Minitab Fundamentals

Minitab Statistics and Six Sigma Software

This is a skill building course designed for Six Sigma Black Belts, strong Green Belts or others who have significant experience with statistics or Six Sigma and who would like to know how to use Minitab. They are one of the industry leading software packages for this field. This class is the equivalent of three days long but will be taught as a series of six, on-line webinars, totaling 15 hours. Despite it's formidable power and scope, it's hard to use and has an awkward user interface so is often difficult to learn without some sort of help.
