Lean Facilitator Certification Program

Since 2005, the Maryland World Class Consortia has trained and certified hundreds through our  flagship program, the Lean Facilitator Certification Program (LFCP).  LFCP is designed to grow your internal lean transformation specialists. This intensive four month curriculum is aimed at developing the abilities of your employees to identify, plan, execute, and sustain continuous improvement activities and projects.

Our curriculum is aligned to the national Lean Certification's Body of Knowledge, and LFCP students can optionally pursue their Lean Bronze Certification through the course, which is jointly sponsored by ASQ/AME/Shingo Institute/SME.  More information about SME Lean Certification is available online at www.sme.org/leancert.

Join the hundreds of LFCP graduates who are delivering millions of dollars of improvement value to their organizations. Build your personal lean leadership and continuous improvement capabilities!

This course can be taken "in-house" by one company or conducted with a minimum of 10 participants and hosted at participating companies for the four-week course.
