FACILITATOR TRAINING & CERTIFICATION
LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® is a method for exploring and dealing with real issues and challenges in real time. A workshop with the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® method is not a training course you attend. LSP is a science-based process that draws on extensive research from the fields of business, organizational development, psychology and learning. It is also a facilitated process, and the results and sustainable impact of a workshop are directly tied to the quality of the facilitation. LSP requires a high quality of facilitation to deliver full value.
Our Foundation Training Program to become a certified facilitator of the method gives you the full and complete training necessary for you to master all aspects of the method and successfully implement the method. There is no additional training or certification required beyond this program.
The training is a 4 – day program, which teaches the participants the Core Process, the Application Techniques, and the supporting theories. Participants are also given an opportunity to design customized workshop using the method. Upon completion of the Foundation Training, the facilitator can design and facilitate workshops with the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® method. The 4 – day training program is both hands-on and minds-on, delivered in a fun and intense “leaning-in” atmosphere. Our approach is for the participants to experience first, and then reflect on that experience.

This is the essential facilitator training that will cover your needs for applying LSP broadly. For more detailed information about the training curriculum, the training process and cost please email the individual trainers.

POST FOUNDATION TRAINING
Our facilitator training is a 4 – day program. Over the years we have explored, if it was possible to do it in less time. The results were negative. Trainees did not feel they were sufficiently prepared and equipped to apply LSP broadly and make relevant use of all components of the methodology.
Once you have completed your Foundation Training and gained some level of experience with the method we offer a range of facilitator development programs referred to as our Post Foundation Training Program.
These are half to one-day sessions and the general purpose is to maintain, further develop and sharpen the facilitator’s design and facilities skills with LSP and give more inspiration on how to apply the LSP method. Participation in the programs is exclusive to facilitators who have completed the Foundation Training under the Association of Master Trainers.
What differentiates the Association’s facilitator training program from other programs offered?
To learn more about the history and background for this training program compared to other training program offering facilitator training please go to our FAQ section.
The founding members of the Association are Per Kristiansen and Robert Rasmussen. Both have been involved with LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® since its very early days more than 18 years ago. They are referred to as Master Trainers in the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® method, not because they have been appointed by the LEGO Company, but because they historically developed the training programs and for a period of 9 years until 2010 ran the global facilitator training programs on behalf of the LEGO Company.
