Certifications

As the owner of Top Notch Tasks, I believe in continuous learning and helping others. The following are certifications that I have received over the years.

Lean Certification

Lean Certification is for practitioners who work on tactical projects such as problem solving or improvements to a specific area of the business; for individuals who have responsibilities for improvements to an entire value stream, from order to delivery, that involve more than a single process; and aimed at leaders at the enterprise level, who have oversight of improving the entire business and who have the ability to affect organizational structure and culture.

Former CPR & First Responder

A first responder is a person with specialized training who is among the first to arrive and provide assistance at the scene of an emergency, such as an accident, natural disaster, or terrorism. 

Leave No Trace Trainer

Participants in the two-day Trainer Course learn Leave No Trace skills and ethics as well as techniques for educating others about these low impact practices. Trainer Courses typically take place over two consecutive days and involve spending more than half of the course outdoors. Graduates of a Trainer Course are prepared to offer Leave No Trace Awareness Workshops to their community.

Research has shown that this course significantly improves participant knowledge and understanding of how Leave No Trace protects the outdoor places we love.

"Best of the Breed" Behavior Based Safety Trainer and Observer

Behavior-based safety (BBS), examines the overall safety of your workplace. Its aim is to focus attention on the daily behaviors of the workers. BBS works to determine the root causes of unsafe behaviors and the best route to improve them.

Behavior-based safety acknowledges that employees often work in less-than-perfect conditions and will be forced to make choices between working safely or taking unsafe shortcuts. To combat this, BBS looks at the interaction between three major variables in the workplace: the person, the work environment and the behavior.
