RCM-R Brown Belt (Certified Facilitator)
The RCM-R Brown Belt certifies that you have taken and passed the course requirements for RCM-R Facilitation and gained sufficient practical experience as a facilitator to successfully carry out RCM-R analyses without further outside help. The Brown Belt is the highest level normally attained in end-user companies that operate and manage physical assets. It is required as one pre-requisite for the Black Belt (Instructor level) certification. Black Belts may be in end-user companies with sufficient need for training or they may be consultants.
The RCM-R Brown Belt (Certified Facilitator) is earned by individuals who have met the Blue Belt (Trained Facilitator) requirements either through training or equivalence plus submitting proof of having facilitated no less than 3 complete RCM-R analyses. If those analyses are deemed to be of insufficient quality, then more may be requested.
Two (2) of those analyses must be mentored by a certified RCM-R Black belt. They must be submitted for verification if using a mentor that is not from Conscious Asset.
The third analysis is a “solo” analysis that is submitted for review and must pass our standards to be accepted. Note that the total minimum number of analyses required is 5, two of which can be the ones used to earn the Orange Belt, then after earning the Blue Belt, 2 mentored analyses, and 1 reviewed analysis. Completion of the Blue Belt certification is evidence of having attained all prior requirements including the first two analyses.
Mentoring is a “consulting” activity that must be contracted separately. For estimating purposes, allow for up to 10 analysis meetings of approximately 3 hours, for each analysis that is mentored.
