Lean Certification (Online): Certified Lean Practitioner


Our self-paced online lean certification program covers all of the topics our classroom version covers and results in the designation of Certified Lean Practitioner. The format includes audio-visual presentation, case studies / readings, direct application of the concepts through projects for enhanced learning, and test completion. And, like our classroom version, students will have the ability to contact the instructor with questions, requests for feedback on ideas and case exercises, and advice on projects.

The program is self-paced and up to 1 year is allotted to complete it. Upon completion of the program (including a final test and successful completion of an approved project), students will receive a Lean Manufacturing Certificate (Certified Lean Practitioner) and 6 CEU's (Continuing Education Units). Registration is available below.  We can combine any of our programs with additional virtual live coaching sessions.  Contact us for details and a quote.
