“I value my Lean Green Belt training over (my) Shingo credential, the Lean Sensei I received from World Wide Flow College/JcIT Institute of Technology and the Six Sigma Black Belt I earned at Motorola University (Sponsored by Raytheon). You thoroughly addressed every TPS method plus key implementation issues. You can quote me.”

The Lean Green Belt Certification Program offers an unrivaled combination of in-depth classroom sessions, mentoring and implementation projects to bring your Lean expertise to the next level. You will learn by doing – and from each other – in this highly interactive training program.
CITEC is proud to offer the Lean Green Belt Certification Program to qualified candidates and companies in Northern New York. This is a highly interactive program during which the participants become the teachers and implement change with a required Major Kaizen project in their own Value Stream (or facility).
The Lean Green Belt Certification Program is 8 days of intense learning conducted at a rate of one session approximately every three weeks for a maximum of 10 people. Through project presentations and interaction, the participants will learn by doing ... and from each other.
Drawing on the basic training participants will have acquired during the prerequisite Lean White Belt series, candidates will prepare and facilitate sessions for their fellow LGB candidates in a supportive environment that provides the guidance they need to become Lean trainers.
They will select from the following Lean Topics to customize from the perspective of their own organization’s Value Stream / facility:
Lean 101: Principles of Lean (*Taught by the course instructor with participation by all candidates.)
Value Stream Mapping: Current State & Future State
Lean Project Ranking & Implementation
Kaizen Implementation Events
5S Workplace Organization
1-Piece Flow Cells
Visual Pull: Kanbans & Supermarkets
Lean Materials Handling
Cell Teams: Technical & Social
TPM: Total Productive Maintenance
Level Production (Heijunka)
Zero Waste Culture (Cell or Work Center)
Zero-Defect Quality (Mistake Proof, Fail Safe)
Change / Transition Management
Several topics are presented by the participants at each of the scheduled sessions, conducted approximately every three weeks to allow for adequate preparation time.
In addition to learning how to teach others about key Lean concepts, Lean Green Belt candidates will each need to define a Green Belt-level Kaizen for consideration by their CITEC Lean Coach. Once approved, the participant must complete that Kaizen and submit a detailed explanation of the event, before and after photographs and the results/metrics. Certification will be awarded based on a panel review of the project submissions.
Please Note: It may take several weeks or months before participants successfully complete their Green Belt-level Kaizens and receive their certification.

Who Should Attend
The Lean Green Belt Certification Program is specifically designed to expand the expertise and implementation activities of those who have achieved Lean White Belt status. The instructor may consider comparable pre-requisite certifications if they include a thorough understanding of the 22 content topics, the participant has copies of the training materials for those topics and can verify implementation / training projects completed for those topics.

Participants who are awarded Lean Green Belt status will have proven their knowledge of critical Lean concepts and their capabilities in implementing Lean efforts at their companies. Program graduates will receive a martial arts-style Lean Green Belt and a framed Lean Green Belt Certificate. Certification is predicated on mutual agreement, between CITEC and the candidate’s own company, that the candidate has satisfactorily completed all requirements and is ready to be acknowledged as a Lean Green Belt.
We recognize this program is actually a transfer of our own Lean capabilities to the company and, therefore, we guarantee the quality of certification will be maintained at a very high level.
Each participant in the Lean Green Belt Certification Program will receive:
Lean Green Belt Implementation Guidebook (a supplement to the presentation materials and videos provided during the Lean White Belt training series)
A library of critical Lean training books / manuals, valued at more than $500
