The cost isn't a problem -- this is paid for and encouraged by my employer. Also, the fact that it's a live course with a certificate matters to my employer. Obviously, if someone has taken either of these courses and has had a negative experience, that would be important to know. But if someone has had a *positive* experience, then the question remains: Would either of these courses be appropriate for me, given the time that's passed since I studied for the CQA exam?
Dan Goldstein, I took the Black Belt/Quality Engineering Statistics class several years ago and learned a lot. At the time, the instructor used Minitab and we had instructional copies to use.
There is no way to cover everything in a 40-hour class. And that said, there is nothing like prepping with the free resources that Dan Zrymiak referred to.
