This intermediate-level course helps to further enhance the skills needed to apply core Lean principles in the workplace. This “learning by doing” style of Lean certification program is delivered by Lean Blackbelt certified coaches. Structured into three week-long modules, participants will develop and improve their presentation, communication, teamwork, facilitation and problem solving skills through group exercises, simulations, Kaizen blitzes and practical assignments.
It will include the importance of creating a safe and effective work environment, allowing for physical distancing and workplace sanitization routines to protect employees from potential exposure to COVID-19. This program can be taken in-person or online remote facilitated or a combination of the two approached in a hybrid fashion.
Our Lean Level II Greenbelt curriculum has been updated to help manufacturers navigate the COVID-19 pandemic.

UPDATED CANCELATION POLICY
In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, CME has adjusted our cancellation policies to allow members the greatest flexibility to put health and safety first while benefiting from the world-class training CME provides. Cancellations received in writing 10 days prior to the first day of the course will be reimbursed 100 per cent of the purchase price. Cancellations received fewer than 10 business days are eligible for a 50 per cent reimbursement. Participants who are not able to attend an in-person session due to illness or self-isolation will be offered the opportunity to participate virtually where possible, or to send a delegate in their stead (for single-day sessions or where missed day occurs on day one of a multi-day course).
Where neither is an option, CME will apply a credit or allow the participant to re-enroll at a later session start date to continue their learning at no additional cost.

“The CME Lean Greenbelt Training Program taught us the value of “going to the gemba.” Gemba is the Japanese word for “the place where value is created.” The gemba from our training was the insights gained from working together in teams of people from diverse industries to help companies apply Lean principles to their processes. We returned to our own company inspired and well equipped to continually improve.”
