Training recognized by the National Association of Management & Technical Assistance Centers & the Southern Growth Policies Board.
This course is intended to prepare participants to take and pass the Lean Bronze Certification Examination, which will be offered on the third day for those who sign up for the exam separately with SME. This 3-hour multiple choice exam is designed to test understanding of the Lean Certification Body of Knowledge.
The review course helps participants understand the body of knowledge that test questions are drawn from, provides practice exams and exercises to give students a good idea of what will be included in the exam, and offers several takeaways that students will find useful on exam day.
The Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME), the Association for Manufacturing Excellence (AME), the Shingo Institute (home of the Shingo Prize) and the American Society for Quality (ASQ) have partnered to develop an industry–based credential to acknowledge the lean skills of individual lean practitioners. The standard assesses a person’s lean knowledge (exam), as well as the individual’s ability to apply that knowledge (lean project portfolio). Three levels of certification progress with practitioners throughout their career: Bronze (Tactical lean), Silver (Integrated lean), and Gold (Strategic lean)
This event is a Bronze Level Exam Preparation Course (with ability to sit for Bronze exam as an option), designed to prepare students to take and pass the multiple choice, open book exam that is the first step in pursuing certification. Bronze Certification is focused on tactical application of lean. Tactical lean is the deployment and application of lean principles, concepts and methods locally, within a work cell, work group or value stream. This may be a workshop or project focused on implementation of specific lean concepts or techniques. This workshop is designed to prepare individuals to take and pass the Bronze examination, the first step in pursuing lean certification.
