    I took the ISO 14001:2015 Foundation Program at SigmaSavvy. Initially, I was skeptical whether online course would be useful or not …then I saw the 7 day , money-back guarantee and I enrolled.

    The course has been created amazingly well, with lots of examples . I also got a ppt and some formats for Internal and External Issues analysis along with the course .With the help of this course and the other material provided, I trained people in my organization and implemented the new standard. Kudos to the SigmaSavvy Team !
