"I am writing to express my sincerest gratitude for the exceptional Green Belt training you provided. The knowledge and expertise you shared during the training program have been immensely valuable, and I wanted to take a moment to thank you personally for your efforts.
Your ability to present complex Lean Sigma Six concepts in a clear and understandable manner truly set the foundation for our success. Each class was engaging, insightful, and filled with practical examples that allowed us to grasp the concepts more effectively. Your enthusiasm and passion for Lean Sigma Six were contagious, and it made the learning experience all the more enjoyable.
Thank you again for your Green Belt training and for being an outstanding mentor and instructor. Your contributions have made a lasting impact, and I am grateful for the opportunity to learn from you."

“You are an incredible instructor. You manage to take a massive amount of information and make it “stick” in a short time through a dynamic and actionable teaching style. The class was awesome and I learned something from every participant. I’m glad the song made it memorable….someone had to do it. 🤣 I hope our paths continue to cross in the future.”
Susan, October 2022
“To wrap up, these in-person courses were the perfect fit for me and my learning style; particularly with you as the instructor. I am extremely grateful for the special effort to help me feel like a welcomed and active participant in the class. The extra time you stayed back to answer my questions, and the reassurance on proceeding to the Black Belt course was invaluable.”

“Erik is an outstanding program leader and classroom instructor. His thorough knowledge and expertise is steeped in years of application and it comes out in his engaging lectures and practical exercises. I enjoyed the opportunity to certify in his Lean Six Sigma Black Belt course. The blend of classroom lectures and practical application within teams helped me completely grasp the material and critical concepts. Our class had a 100% pass rate on the certification exam. I encourage anyone interested in Lean Six Sigma to take any course from this training organization.”
Thanks, Jason – Black Belt
“This was a great class! I learned more than I thought I would. The other students were dynamic and east to learn with and the instructor was great!”

"Thank you Erik for an amazing experience in training 15 dedicated folks from Nathan Adelson Hospice to become Green Belt certified. We feel energized and better equipped to create continuous improvement for our patients, families, community partners and employees after learning the principles of Lean Six Sigma. Kaizen here we come!"
“I have worked in the health care industry for over 30 years. In that time, I have spent countless hours and a significant amount of money obtaining CEUs and CMEs. Most of those trainings were informative and enlightening. A handful of them offered practical, behavioral strategies for improving my professional practice.”
“The week-long Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Training was, beyond compare, the single most valuable, practical and actionable training I have ever attended! Erik’s teaching style is extremely dynamic, engaging, and motivating. It is clear that he loves what he does, has a passion for continuous process improvement, and possesses exceptional skill and knowledge in Lean Six Sigma. I can return to work on Monday and immediately begin facilitating positive change using the wisdom, strategies and tools from this training.”
“If you work in an industry where increasing demands for quality are accompanied by ever-diminishing resources (and who doesn’t?), the Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Training from The Las Vegas Lean Six Sigma Training Center is definitely for you. I’m signing up for the Black Belt Training this spring!”
Kevin P. Filippelli, MS, NCC, LSSGB
“Hi Erik, I wanted to write and give you a quick update. I was just promoted to associate administrator at my hospital as part of our company’s DCFCEO (developing future CEO) program. The program is very competitive and only 1-2% of potential candidates are selected from the pool of applicants each year. Lean Six Sigma training gave me the tools to drive organizational change and develop a culture of continuous improvement at our hospital. My recent promotion is in many ways a direct result of applying Lean Six Sigma to my work. There is great value in the courses you teach and the work you’re doing. Lean Six Sigma has accelerated my professional development and placed my career on a new trajectory.”
Tij, HealthSouth Rehabilitation Hospital of Las Vegas
"Erik, I didn’t get a chance to thank you personally before you left – I can’t thank you enough for the time you spent with us this past week. I have never been particularly effective when it comes to learning in classroom settings and at the beginning of this week I really wasn’t sure whether or not I would be able to do this, but thanks to your facilitation I was able to make it and this is a really big step forward for me in my career. So thank you for being a fantastic instructor. I feel like there is a good chance I will see you again for the Black Belt course."
Jason, Hotel Evaluation Manager, Aria Resort and Casino
“Just wanted to pass on that I was hired as a Quality Assurance Supervisor here at Nellis overseeing a multi-million dollar contract. Couldn’t have made it through the interview without your classes.”
Paul Strazz, Green and Black belt student
"Hi Erik, do you remember the job that I told you that I applied for that wanted someone with a Lean certification??—Well I got the job! Starting Oct. 16 I will be the Operations and Programs Manager at the Teacher Development and Resources Library. I can’t tell you how excited I am! I love my current job, but this is a great professional opportunity for me."
Huston Green, User services, UNLV libraries
“The simulation exercise put what we learned into a real like experience that was easy to understand and will be easy to refer back to as I make process improvements in my work setting. Definitely an worthwhile class”
Jeremy Bustanoby, Therapy Lead, Healthsouth

I am employing some visual management tools. Its great stuff. I get excited about the opportunities to make the workplace better.”
