CM-Lean Renewal Courses
CM-Lean Renewal Requirements
As outlined in the CM-Lean Candidate Guide, the CM-Lean credential is valid for three (3) years. The CM-Lean was designed to denote knowledge and understanding of concepts related to Lean Construction adoption, practice and process transformation outlined in AGC’s Lean Construction Education Program. Because Lean Construction concepts are always evolving, individuals need to keep current with these advancements and continue their learning through continuing education.
Renewal Process for CM-Lean Holders:
Prior to the three-year anniversary, the CM-Lean holder must submit thirty (30) hours of Lean Construction-related continuing education (CE) hours.
Once all CE hours are submitted and approved, applicants may submit the $100.00 CM-Lean renewal fee.
CM-Lean holders will receive an updated digital badge, and their credential will be valid for an additional three (3) years.
To learn more about the CM-Lean renewal process, review the CM-Lean Renewal Guidelines.
