Advance has designed this format to meet the needs of those who, for private or professional reasons, cannot attend the classroom sessions for inter-company courses. This programme transfers Lean Black Belt knowledge from the International Independent Board for Lean Certification ( BOK.

Participants can discuss their individual study sessions in 1,5-hour live webinar sessions with certified instructors.

The course is structured across 5 sessions concluding with the final project.

The course is divided into:

a) a first theoretical phase devoted to preparing candidates for the theory exam: this phase ends with a simulated exam prior to the IIBLC® BB theory examination.

b) a second, practical, phase dedicated to the project to obtain the prestigious IIBLC® CGBL, Certified Black Belt in Lean certification. This phase offers an opportunity to all participants to get their projects underway; this is followed by two individual sessions to check project progress.



The course objectives are:

  • to transfer knowledge of Lean strategy tools and techniques
  • to provide the knowledge required to move from a "Current state" to a "Future state" of improvement projects in different production and service environments
  • to provide a practical approach to successful Lean implementation by managing the necessary cultural and organisational changes
  • to accelerate the learning and acquisition of Project Leader skills by examining and discussing a specific project proposed by the participant, and accompanying the project to implementation
  • to prepare candidates for passing the IIBLC® Lean Black Belt (CBBL) exam, which includes both a theoretical and a project element.


Request the IIBLC® Book of Knowledge (BOK) Green Belt, Black Belt and Champion for 36 euros (including VAT and shipping).


Advance also offers In-house training programmes upon request in any language.
