Going Lean: Yellow Belt Program

  • Training
  • Automated Learning Corporation
  • ID: 2845813
A Lean Yellow Belt is an individual with broad training in Lean principles, techniques and tools. The Lean Yellow Belt is well qualified to participate and contribute as a full member of a Lean improvement team, and to contribute in a lean production environment. As a Yellow belt, you might be expected to demonstrate some leadership and to mentor and assist other team members who have less Lean training and knowledge, but you would not be expected to act as Team Leader until you have gained additional practical experience in applying Lean in the workplace.

This Lean Yellow Belt Training is a flexible program that offers you the opportunity to learn on-line at your own pace. On successful completion, you receive a Professional Lean Yellow Belt Certificate and full academic achievement transcript listing your marks for each of the courses taken. This qualification is portable and verification for an employer or prospective employer can be provided if needed.


The Lean Yellow Belt is comprised of a set of interactive, multimedia, training courses. These on-line courses are intended for managers, administrators, operators, technicians, engineers, and trainers who require comprehensive initial training in Lean to prepare them to contribute in a Lean process workplace.

Requirements for the Lean Yellow Belt Certificate:

- Six required courses that form the core fundamentals of Lean practice
- Completion of all six courses including assessment testing for each course
- A minimum academic mastery level of 80% achieved on each assessment test

Using the Going Lean Courses

These courses are designed to allow participants to learn at a convenient time, and at their own pace. You are free to pursue the courses when and where you wish. You will require a broadband Internet connection, and a standard Internet browser with flash plugin.

The courses are listed in the most logical order for you to follow in completing the Yellow Belt program. Within each course the course modules are also arranged in a logical order. However you can take the courses and the course modules in any order you wish.

You are licensed to use these courses for one year. This means that even after you have completed a course it is still available for review purposes. In review mode you can arrow forward and back through the course material to quickly locate specific content for reference, review, or further study.

Course qualification testing is available on a course-by-course basis, so there is no single final exam. You will be required to complete six course tests to qualify. In addition, you can re-take any test if you are not satisfied with your initial result. Your highest course score will be used for your transcript.

We recommend:

- Take a course and complete all modules.
- Take the course test.
- Make notes while taking the test to highlight content that proves difficult.
- Review the course with additional study of this difficult content.
- Retake the test to demonstrate your mastery of the content.

Following this process helps you to achieve greater learning and a more accurate test assessment.

Course Times

While the time to complete each course will vary depending on prior knowledge, learning style, and individual differences, following the recommended process should take from 2 to 4 hours per course. The more study and review, the greater the knowledge and understanding, and the higher your mastery test scores. Plan your time accordingly.
