It was announced at the LEGO Ambassador Network that LEGO recently approved three new LEGO Certified Professionals. The LEGO Certified Professionals (LCP) program is made up of adult LEGO entrepreneurs who have turned their passion for the LEGO brick and system into a full-time or part-time profession.
The newly accepted LEGO Certified Professionals are Wei Wei (PlayableDesign.com) from China, and Balazs Doczy (KockaMuhely.hu) from Hungary. They moved from the LCP Entry Program into the LCP Program. At the same time, Graeme (DymondBricks.com) from Canada was welcomed to the LCP Entry Program. This latest announcement brings the total number of LCPs around the world to 20. It’s a super elite group! Four of them are in the LCP Entry Program (Casper from Denmark, Kevin from the UK, Jay from South Korea, and Graeme from Canada), and the rest of them are established LCPs.
LEGO actively recruits LCPs on a regular basis based on demand at specific markets. They are selected based on their enthusiasm for the LEGO brick and building system, their working business model and ability to organize and drive building projects and/or events, their strong business plan and match with the need of the local LEGO office, their strong collaboration skills and personal dedication to core LEGO values, and their professional approach towards other LEGO fans and the broader public.
The LCP Program continues to evolve, and while building models is still at the core of the program, LCP recruits are encouraged to broaden their capabilities by providing hands-on engagement to kids, producing online content, and supporting the production of LEGO Masters, to mention a few. We have talked about the LEGO Certified Professionals program previously (see links at the end of this post), and you can also read more on the official page (please note that some LCPs are missing from the list and still need to be added).
