Reliability Engineer is a professional who has sound knowledge and understanding of principles of performance, evaluation and prediction to improve product and systems safety, reliability and maintainability.
There are various institutes which offer training and certification across the world. There are also educational institutions which offer Reliability engineering course in post-graduation level.
Which course to choose depends on some of the following criteria.
- If you are a student who wants prior qualification before starting career, joining full time course might be preferred.
- If you are a professional working in organizations which gives importance to reliability or you would like to get additional qualification for career growth, then certifications from reputed and globally recognized institution would be a preferred choice.
Key steps in getting Reliability engineer Certification
- Understand and find the requirements and exam specifics for a Certified Reliability Engineer.
- Go through the syllabus and BOK. Reviewing study guides and mock exam papers can be referred.
- Get training from reliable academy and training centre like Seven Steps Academy. Alternatively, self-study can also be done but it can take long time for preparation.
- Do online application for exam from ASQ
- Write the exam and pass them exam with prescribed marks for qualifying exam which is usually 70%.
