So you want to become a
Certified Reliability Engineer (CRE)?
... this course can take your skills to the next level. The level where you can be certified.
THE CRE PREPARATION COURSE.
... next course starting 8th February 2021
THAT'S RIGHT. CERTIFICATION MATTERS
A Certified Reliability Engineer or CRE is an engineer who has passed the American Society of Quality's (ASQ's) CRE Exam. Oh, and of course ... you need to know a little bit about reliability engineering as well.
And for perhaps a limited time - you can do the CRE Exam online from the comfort of your own home! This exam has traditionally been conducted in actual rooms at conferences or as part of an examination facility schedule. In North America. Which means you need to take time off work, fly to wherever the exam is, pay for the hotel room and so on. But until at least the 31st of December 2020, you can undertake this online proctored exam and finally get certified.
WE ARE HERE TO LEARN
This course is about you. Certification simply shows how much you have learned. So this course focuses on taking your skills to the next level so you can shine in your current (or future) role. So this CRE Exam Preparation course isn't just about getting you ready to pass an exam ... it is about getting you ready to take your role as a reliability engineer to the next level. A level where you get noticed for the expert that you are.
... BUT YOU NEED TO PREPARE. WE CAN HELP.
IS4's CRE Preparation Course does 2 things.
First and foremost - it teaches you to be a better reliability engineer. We follow ASQ's CRE Body of Knowledge or BOK. This covers a fair amount of reliability engineering practice and application. We not only cover what is in the BOK, but we make sure to teach it to you in a way that makes sense for your current and future reliability engineering roles.
And secondly, we give you all you need to pass the CRE Exam.
WHAT DO YOU GET WITH YOUR ONLINE IS4 COURSE.
Our live courses are run by instructors in our own studios. Everything looks and sounds sharp. And if there are lots of students, we have assistant instructors who can answer all your questions quickly and succinctly as we go.
Our catalogue courses are experiences that you will remember. We have scriptwriters who do nothing else but make sure we use words that make sense to everyone. We have animators and video editors who create visual learning cues and images to make concepts easy to grasp. And because we break our lessons into 15-minute chunks - you can really go at your own pace.
But there is more - you will get access to a specially created course webpage for 12 months. So you can (re)watch all live course lessons. So if you can't make it one day (or all days!) you don't have to miss a thing. This webpage will include all your learning resources such as handouts and charts. And of course you can talk to an instructor at any stage, schedule conversations if you are having trouble ... and pretty much anything else you can think of.
WHAT IS OUR CRE PREPARATION COURSE?
This is a 40-hour, live, online course delivered by one of our instructors. The course is broken down into 10 x 4-hour lessons delivered over a period of two weeks. But don't forget ... you will have access to the recorded lessons for 12 months.
The fundamental aim is to teach students about the ASQ CRE BOK - whose elements are listed below. The CRE Exam is dynamic and general, so we need to keep updating our course as well. The course not only goes over the key concepts but takes students through the structure and typical questions of a CRE exam.
The BOK is itself broken down into smaller BOKs as described below.
I Reliability Fundamentals which talks about leadership, practice and application of reliability engineering. Links to quality and business are made to the basic reliability definitions we need to use for the rest of the course.
II Risk Management which provides context for reliability engineering and how reducing the probability of failure is a key part of managing risk.
III Probability and statistics which is needed because failure is a random process. And of course, we talk about how you use data and your knowledge of probability and statistics to help you make decisions.
IV Reliability Planning, Testing and Modeling which is a high-level overview of how we 'get' reliability.
V Life-Cycle Reliability which covers how we make sure reliability 'remains a thing' for the entirety of the lifespan of our product, system or service.
