The typical initial certification process for the TRIZ methodology would be comprised of a theoretical aspect and a practical aspect and would look something like this:
I. Coursework focused on the basic principles of the methodology:
A. Fundamentals of Systematic Innovation
B. Ideal Final Result and Ideality
C. Contradiction Theory
D. Resource Utilization
E. Function Modeling
(other topics may certainly be added but these basics are a great foundation for the application of systematic innovation)
II. Practical Application
Demonstrated application of TRIZ to problems with implemented solutions. Also, typically the completion of an exam is required.
A practitioner certified at this level should be able to use Basic TRIZ to solve problems and maximize the idealness of particular solutions. The problem solving process will become transparent and repeatability will be established. Solutions that are not in the subject matter experts psychological bias will be identified on a routine basis.
Some consulting firms that offer Basic TRIZ certification (in alphabetical order):
Air Academy Associates
Breakthrough Management Group
I hope this helps.
