon completion of this course, you will be able to understand and apply Lean Six Sigma and achieve certification if you choose to do so.

# Subscription Cancellations**

**Monthly Subscription**

You can cancel at anytime. Cancellations must be received by 12 midnight on the 14th day of the month in order for your subscription to cancel before the following month.

**Annual Subscription**

You can cancel at anytime. Cancellations must be received by 12 midnight on the 14th day of the month in order for your subscription to cancel before the following month. If you cancel an annual subscription, your refund will be at a prorated rated based on the monthly membership price.
