This course is aligned to Cardiff University’s Lean Competency System (LCS) at level 1a.
The LCS was created by Cardiff University’s Lean Enterprise Research Centre and has set the standards for high quality Lean education for over a decade. It remains the leading academically recognised Lean qualification worldwide.
The LCS Framework has three categories and seven levels of competency covering the entire spectrum of Lean knowledge and applications; with each level focussing on a specific set of competencies. Reinvigoration is one of only a few that provides training at all levels. Please view the below LCS Roadmap for an overview of Reinvigoration’s LCS Development Path, including pre-requisites, benefits and duration for each course.
To achieve accreditation, at the end of the course learners sit a timed multiple choice exam containing 30 questions which are pulled randomly from a large question bank.
Feedback is provided immediately and if the pass mark of 65% is met learners can immediately download their formal
LCS 1a certificate as a PDF.

Reinvigoration provide a detailed oversight of the Babcock training and examination process, ensuring trainees are given the highest-quality support and assessment throughout, backed with the rigour expected by top
Whilst the training programme remains ongoing, many colleagues have now successfully completed their training in Operations Excellence Management System, Team Based Problem Solving and Lean Service Awareness.
