NEW VIRTUAL LEAN SERIES!
The Lean Construction Series has now moved to a virtual format. There are 13 sessions from October 27 - November 24 from 9am - 12pm on Tuesdays - Thursdays. There will be a mix of attendees from New England giving all attendees the opportunity to meet and network with a more diverse group.
This is a certificate program that consists of seven units. Following the completion of all seven units, individuals will have a deep knowledge of both the theory and application of Lean Construction and be able to sit for an exam to earn AGC’s Certificate of Management - Lean Construction (CM-LC) credential.
Make up sessions are still available!
If you missed a unit(s) you are still able to take them virtually and get the credit in order to take the Lean Exam. Please contact Kara Morgan at firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the roster.
