Certified Black Belt in Lean – CBBL® 2nd Level – International Certification IIBLC® – Interactive Learning


The Live Webinar Training is designed to prepare candidates for the Certified Black Belt in Lean (CBBL®) international certification awarded by IIBLC®, the International Independent Board for Lean Certification.

Advance has designed the training to meet the needs of candidates who for personal or professional reasons cannot attend the classroom lessons. Participants can combine private study with 1,5-hour sessions,  led by a certified instructor. The Live Webinar sessions are held once per week.

The course allows direct interaction between the instructor and the participants.



The course is structured on 10 sessions (group) + 2 individual sessions for the project progress check.

The course covers:

  • Teaching
  • Access to Advance Learning Management System (LMS)
  • Three textbooks, in English:

1. Lean Project Management: Eight Principles for Success

2. The Lean Toolbox for Service Systems

3. Creating Mixed Model Value Streams

  • Slides Booklet, in English
  • Registration for the Black Belt exam


The course consists in two parts:

  1. Theory part: This part prepares candidates for the theory exam and finishes with a mock exam before candidates take the actual IIBLC® Black Belt exam.
  2. Practical part: In this part candidates prepare their projects which will be presented to obtain the prestigious CBBL®, Certified Black Belt in Lean certification of IIBLC®. This part starts with a project planning session for all course participants. This is followed by two private sessions to monitor the progress of individual projects. In a final session open to all, course participants present their final projects.

Course objectives:

  • To transfer knowledge about the tools and methods of Lean strategy.
  • To provide the knowledge necessary to pass improvement projects in various manufacturing and service environments from a “Current state” to a “Future state”.
  • To provide a practical approach to be followed in order to successfully implement Lean and to describe the cultural and organizational changes necessary.
  • To examine and discuss a participant’s specific project and to assist in the implementation of this project in order to accelerate the learning and acquisition of Project Leader skills.

The examination and discussion of projects is led by a Senior Manager with Lean expertise. This ensures that the Master course has a highly practical and results-oriented approach.
