    I noticed that there are many consulting/training companies providing green or black belt certification.  Can these training companies provide these courses without following any standard criteria for say, blackbelt or green belt?  Is there an internationally recognized criteria for green belt or black belt?  Are there legal sanctions if a training organization will not follow these “standards”, if any?  
    I would appreciate your thoughts on this issue.

    Sounds like a stupid question.  Why would you bother hiring a firm to do your training if you aren’t going to follow their advice and process?  There is no universal standard or certifying body.  Every organization has its own twist on the subject.  While the more credible ones do provide a somewhat consistent approach and a common body of knowledge there are differences.  Since there are no standard criteria there will be no legal sanctions other than someone filing a lawsuit for non performance or fraud.
    I sense that you are interested in developing your own approach which will be totally out of alignment with common practices.  It’s a free marketplace and if you can find a fool to buy your services, more power to you.  In the long run, you will fail because there are only so many suckers born each day.

    Hi Darth, thank you for your inputs. I posted the question because I just wish to  know if there is one or none.   No more, no less.
    I am not a 6 sigma maverick, Darth.   So, please keep your cool.
    Regards,
    Anton
