Asset Reliability Practitioner Training & Certification

Manager-Engineer Awareness (Track B)

The Asset Reliability Practitioner [ARP] Category I “MANAGER-ENGINEER AWARENESS” course is intended for senior management, maintenance and operations/production management, engineers, junior reliability engineers, and condition monitoring professionals who need to understand the “big picture” of the reliability and performance improvement process.

Whether your organization manufactures products or a commodity; provides an essential service; relies on machinery/electrical equipment, or is involved with protecting their country, this course will provide a memorable explanation of how and why to improve reliability and performance.

CAT-I Course Overview

This course seeks to achieve two goals:

  1. Present the business case and explain how it is possible to assess the benefits to your organization. You can take what you learn to justify a new program, expand your existing program, or to simply breathe new life into a stale program.
  2. Demystify the concepts, terminology, and the process required to improve reliability and performance. All the keys issues will be covered, from defect elimination to the development of the asset strategy, from condition monitoring to operator driven reliability, from culture change to continuous improvement, and so much more.

This course will leave you with a clear vision of what the process is, how to justify the initiative, and all the key elements. You will learn what has worked for other organizations, and why so many programs have failed.

The course achieves these goals by utilizing animations and animated simulations that make it understandable, memorable, and interesting. Potentially complex concepts are easily explained with these proven tools. And to ensure your time is put to best use, you can watch any part of the course, or the entire course, online before you attend the live event. And you can watch it again soon afterwards to refresh your memory and improve your understanding.

About the Asset Reliability Practitioner Training & Certification Program

Practitioners and leaders involved with the important role of improving the reliability and performance of an industrial facility should be recognized for their knowledge, experience, and contribution. The new Mobius Institute Asset Reliability Practitioner (ARP) certification scheme will recognize the knowledge and basic experience of people at three levels; the Advocate who contributes to the initiative, the Reliability Engineer, and the Leader of the program. In addition, the certification scheme will separately recognize reliability engineers and leaders who have proven competence.
