Lean qualifications for individuals, consultants and organisations

Industry standard lean qualifications, developed at Cardiff University

Organisations and consultants can have their lean training programmes LCS Accredited, enabling them to issue LCS qualifications. Experienced individuals can also independently gain LCS qualifications through our Approved Prior Learning route and practitioners with LCS qualifications can register for Practitioner Membership and LCS Continuing Professional Development.

LCS Continuing Professional Development for individuals

Consciously and proactively develop your capabilities and knowledge through Continuing Professional Development (CPD) using our unique online, structured, PDCA model of improvement.

The CPD process helps you manage your own development on an continuous basis, requiring you to record, review and reflect on what you learn and practice. It allows you to demonstrate your professional standing and commitment to advancing your lean competence to colleagues, the community and clients and help you with your career development.
