Information for employment or recruitment agencies carrying out screening or pre-employment checks
Lean Competency System certificates are issued by accredited training organisations (which are either organisation/company in-house training departments or consultancies) following the successful completion of one of their training programmes and these organisations are the primary holders of candidate records.
They should be the first port of call when the validity of a qualification is being checked. The person being checked/verified should be able to inform you of the organisation that provided the training. Therefore, the certificate would have come from:
- his or her employer
- a consultant working for his or her employer
- a public training course delivered by an accredited consultant or Cardiff Business School (including the Lean Enterprise Research Centre)
The LCS certificate that the person was issued with will also contain the logo of the issuing organisation.
If the issuing organisation no longer exists or it is unable to verify, you can forward a copy of the certificate to the to the LCS which may be able to provide a qualified statement on the certificate’s authenticity.
