Our curriculum is aligned to the national Lean Certification's Body of Knowledge, and LFCP students can optionally pursue their Lean Bronze Certification through the course, which is jointly sponsored by ASQ/AME/Shingo Institute/SME.  More information about SME Lean Certification is available online at
