    Portland Lean Workshop Registration Policies & Procedures

    (Note: This section will print on page 3 & 4 when you print or view in print preview)

    1. Payments:

      • Payments must be made using the PayPal button process.  PayPal accepts many forms of credit card, wire transfer or cash.

      • Please contact us if you would like to pay differently due to paying for more than 3 students or paying for multiple classes (or all 12 classes).  We will discuss your options to pay and include your reduced price when paying for all 12 classes.

      • Creating a PayPal ID for your organization is not possible.  It must be done using your personal information and then you would receive reimbursement through your employer.

      • MEC will e-mail you a PDF printable receipt within 8 hours of paying for your class.

      • To receive your complimentary free class for registering for all 12 classes, we will allow you to avoid paying for the last class, and we will provide a receipt for the entire transaction.

      • Price of class rises $20 per person for those who register within 72 hours of the class.  Late registrants will see the price reflected on the web site and PayPal basket.


    2. Registration Cancellations & Changes:

      • If you need to cancel your registration, please notify Matt Morrissette immediately.

      • Refunds for a cancellations are not provided; however, you can transfer your registration to another individual or another class date.  No administrative change fee will be applied.  A new receipt will be e-mailed to you showing the final changes.

      • Classes may be rescheduled due to bad weather.  We will never cancel a class due to bad weather, and we will work with registered students to accommodate the best new date.

      • If less than 10 registrations are received by 5 work days prior to the class, we will cancel the class.  In this case, we will refund your registration fee using PayPal's easy refund process.  If a class needs to be cancelled, the registrants who are on the Green Belt Certification class track will need to add these hours on to their qualification hours to become Lean Green Belt Certified (see those stipulations below).  We don't foresee this happening, but we need to accommodate and respect all parties investments.


    3. Coming to Class:

      • You are only required to bring necessary writing and note taking materials.

      • Classes will be taught using a LCD projector, hands-on simulation exercises, classroom computer (for you to view and try Excel & other applications), worksheets, quizzes, handouts, and breakout groups.  If you come to more than one class, we recommend creating a binder to bring and keep all class materials together.

      • We may have have a special offering at one or more of our workshops in the form of a Lean, 6 Sigma, statistics, simulation, process mapping or other related software tool.  We will notify registrants of this in case you want to bring your laptop to the class to view or trial it.

      • Please ask us beforehand and we will be glad to bring one of our on-line Lean products (simulation kits) for you to see and receive a short demonstration.  You will see all of our products over the course of the 12 months because we use them also for teaching.

      • All information is considered confidential between all parties that attend each workshop.  If your company requires a non-disclosure agreement to be signed, please bring the necessary documentation and copies for all parties.  You can make copies on site.

      • There will be complimentary refreshments including coffee.  Please let us know if you have any diet preferences, and we will accommodate your needs with no problem.

      • There is always a chance that we may need to change the venue for where classes are held.  Classes are currently being held at VTEC in Portland who have a very scalable location to accommodate under 10 and above 50 class sizes.  Class venue may change if the number of registrants and timing of when students register varies.  If students register late and there is a surge of registrants, VTEC's larger classrooms may be blocked.  Also, if we notice that most students come from a particular area, we may decide to hold the classes at a more convenient location to those customers.


    4. Lean Green Belt Certification Qualifications:

      • Taking 11 or 12 classes equates to approximately 33 to 36 hours of formal classroom Lean training.  This is equivalent to our 32 hour, 4 day Lean Green Belt Certification training class minus the Lean Green Belt project preparation and final test qualifications.

      • Students of 11 or 12 of these workshops will need to arrange 4 additional hours to learn how to complete their Lean Green Belt project preparation and final test qualifications.  We prefer that students take these 4 hours and spread them over the course of the 12 months, perhaps arranging us to conduct these four hours of training before or after one or more of the 12 workshop classes.

      • The price to complete the project and testing hours to become Lean Green Belt Certified will be determined once the total number of students is known.  The more students who choose this option will reduce the price significantly.  The standard price for our Lean Green Belt Certification class is $3,000.  Price for 11 workshops for an individual is $649 ($59/class).

      • The fee for the remaining Lean Green Belt Certification classroom training will also include the standard items provided such as:  Lean handbook, Lean audio book, Kaizen cards, Kaizen toolbox of excel forms, and Lean articles.  This fee also covers the cost of the training room, our time and these materials.

      • The four hours of remaining time to become Lean Green Belt certified needs to be split.  We will conduct preparatory training for your Green Belt project in one session.  Then we will provide follow up training to evaluate your project results and provide a Lean Green Belt written test.  Homework assignments will also be given during the course of the 12 months.
