7. Don’t be fooled, there is no “official” Six Sigma governing body

Understanding Six Sigma Accreditation

When it comes to Lean Six Sigma accreditation there is no official governing body. In fact, we urge you to do your own research on Google when it comes to specific websites that claim to be “official” accreditation or governing bodies for Six Sigma.

One credential that you should take into consideration, is Project Management Institute’s (PMI) R.E.P. approval. This is one of the most trustworthy approvals in industry for any project management related training as providers and their curriculum must go through a strict review and accreditation process in order to get approved.
