For those who already have experience as an RCM2 Facilitator, the certification process is as simple as booking your technical audits and writing the certification examination.

Technical Audits

The technical audit of an RCM2 analysis provides a means to validate that the RCM2 principles are being applied by the Facilitator and that the quality of the analysis is up to the standards of The Aladon Network. The audit is performed by an experienced Aladon Certified Practitioner and is used as a tool to identify strengths and weaknesses in the facilitators application of the concepts. The technical audit assures that the designation of Aladon Certified Facilitator is synonymous with quality and consistency.

Certification Examination

The certification exam is the final step in achieving Aladon Certified Facilitator status and is administered by Aladon. The candidate will be tested on the fundamentals and application of RCM2 in a multiple choice/long answer format. The candidate must pass the technical audit portion of the program as a prerequisite to taking the exam.

Performance Coaching

Competency in the application of RCM2 cannot be achieved with classroom training sessions alone. A combination of classroom theory and practical application is necessary to be capable of developing from awareness and knowledge to competency. This progression is essential in providing facilitators with the understanding and skills required to apply these practices efficiently and effectively.

We highly recommend that facilitator candidates receive performance coaching on RCM2 analyses to prepare them for the technical audit and the certification examination. Performance coaching by a Certified Aladon Practitioner provides the feedback and continuous improvement required to develop competency and ensure the quality of delivery necessary to achieve certification status within Aladon.

During an analysis, a Certified Aladon Practitioner participates in the analysis session providing ongoing feedback to the facilitator. Upon completion of the analysis, the practitioner generates a formal written report of the facilitator’s progress and performance as well as a technical assessment of the analysis.

Onsite Coaching

Onsite coaching provides the greatest opportunity for competency development as an Aladon Certified Practitioner is able to impart his/her years of experience and expertise while interacting one-on-one with the facilitator. In this way the facilitator’s skill development and learning curve is accelerated and results assured. Optimally, the practitioner participates in the following activities:

  • In person for the duration of the first analysis,
  • In person for part or all of the second and third analyses and any further analyses as required, and
  • A formal written assessment/feedback report is provided following each coached analysis.
Remote Coaching

Although onsite coaching is always the preferred option, remote coaching is available when appropriate. This involves virtual attendance as well as offsite coaching and auditing by the practitioner using technologies that are readily available. The facilitator and the client organization benefit from our expertise while minimizing costs. The remote coaching would typically include the following activities:

  • An Aladon Certified Practitioner ‘sits in’ on the facilitation session using a web camera or views a recorded video and assesses the facilitator’s skills against the 45 competencies.
  • The practitioner conducts a 2 – 4 hour off site review and discussion of the day’s results with the facilitator at the end of each session using online meeting technology.
  • A formal written assessment/feedback report is provided following each coached analysis.
