Client Testimonials

  • I thank the entire 2ko team for a phenomenal learning experience. Special thanks to our trainer, Johan Claassen, who was exceptional and uncompromising in his training! Johan expected nothing but the very best from each of us and this is what makes the Black Belt certification valuable and cherished. I look forward to continuously improving processes, as well as my understanding of these processes!



  • I started working on the project and I am enjoying it very much! Others in the Company are also enjoying it which is making it even more exciting.

    Thanks again for all your help and guidance. I could not have asked for a better Black Belt training experience.




  • Thanks to you and the entire 2ko team for the excellent service and support during the duration of the program, it is greatly appreciated and I cannot express my gratitude.





  • I never thought that one day I will be so passionate about learning stats and using Minitab. You have made it all possible. Thank you for your continued support.






  • I’m delighted to qualify for this certification and I must acknowledge this is mostly down to the inspiration you instilled in me during the training. This is much appreciated and I would certainly pursue the Black Belt certification in due course.



  • These 2 weeks of training have honestly been more useful than the time it takes to complete a degree. I was very impressed by Johan's command of six sigma and lean. I have learnt alot and the examples that he used throughout the training made it much easier for me to grasp key concepts.
