About Us: The Council for Six Sigma Certification

The Council for Six Sigma Certification (CSSC) was established in 2005 by leading Six Sigma trainer and mentor Craig Setter. The goal has always been simple: to create a set of standards that will help training programs and institutions across the globe teach effective and applicable Six Sigma certification courses. Our accreditation program contributes to the Six Sigma industry by making sure that training and certification providers are offering courses that cover key fundamentals of Six Sigma methodology. Ultimately, we want to help both the Six Sigma industry, as well as the businesses and business professionals who use Six Sigma to improve their projects and performance.

Today, we are the largest industry accreditation provider to colleges, universities, and private training organizations worldwide.*  Not only do we provide free training materials to major universities, government agencies, and Fortune 500 companies… but we also offer inexpensive certification options for those looking to enhance their career.

Accreditation from The Council for Six Sigma is completely free and doesn’t require any renewal fees. Approved providers are added to the Six Sigma Council’s approved provider listing for free. By offering free accreditation, we at The Council for Six Sigma Certification want to help providers demonstrate their legitimacy and become trusted by professionals who are seeking training and certification from a reliable source.

As a leading industry standard to many of the world’s best training providers, we aim to strengthen the global Six Sigma industry by regularly updating our materials to reflect evolving ideas and practices. At the CSSC, Six Sigma is more than just a methodology – it’s a way of doing business. To receive accreditation, training institutions must apply and be accepted, with acceptance hindering on their commitment to the Six Sigma program and the fundamentals that make it effective.

Through its numerous free offerings, CSSC has demonstrated that it is dedicated to performance over profits. In setting standards for certification that extend across industries and countries, The Council for Six Sigma seeks not only to improve training programs industry-wide, but to improve the companies and professionals who rely on them to bring them success.
