leg logo

Overview:

The Lean Green Belt certification program develops an understanding of the theory and effective application of Lean concepts, tools and practices. Participants are required to target an area within their organization and leverage their learning to initiate, implement and sustain quantitative. This provides a significant return on investment for organizations who invest in Lean Green Belt training for their staff.
 
The Lean Green Belt develops staff to a point where they are competent in leading continuous improvement initiatives independently. The program can be delivered either online or within a classroom setting, where an organization registers a minimum of 10 participants or more. The program is typically completed in 3-6 months. Assessment consists of the implementation.

DOWNLOAD THE REGISTRATION FORM

Participants attend five days of classroom workshop activity and receive on-line access to LEG’s on-line Learning Management System (LMS) portal – Moodle - where they are provided with:


• On-line lessons that include case studies and practice questions
• Recorded video tutorials
• Supplementary Lean resource library
• Discussion forum

 As well as classroom tuition, full on-line mentoring support is provided throughout the program. This involves:

• Providing any clarification on subject matter queries
• Advising on suitable project selection and scoping
• Supporting participants as they undertake the project and prepare for the final exam


The assessment model that exists for the program is based on:

  • 5 Days of in-class training
  • Completion of a project
  • Final on-line examination (50%)

Participants complete an in-house project whereby they aim to focus on an area within their organization and use some of the Lean concepts, tools and practices covered in the program to initiate and implement quantifiable improvements.

Once the project report has been submitted and lesson study complete, participants need to undertake a final on-line exam to achieve certification. The final exam covers all program content. The examination is on-line, open book and 100 minutes in duration. Participants undertaking the exam are required to nominate a third party proctor to verify their identity as the participant who completed the exam in the designated time frame without any assistance. The identity of the proctor is agreed and finalized with the participant prior to the exam itself.

The program can be undertaken by individuals at any time through on-line distance learning study. Participants receive 6-month access to our Learning Management System portal (Moodle) from where they can log in at their convenience and launch each lesson, take prep exams, view and download on-line resources and interact with fellow participants and experts via the Lean discussion forum. Participants typically complete the program in 3 months, however a 6 month license is given.
