Welcome to the TOCICO Certified Expert and Alex Rogo Belt Program

Purpose and Vision for the Certification Process

To provide industry and individuals with an internationally recognized standard to assess their level of expertise in Theory of Constraints and demonstrate successful implementation results.

These results-based criteria for the new Alex Rogo Belt Levels essentially guarantee a company's return on investment in the development of their people and set it on a true path of continuous improvement in the original spirit of TOC.

Members' questions and implementation cases are answered and reviewed by our TOC experts to ensure uninterrupted learning along their development journey.

Certificates and belts are awarded at local TOC meetings. The greatest successes are showcased each year at local partner conferences and local winners advance to the annual TOCICO conference.
