LEAN Certification Program

Attend a LEAN Certification course from an Accredited Training Organization (ATO) with the International Association of Six Sigma Certification (IASSC).

The LEAN certification course can be held either virtually, onsite (at your organization), virtually, or a hybrid of both. We also have virtual, live in-person, and hybrid public courses held monthly at our 50+ global training sites.

The course is full of games, videos and simulations. We will be playing with dice, legos and Airplanes to make the LEAN Methodologies come to life. The Instructors will keep you engaged and excited!

We will help you to complete your LEAN Certification project

We will help you before the course – Our Master Black Belt Instructors will help you to identify a project that will help you to effectively learn the tools and methodology of LEAN and earn your LEAN Certification in less than three months.

We will help you after the course – Our SSDSI Master Black Belts will be available to Mentor you through each stage of your LEAN Certification project.

Why we require a project for Certification and not just a test?

Earning your LEAN Certification is a process that confirms your mastery of the LEAN Tools and Methodology.

  • Certification proves you can successfully apply the tools and techniques to Continuous Improvement projects.
  • At the end of the LEAN Certification Course, you have the knowledge but have not proved that you understand how to apply the tools and methodology of LEAN.
  • By Successfully Completing the LEAN Certification Project, you will confirm understanding of how to apply the LEAN Tools in a “Real World” application.
  • Experienced Process Improvement Leaders and Hiring Managers will quickly see the lack of Project Experience.

Having recently taken a Lean Six Sigma training with the Instructors at SSDSI as a part of our organizations deployment, I found that their personable style and in-depth knowledge / experiences proved to make the perfect blend, which kept me engaged throughout the four-day seminar. They also did a wonderful job of getting the dozen or so participants equally engaged, making it a highly interactive program. I’d gladly take a training session again with the SSDSI Instructors.
