    I am thinking of doing the six sigma black belt training on-line.  
    Do you know if certificates issued by Six Sigma Training University (see http://www.sixsigmapartner.com) are recognised?

    What a joke! Does it worry you that none of their key people have Six Sigma experience or that the CEO is a certified MBB by the company he founded?

    Stan,
    I guess you believe they are not recognised?
    Do you know who the ‘licencing authority’ is…?

    I don’t believe there is an “liscensing body” per se. Most of the recognizition comes from the quality of the people who perfrom in the BB/MBB roles.
    I know ASQ is well resepcted, also I recieved my BB cert from a Company called Six Sigma Qualtec, and I would recommend them.
    My advice would be to avoid any Online Certification, I wouldnt think you would get same level of interation and understanding you can gain from an expierenced MBB instructor.

    I would recommend doing the online Six Sigma Black Belt (SSBB) training through the University of Villanova, http://www.villanovau.com , as most of their students have gone on to gain American Society for Quality (ASQ) SSBB certification (they have a success rate in the high 90’s).
    Please note, however, that Villanova will only provide you with the training (includes case studies that introduce you to the tools, etc) and you will then have to find a project or projects to sit the certification exam through a certifying body.
    The Six Sigma Academy and the ASQ also came highly recommended but I found that Villanova was affordable and I didn’t need a project to go through the training as they do simulations. The instructions have vast experience in Lean and Six Sigma and are able to effectively articulate their ideas. The are also quite helpful and make time to explain concepts, tools, etc.
    I would highly recommend Villanova!

    sorry tim.  i know it’s painful to come here to ask a simple question and get responses, or lack thereof, from most folks here.
    this is one of the most informative and knowledgeable places to obtain, not just six sigma, but information about how to solve problems in general.
    unfortunately, with that knowledge based comes huge egos.
    mike and stan are the co-presidents of that club.  read their responses as they have a wealth of experience to share.  the key is to brush away the egomanical answers they, and others give.
    i’ve been lurking and posting here for over four years.  when you find yourself hesistant to ask questions in a forum where there’s no physical interaction between the participants, that’s an ego problem.
    best of luck.
