"Certified LEGO builder" is a thing?

Based in Japan​

LEGO® craftsman Jumpei, based in Japan, is the youngest LEGO Certified Professional. He became a professional LEGO builder when he was a student at the University of Tokyo. He has produced commissions for companies, TV, and publications. Many people who have seen his works rediscover the unlimited possibility of LEGO bricks. Jumpei also works in the area of education using basic LEGO bricks.


It certainly is an exclusive circle. ☺️

From the website:
Can I attend a course or get trained to become an LCP?
No, there is no training, certificate or other curriculum available. Please see the criteria above for LCP selection.
So if there is no certificate available, how do they become "certified"?

I guess “certified” translates into “officially appointed by your local LEGO office”, in addition to the criteria below:

How can I become an LCP?
In order to become an LCP, one has to fulfill two requirements:

You need to be a business owner or in the process of becoming a business owner working with the LEGO brick as part of your product/services. Important selection criteria are as stated above and will also be stated in the recruitment posting.

The LCP position is country-specific, and the recruited LCP must live and work in the same country as the local LEGO office looking to recruit an LCP.

A University of Tokyo grad? It helps to graduate from the 'best' university in Japan!

Makes sense. The main value of attending elite universities are the connections you make with the other 'elites.'
