Hudson gave me access to their new black belt course at no extra cost. There was a login issue at first but it was resolved swiftly. I looked at several providers before I picked Hudson. I was looking for an accredited provider there are not many out there.
Just received a free upgrade of Six sigma black belt cousrse. New course is very easy to follow and much better then the old one. I would highly recommend Hudson courses.
