How is a Lean Learning Certification different from other Lean belts?

Lean certifications are often tailored for specific purposes. For example, Lean Six Sigma is oriented for manufacturing processes. Lean Healthcare is designed for hospital environments. And Lean Office is designed to improve administration. Lean Learning is specifically designed to improve the process of training and learning. It guides L&D development from the strategic level all the way down to creating individual learning solutions.


I want a Yellow Belt now, but in the future I might want a Green Belt. Since the Yellow Belt content is included in the Green Belt, does that mean I’d have to pay for a Yellow Belt twice?

No. If you get your Yellow Belt now and decide to go for a Green Belt later, we’ll deduct the cost of the Yellow Belt from your Green Belt (or Black Belt… think big!) certification. The same is true for getting a Green Belt now and a Black Belt later.


Why is the Black Belt cost significantly more than a Green Belt?

Our Black Belt certification program is much more extensive than the Green Belt. Because Black Belts are doing Lean Learning at a strategic level, the possibilities and ramifications of decisions are much bigger and require greater levels of judgment and knowledge. Black Belts receive much more substantial coaching.


Is there a time limit on getting my certification?

Our time limits are generous, within the limits of the number of coaching sessions we provide.

  • Yellow Belt – 6 months
  • Green Belt – 12 months
  • Black Belt – 18 months


What if I can’t finish my certification in the allotted time?

Your coach will help you develop a workable schedule. If there are good reasons for needing an extension we can usually work it out.


What if I want more coaching sessions than my certification allows?

You can purchase a packet of five additional coaching sessions for $1000. You may purchase as many packets as you need.


What will I receive on completion of my certification?

You will receive a framed certificate for your wall, as well as an electronic badge that you can use for your email signature, LinkedIn profile, etc.
