ARP Category III – Program Leader

Asset Reliability Practitioner Training & Certification

Reliability Program Leader

The Asset Reliability Practitioner [ARP] Category III “RELIABILITY PROGRAM LEADER” course is intended for those who have taken the lead role in the reliability and performance improvement program. Great responsibility comes with this great opportunity, and the aim of this course is to set you up for success. 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-III Course Overview

While technical knowledge is an advantage in this role, it is essential that you can lead people, communicate frequently and clearly, and have strong budget and project management skills. You must have a crystal-clear vision of how the program will benefit the business and its employees, and a detailed plan, with milestones on how to achieve those goals. You must also understand the nature of the challenges that you will face and have a proactive strategy for overcoming those challenges.

This course is designed to prepare you for that role, and to strengthen your knowledge and skills if you already hold that position. It is based on 30+ years of experience seeing a relatively small number of companies truly succeed in their mission, and countless companies fail.

To ensure that your time 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 take 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.
