There are 3 levels of training, to give the required skills based on the reliability knowledge required for different job roles. See below.
Non-Certified training lessons are also available as classroom courses or on-line.
The ARP [A] - Advocate certification course is suitable for managers, engineers, planners, supervisors, team leaders, technicians, service providers and everyone working within an organization who in any way influences the design, engineering, procurement, maintenance planning, maintenance activities or operation of critical rotating machinery and electrical equipment. It is very well suited for in-house or onsite training to support or kick-off a company reliability improvement initiative. It gives the "big-picture" of why unreliability exists, how it creeps into an operation and what the key steps are to eliminate it. It will become clear that reliability is not the sole responsibility of the maintenance department and why it requires cross-function teamwork to deliver and sustain reliable operating equipment. A minimum of 6 months work experience is the only prerequisite. The course takes 3 days (including the exam , to complete)
The ARP [E] - Reliability Engineer course is intended for industrial reliability engineers charged with helping the organization improve reliability and performance, and for anyone else in the organization who desires to have an in-depth knowledge of the reliability improvement process. The role of reliability engineer is a critically important but challenging role. In most organizations there are almost infinite opportunities for improvement, but understanding what to change and how to change it can be difficult. This course shows that data analysis is just the start and teaches other skills and actions that are required to achieve results.
The only pre-requisite for certification is a minimum of 24 months experience.
It is not necessary to do Category 1 first.
The course takes 5 days (including the exam , to complete)
The ARP [L] - Reliability Leader course is intended for those who have taken the lead role in a reliability and performance improvement program. Great responsibility comes with this role and the aim of this course is to set you up for success. While technical knowledge is important, it is essential to lead people with clear and frequent communication, while having strong budget and project management skills. You must have a clear vision of how the program will benefit both the business and employees, with a detailed plan and milestones on how to achieve those goals. A reliability program leader needs to understand the nature of the challenges you will face and have a strategy for overcoming them. It is recommended that students have completed the Category 2 course. The course takes 5 days (including the exam, to complete)
