Method of Delivery


Lean RCM Certificate 1The first stage of the Lean RCM Award is to achieve level 1 – Understanding Lean RCM

This unit is relevant to any candidate who is involved in asset operations and ensuring the reliability thereof. Candidates who achieve this unit should be able to demonstrate knowledge of the main theories of Lean RCM and have the ability to participate in Lean RCM analysis facilitated by a competent Lean RCM facilitator

Duration – 3-5 days (dependent on programme)

Delivery Method – Candidates will participate in EMS Cognito facilitated workshop which will comprise of theoretical based learning and task based exercises. The theoretical based learning will typically be delivered through the method of presentation from an EMS Cognito consultant. Training manuals will be issued to each candidate with copies of the task based exercises lead by the EMS Cognito consultant.

Assessment  – On completion of the workshop, candidates are required to complete a theoretical exam. The exam will be in multiple choice format and each candidate will be given 40 minutes to complete the exam in test conditions.

The next stage of the award comprises of two units, the joint assessment for both units must be completed in order to achieve Level 2 of the Lean RCM Award.

Lean RCM Certificate 2

Unit 2 – Active & Effective Contribution to Lean RCM Analysis
Unit 3 – Lean RCM Implementation

Candidates who achieve this level must complete level 1 first. On completion of this level candidates will be able to actively participate in Lean RCM analysis and implementation.

Duration – 15 days (over a 3-6 month period)

Delivery Method – Delivered as part of IMPACT Masterclass, candidates will be required to participate in a EMS Cognito facilitated analysis session and from their findings implement the improvements identified.

Assessment  – Candidates will be required to complete a combined electronic workbook for units 2 & 3. Candidates are required to collect evidence from their activities to demonstrate what they have identified from the analysis unit and then what they have implemented as a result of the analysis as part of unit 3

Level 3 of the Lean RCM Qualification also comprises of a further two units. Candidates must have successfully passed all previous levels

Lean RCM Certificate 3Unit 4 – Lean RCM Facilitation Skills Theory

Candidates must complete units 1, 2 and 3. On completion of this unit candidates will understand the skills required to facilitate Lean RCM

Duration – 3 days

Delivery Method – Candidates will participate in EMS Cognito facilitated workshop which will comprise of theoretical based learning and task based exercises. The theoretical based learning will typically be delivered through the method of presentation from an EMS Cognito consultant. Training manuals will be issued to each candidate with copies of the task based exercises lead by the EMS Cognito consultant.

Assessment  – Candidates will be required to complete a combined electronic workbook for units 4 & 5. Candidates are required to show evidence of the key skills required to facilitate a group, demonstrate how to assimilate data for MTBF values, how to use MTBF data to determine whether a maintenance task is feasible or not and demonstrate how to analyse complex failure finding scenarios.

Unit 5 – Lean RCM In Practice

Candidates must complete units 1, 2, 3 and 4. On completion of this unit candidates will have been validated to independently facilitate the Lean RCM programme.

Duration – 15 days (over a 3-6 month period)

Delivery Method – In order to complete level 3, the candidate has to lead a Lean RCM masterclass programme during which they will be supported and validated as competent by EMS Cognito during 7 days of the 15 day programme.

Assessment  – Candidates will be required to complete a combined electronic workbook for units 4 & 5 (as above). Further to the electronic workbook the candidtae will undergo observation and validation through the programme  facilitation.
