What Do Our Training Attendees Say?

(Lean Certification Program Instructor and EMS Sr. Partner) Darren Dolcemascolo is an excellent teacher with deep lean knowledge and tangible experiences to support his teachings. He is an absolute professional and very patient with all levels of students that attend his sessions. He draws out the best in the students and am sure this is how his clients are treated during their lean journeys. Given the first opportunity, Darren will be the person I call for on-site training for my organization.
Zareh Salmassian, Manager of Continuous Improvement, Amy's Kitchen
Very clear, concise, and practical view of lean and lean tools.
Maria DePool, Six Sigma Black Belt, Providence Health Systems
The class EMS delivered on Value Stream Mapping was by far the best I had attended, was simple and straight forward, and provided the greatest value. I chose to continue with both the Lean Manufacturing and Lean Business Process certificate programs with EMS. Darren Dolcemascolo is without a doubt is the best lean instructor in Southern California - he instructs based on his practical expertise.
Mike Beard, Managing Partner, VBPM
I engaged EMS Consulting Group, Inc. at Hycor Biomedical in Garden Grove CA to provide Root Cause analysis and Lean Six Sigma Green Belt certification training. Comments from the participants were very positive, and we derived a financial benefit and excellent return on our investment. I recommend EMS Consulting for their course content and very professional and effective delivery of the course content.
Phil Crusco, SPT International
For any business doing cell type work, the 'Creating Continuous Flow Manufacturing Cells' class is excellent.
