The Blue Report Master Certification (BRMC) training is a 3-day instructor-led training camp, intended to elevate your knowledge and skillset on Blue’s report building blocks and functionalities. With enhanced understanding of the reporting functions, you will be able to better analyze the data collected while understanding and visualizing what the data is revealing, in such a way that allows for improved data-driven, well-informed decision making for continuous improvement at your institution. Upon successful completion of the BRMC training camp, the participant will be awarded the Blue Report Master Certificate and therefore be certified a Blue Report Master.


The Blue Report Master Certification (BRMC) training is to be delivered in an instructor-led face-to-face training camp format. The BRMC training camp is composed of the following:

  • Self-directed learning module, prior to the instructor-led training camp:
    • Prior to attending the camp, training participants will be required to view the video: Statistical Analysis & Reporting in Blue, which will be made available to you in our Explorance LMS. An email will be sent to you providing login information to access the BRMC course in the Explorance LMS, and you may complete this step at any point before the camp begins.
    • The video provides information about some of the key concepts to creating reports in Blue, including the statistics implemented in Blue, when and why they should be used, and how group elements are used in calculating the statistics. This information will provide the foundation for the hands-on exercises we will do together during the camp.
  • Instructor-led training:
    • This instructor-led training consists of approximately 24 hours of learning activities, including a certification activity. It offers hands-on participation and discussions required to be certified as a Blue Report Master. Upon finishing the certification activity at the end of the training, the participant will receive their Blue Report Master Certificate.
