We live in a fast-paced global economy. Lean certification starts with the fundamentals and keeps you on track with the newest practices. Our three-tiered certification provides professional development for people in all levels of an organization: Certification in LEAN Operations (CLO), Certification in LEAN Applications (CLA) and Certification in LEAN Leadership (CPLL).

The Certification program is “hands-on” and application-based. Each certification level includes implementation activities, allowing participants to better absorb what they learn. Learn more about the Certified Professional Lean Practitioner by visiting the Professional Lean Practitioner section of our Training & Development page.

The nationally recognized Certified Production Technician (CPT) is available at CBIZ!

Earn the CPT certificate from the Manufacturing Skill Standards Council (MSSC) by completing your certification in four modules:

•    Safety Awareness
•    Quality Practices & Measurement
•    Manufacturing Processes & Production
•    Maintenance Awareness

Basic computer literacy required. Individuals may register to take the CPT or NCRC exams independently of the coursework.  To receive more information or to receive CPT course announcements, email cbiz@scciowa.edu. Include CPT in the subject line.
