Take your career to the next level by achieving Lean Bronze Certification. This industry leading certification is based on the Lean Certification Body of Knowledge established by the American Society of Quality (ASQ), Association for Manufacturing Excellence (AME), Shingo Institute and SME. This course is a must for companies on Lean journeys, Lean champions and practitioners charged with facilitating Lean transformation. The Bronze level focuses on the tactical application of Lean that will drive improvement and increase value within organizations, regardless of size or industry. This course is an opportunity to incorporate a solid foundation of training and validation of knowledge and experience for your Lean journey. PropelU’s focused instructor-led review session prepares candidates for the Lean Bronze Certification exam. This interactive group review of tactical lean principles will help you solidify your understanding of the Body of Knowledge and key Lean concepts, while helping you prepare for the exam. In addition, you will gain a better understanding of the portfolio requirements. A combination of concept presentations, practice exams, development worksheets enhanced with discussion and group question review is highlighted. All topics covered in the exam are reviewed by our authorized Lean facilitators to help prepare you for the Bronze-level Lean Certification exam. You will be prepared to take the exam on the last day to achieve your Lean Knowledge Certificate! This program will provide you with everything you need to obtain your Lean Bronze Knowledge Certificate, including all reading materials, the exam and one-on-one support from our Lean certified facilitators.

This course is intended to prepare participants to take and pass the Lean Bronze Certification Examination, which will be offered on the third day. 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 course fee of  $1925 CAD is all inclusive for:  the Lean Body of Knowledge Textbooks, 2 days of training, as well as, the exam fee of $660 CAD payable to SME.  If you elect not to write the exam on the third day of the course, alternate dates may be accommodated. 

Alternatively participants can register strictly to take the exam on the third day of the course for a fee of $660 CAD payable to SME.
