Applications are being accepted for a new UK based LEGO Certified Professional.
In exciting news for prolific builders, the LEGO Group is accepting applications for a new LEGO Certified Professional (LCP) in the UK. The LCP scheme allows talented builders to turn their hobby into a profession, with official LEGO approval – successful LCP title holders include Nathan Sawaya, Ryan McNaught and Sean Kenney.
Those seeking to apply need to possess “building proficiency, enthusiasm for the LEGO brick and building system, [a] professional approach towards other LEGO fans and the broader public” and have a plan for how they would operate a business using the LCP accreditation.
Here are the requirements that the web page lists:
The LCP applicant can document working business model for his/her business that is, based on creating unique LEGO experiences.
Can document excellent LEGO building skills.
Can document ability to organize and drive building projects and coordinate smaller events/happenings.
Established companies are not permitted to apply for LCP status.
To apply to become the UK’s LCP, builders should apply with a personal profile, business model, business plan and LEGO portfolio. All of the details, including the e-mail address to send the application to, are available at the relevant webpage.
The search for a new LCP for the UK seems to have been precipitated by Duncan Titmarsh and Bright Bricks no longer holding the accreditation, with the timing coinciding with the Live Company Group aquiring the LEGO model building company.
