RBQM Essentials – Belt Level Rankings

But what do RBQM Essentials belt levels mean? Similar to the Lean Six Sigma methodology, RBQM Essentials provides the use of a colored belt tier system for its certification. These certifications indicate the roles that individuals are qualified to play in conducting clinical trials and tutoring risk-based quality management practices. To receive a belt-level certification, students must follow a hierarchical process.

Get to know each of the rankings so you can build skills that will help your organization function more smoothly and advance your career.

Green Belt: virtual instructor-led classes

The RBQM Essentials ‘Green Belt’ is a clinical research professional who is well versed in the core to advanced elements of the Risk-Based Quality Management methodology, who leads clinical trials, and/or serves as a clinical study team member. A Green Belt possesses a thorough understanding of all aspects of the Risk-Based Monitoring method including competence in subject matters contained within the phases of risk detection, evaluation, control, communication, review, and reporting as defined by ICH Good Clinical Practice E6 (R2).

How does it work?

Through an interactive approach, the webinar-style workshop will provide lessons, case studies, and hands-on sessions, allowing you to implement RBQM in your daily practice. There will be room for knowledge sharing with all participants so that you will benefit not only from the trainer’s but also learn from each other’s experiences.
