The Lean White Belt Train-the-Trainer (T4T) course prepares students with the necessary training and practical experience for certification as a California Lean Academy certified instructor. The California Lean White Belt course has been developed as a one-day Lean orientation session to expose state employees to process improvement methodologies.

In order to deliver the California Lean White Belt course within your department, you must complete all criteria listed below under the “Certification Requirement” section.

Certification Requirements

Lean White Belt training content is solely for the purpose of training and used by permission from CALHR/SPB. Since completion of this course carries with it a certification, the following requirements apply:

  3. Completion and submission of the A3 project document within 30 days of completing step 3 (noted above).
  4. A commitment to deliver at least one Lean White Belt Training session per quarter within a calendar year to their department or to another department if requested by CalHR. This commitment shall begin upon successful completion of the Lean White Belt T4T.


In this three day train-the-trainer course, you will:

  • Prepare to deliver the one-day Lean White Belt scenario-based class through observation and practice
  • Explore Lean concepts and participant-centered facilitation and training techniques to increase class participation and ensure Lean Academy White Belt learning objectives are met
  • Practice delivery of the Lean White Belt course with peer and instructor coaching and feedback


Training will begin all four days at 8:30 a.m. and conclude at 4:30 p.m. You must attend each day and stay for the entire class in order to complete White Belt T4T. Note the training is very intensive so please ensure your schedule is clear and your supervisor or manager is aware of this.
