CBIZ’s extensive coursework gives participants the skills and confidence to raise questions, identify problems, and develop leadership in the transformation process. Take one course, or begin your journey to certification.

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: Lean Practitioner Level 1, Lean Practitioner Level 2 and Lean Practitioner Level 3.

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

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