RCM 10 Day Facilitators Course

Course Overview

A course to train personnel to apply the RCM process through facilitated workshops of a multi-disciplinary team.  


The course is fully compliant with SAE standards JA1011 and JA1012. It was developed by RCM experts at Schlumberger Business Consulting (SBC) who were trained and certified by John Moubray in the 1990s and have practiced RCM ever since. It draws on examples from the Tutor's experience in a wide range of industries at SBC (10 years) and at Aladon (11 years).


A pre-requisite for attending this course is to attend a 3-day Introductory course that is JA1011/ 1012 compliant

Course Content

Subject matter covered includes:

- The Role of the Facilitator

- Failure Finding (testing protective devices to determine whether they have failed)

- Overview of Condition based Maintenance (including much of the material from the Condition Based Maintenance Awareness Course)

- Optimisation of Insurance Spares

- Data Analysis including Weibull Analysis

- Measuring performance - Maintenance and Reliability KPIs

- Implementing RCM findings

- Redundancy and Failure Containment

Delivery Method

Learning points are reinforced by examples. Discussion and engagement are strongly encouraged. Exercises are used at several stages to ensure main points have been assimilated.


A standard case study is included and a large part of the course is set aside for a zero based case study where the delegates apply RCM to an item of their own equipment.


Delegates will receive a comprehensive set of notes.

Delegate Numbers

The minimum number of delegates for the course is 4 and the maximum is 12. This course can be held for one organisation, or on a syndicated basis with attendees from several organisations.


The course is normally held on-site because a large part of the course is the zero-based case study and it is always better to have some equipment to analyse that can be seen
