AGC’s Lean Construction Education Program (LCEP)

LCI has a partnership agreement with the Associated General Contractors of America to bring Lean education to the community.

All parties involved in the construction process have incentive to get the project done faster and at a lower cost – from project owners wanting to see tangible results for their investment to contractors and designers who want to perform their role well and move on to the next project.

The structured curriculum is based on the holistic pursuit of continuous improvements aimed at minimizing costs and maximizing value at all phases of a project planning, including: design, construction, activation, operations, maintenance, salvaging and recycling.

AGC’s Lean Construction Education Course Curriculum includes:

  • Variation in Production Systems (AGC 1)
  • Pull In Production (AGC 2)
  • Lean Workstructuring (AGC 3)
  • The Last Planner® System (AGC 4)
  • Lean Supply Chain and Assembly (AGC 5)
  • Lean design and Pre-Construction (AGC 6)
  • Problem-Solving Principles and Tools (AGC 7)

The AGC Certificate of Management-Lean Construction (CM-Lean)
The AGC Certificate of Management-Lean Construction (CM-Lean) is an assessment-based certificate credential that denotes knowledge and understanding of concepts related to lean adoption, practice and process transformation outlined in AGC’s Lean Construction Education Program. Successful candidates will carry the CM-Lean designation.

Eligibility Requirements: Once CM-Lean candidates successfully complete the seven Lean Construction Education Program courses they are eligible to sit for an exam to earn the CM-Lean designation.

CM-Lean Renewal Requirements:
The CM-Lean Certificate is valid for three (3) years. The CM-Lean was designed to denote knowledge and understanding of concepts related to lean adoption, practice and process transformation outlined in AGC’s Lean Construction Education Program. Because Lean concepts are always evolving, individuals need to keep current with these advancements and continue their learning through continuing education.

Once earned, the CM-Lean Certificate is valid for an initial period of three (3) years. Prior to the three year anniversary of an individual first earning the credential, the CM-Lean holder must submit thirty (30) hours of Lean-related continuing education (CE hours) earned during the previous three (3) years.
