What is a Lean Orange Belt?

A Lean Orange Belt is an individual with broad training in Lean principles, techniques and tools, and an understanding of how these principles, tools, and techniques might apply directly to his or her workplace. The Lean Orange Belt is well qualified to participate and contribute as a full member of a Lean improvement team. As an Orange belt, you will demonstrate leadership, and mentor and assist other team members who have less Lean training and knowledge. For most improvement activities you will work with and support a Team Leader who has a Green or Black belt and/or extensive practical experience in applying Lean in the workplace.

This Lean Orange Belt training is a flexible program that offers you the opportunity to learn on-line at your own pace, and includes both on-line interactive e-learning courses and practical hands-on exercises. These exercises are designed to be completed in parallel with the interactive courseware in order to help you apply on-the-job what you have learned. As such, they are to be approved by your manager or Lean Team leader prior to submission to ALC.

The Orange Belt supports Lean Process methodology. Through this exercise, you are provided guidance in examining the workspaces you inhabit, opportunities to consider upstream and downstream interactions, and a format for enhancing Lean discussion with your team leadership.

On successful completion, you receive a Professional Lean Orange Belt Certificate and full academic achievement transcript listing your marks for each of the courses taken, and confirming completed application exercises. This qualification is portable and we can provide verification for an employer or prospective employer as needed.


The Lean Orange Belt is comprised of a set of interactive, multimedia, training courses together with practical application exercises. These on-line courses and exercises are intended for managers, administrators, senior operators, technicians, engineers, and trainers who require comprehensive training in Lean, and its application, to prepare them to contribute in a Lean process workplace.
