There is no regular registration deadline for our events. However, we recommend booking early since events are generally fully booked 3 – 6 weeks in advance.


With simultaneous registration of several people (“collective order”), you will receive a 20% discount on the regular participation fee for this person (third participant) and every additional participant. For Lean Expert and train-the-trainer sessions, we grant a special discount: with simultaneous booking of several stages (“complete booking”), you will receive a 5% discount on the booking of stages 1 + 2 and a 10% discount on the booking of stages 1 + 2 + 3.

Staufen AG is an approved training provider that receives subsidies from the European Social Funds of the European Union (ESF). Therefore, it is possible to receive subsidies and grants for selected specialized courses. To get an overview of our specialized courses and the requirements for subsidies, click here. In addition, there are other state subsidy opportunities with which you can secure federal or regional grants for your further training – e.g. training time, WeGebAU or fee credits to put toward training fees.

In addition to the event documentation (printed or digital) and the event itself, the participation fee includes beverages, catering in the coffee breaks, and lunch. Travel costs, dinner, and hotel accommodations are not included in the price. VAT is charged in addition to the participation fee.


Basically, yes. However, you can only claim the “Lean Expert“, “Lean Trainer Staufen” and “PTW” certificates if you have attended all event modules and successfully passed the final examination. This examination is taken on the last event day of module 2 or 3. Regardless, you will receive a participation certificate after each module. Please note that if you start with stage 2, certified basic Lean knowledge is assumed and proof must be provided to the event management. You can only register for stage 3 after successful, certified passing of stages 1 + 2.

We recommend participating in stages 1 + 2 within one year. However, if you wish, these two stages can be completed more quickly. At the latest after completion of stage 2, the Lean Experts should implement what they have learned in the course of their own internal workshops and projects. This practical application is essential for the transformation of your company, even if it is not an official component of the program. Therefore, we recommend leaving a period of at least 6 months between stages 2 and 3 in order to be able to implement what you have learned in practice. Our trainers will be glad to help you formulate and conduct your workshop, especially in the role of the coach.

Within 14 days after completion of your training (for stages 2 and 3), you will receive confirmation if you have passed your final examination. Then your certificate will be sent by mail to the invoice address you have specified. Please be sure to tell us if your address changes.


For successful completion of training, you must earn 13 credit points (1 credit point = 1 training day) within 24 months by participating in the 3 mandatory core modules and optional modules. For more details, click here.
