Questions & Answers
I have already taken a 2-day Kanban basic course with another provider. Is that credited, too?
In addition to our Kanban System Design course, you can have all courses that were conducted by an accredited Kanban trainer and registered as "Kanban Management Foundations I" courses at the LKU credited. You can check whether this is the case in your personal LKU account.
I already took an LKU-certified basic course some time ago. Can I have this credited?
The LKU has already converted the participation of all older participation certificates that can be credited. Download your participation certificate again from the LKU website and check if it is now "Kanban Management Foundations I". If so, you can have him credited.
I haven't taken a course, but I've had a lot of experience with Kanban. Can't I skip the first block?
No. The rates are updated regularly and reflect the latest state of Kanban. The blocks build on each other in terms of content.
Can we book both blocks directly one after the other, for example as in-house training?
Even if the certification guidelines do not explicitly exclude this, a practical phase of a few months between the two blocks is strongly recommended. We therefore do not offer directly consecutive blocks.
