LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® METHODOLOGY CERTIFICATION
How to become a certified facilitator
To become a certified facilitator who can design and apply workshops, training, meetings, and workshops using the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® methodology requires Certification of new facilitators.
Certification is an intensive and immersive 4-day 40-hour program that teaches the theoretical foundations and science behind the methodology, the Core Process, which is the essence of the method, and also the 7 Application Techniques in practice.
The LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® Method and Tool Certification is a program developed by the methodology’s creators – Robert Rasmussen and Per Kristiansen – and is linked to the Association of Master Trainers.
This training started since 2001 when the method was created, updated, and refined by the ever-evolving Master Trainers Robert Rasmussen and Per Kristiansen.
The LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® method certification program is light, fun, reflective, practical, and experiential promotes deep learning and enables participants to come out with a new way of thinking and acting.
During the training, participants also have the opportunity to design custom workshops and workshops using the method so that when they leave the immersion, they can apply their design either with a client, with their team or with their organisation.
Upon completion of the program, the facilitator will be able to design and facilitate workshops with the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® method with different approaches and themes.
