Virtual-Hybrid is Lean Alaska’s option for a more flexible schedule, while still offering Live Training. Lean Alaska’s Virtual-Hybrid is NOT self-paced in the meaning everything is done on your own without the guidance, support, and mentorship of an experienced instructor. The Virtual-Hybrid course offers a series of videos of Lean Alaska’s Head instructor (Phil Ranck) teaching all the material. It's the same format, material, and critical real life experience that you find in the LIVE-VIRTUAL class, now it's on video so you have access to it at your own convenience.
The Lean Alaska Yellow Belt Certificate is the next step in mastering the fundamental principles of our fused methodology. This course will provide the information needed to continue on towards the Lean Alaska Green and Black Belt Certificates.
