It depends on the content for the aim of the course. Our training is 1-week long and we expect people to work on an active project for 50% of that time in class while learning theory in the other half. We stick to the methodology and the quality tools and dont go down the statistics path. I definitely dont understand a 3 week class and if I was in charge in my organisation I certainly wouldnt allow anyone to go on training for longer than 5 days for a green belt project.
Welcome to the Cove, Paul!
How do the instructors determine the students are competent after training? How are the instructors selected and evaluated on proficiency in training?
Many of the folks here will attest folks who are proficient in a Body of Knowledge are not always able to help other folks learn that BOK.
Who designs the curriculum? Who determines whether students may need different style or method of learning to assimilate the material?
I don't mean to put you on the spot - only to point out that time, alone, is not the major criterion for a successful course of education.
