When you ask the typical employee what the cost of KPMG Six Sigma Certification is, most will have a blank expression on their face. This is because there is really no way to get an accurate answer. The cost of the materials alone is very difficult to estimate. In order to get an answer you have to ask the employees themselves or representatives from the company if they are being paid enough for the Six Sigma training. In many cases, the answer you get will surprise you and put a light on the fact that you may need to rethink the cost of Six Sigma Certification.
You also have to consider if the cost of KPMG Six Sigma Certification is worthwhile for the company. There is really no need for a company to pay more than necessary to get the necessary employees trained for Six Sigma projects. The only cost that really should be considered is that of maintaining the employees you already have. If you hire someone new, you will have to spend money training them in addition to the cost of the Six Sigma Certification itself. Ultimately, the cost of training should not out weigh the actual cost of having the employees certified with KPMG.
There are ways to get an accurate cost estimate of KPMG six sigma courses, and these can be used by both small and large businesses to make sense of the costs involved. The first thing you can do is get the company’s official price tag for the six sigma training. This is usually a flat dollar amount that represents all the material that you can expect to get for the course. In some cases, this will include materials and supplies for a one on one conversation with a Six Sigma consultant.
You can also get an estimate of the cost from the company that is providing the Six Sigma training. The best way to do this is to contact the local office of the training provider. In most cases, they will be happy to provide you with their cost. When it comes to Six Sigma, there is no getting around it; you have to pay for it. However, there are ways to get a good cost estimate, even without hiring a Six Sigma consultant. Many consultants provide a cost of just over fifty percent of the course price when you are getting them to come out and give a speech for your employees.
Most companies do not charge their employees for Six Sigma certification, but you might be able to negotiate a reduced cost on the course. If there are particular areas of the course that you feel will not apply to your employees, then you might be able to get a better rate on the material. In addition, many companies offer discounts for employees who take advantage of the course and complete a set number of training sessions. Employees who take advantage of this discount get to take advantage of it even if they do not take a full course. The discount is still applied to their overall costs.
Finally, there are always specials and deals offered at the company offices. If there was ever a time that I have had a special deal with any Six Sigma companies that I will try to remember it was when we went to Thailand for an employee convention. At the convention, we were offered a day of learning in a hotel by the head of the company. We all signed up for the class and spent the whole day having fun learning about Six Sigma concepts. As an employee, that was one of the best days I have ever had!
There are definitely costs associated with getting the Six Sigma certifications. However, if you ask me, the expense is well worth the benefits that employees receive when they take advantage of the discounts and take advantage of training that will prepare them to get better jobs. What’s most important, is that employees get the knowledge and training that they need to help the company get better results. I think you will find that it is a win-win situation all around.
