Reliability Engineering Certification

An REC confirms you are proficient in reliability engineering and asset management practices, enabling you to build and manage programs consistent with ISO 55000 Asset Management standards. Be better equipped to reduce risk and increase the value that assets deliver across their life cycle to an organization.

Who this program is for

The REC is for people responsible for improving asset and capacity reliability, loss elimination, decreasing repetitive failures, building sustainable condition and risk-based maintenance programs, and creating a culture of continuous improvement.

To earn certification, candidates must complete four required courses and submit a capstone work product deliverable

  • Risk-Based Asset Management
  • Root Cause Analysis
  • Reliability Engineering Excellence
  • Predictive Maintenance Strategy

What kinds of results have been achieved through this program?

  • 60% reduction in downtime on a critical production line
  • Eliminated recurring failures
  • A 30% reduction in unplanned downtime
  • Increased OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) on a critical unloader system by 1.5% –  equaling over $1,000,000 annually
  • $210,000 annual savings by implementing design modifications recommended in the FMEA (Failure Mode and Effect Analysis) process for a system

Graduate Testimonies

“The REC Work Product drives the practices and teaches the tools to identify problems in many areas of manufacturing. Not only are the tools beneficial in driving best maintenance practices but are useful in the Continuous Improvement Process and Lean Manufacturing.”

David H., Sr. Manufacturing Engineer

“I feel that the REC program will make us a better company. Being an automotive supplier, everything is already very competitive. Any step we take to get more productivity, improved OEE, and better use of our resources only strengthens our position.”
