    Can someone provide information if there is a true certification body for Six-Sigma? I keep finding different companies that state that certification is determined by the company that provides the training.
    So there is no national certification body in the world of Six-Sigma, but only in the training and the eyes of the beholder.

    Bill,
    As you have discovered, there is no “true” certification body for Six Sigma, either worldwide or nationally.

    Yep thats correct——BUT, certain certifications have more weight than others. For instance if you look at the bottom of the forum page The University of Texas @ Austin has a program that states “Two week course, 1 Project=Black Belt Certification”. Not exactly what I would call BB but none the less, it is a peice of paper. Real certification comes from managing projects under  MBB, not just one but several projects that have proven payback to the organization. Developing as a team leader and Champion to Green belts. The company that I got my certification under required, bottom level up training which took me 4 years to complete on the job. This included 2 weeks of Green Belt Training, and 3 projects Guided by MBB, then 2 weeks Black Belt Training (80 hours) and 4 more projects. A nice bonus given to those that finished the program. I value my Black Belt Certification because it was damn hard work to acheive. I know your thinking 4 years is a long time, and I can honestly say I spent more time on the presentations than I did on the actual projects, but thats what the boss wanted.
