Hmmm. Maybe the TMA, the Turnaround Management Association? It’s an association of turnaround consultants. Not saying their certificates are respected in-industry or not, but to become a member, I recall you have to pass 3 proctored tests (warning: not cheap, like $1k+). Maybe that counts for your purposes?
