Reliability Engineering Course for Beginners Student Testimonial

“Hi Mike,

Module 1 is completed and Module 2 is nearly done (there’s 3 modules in total). I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the course and it has given me many actionable insights that I have been able to apply to my workplace straight away.

My tutor, Thomas, has been outstanding during these modules.

Thanks for these courses, as Thomas will confirm, I’ve been doing every exercise and then doing them again in my organisation, so I’m getting real world value out of the course activities.

I’m currently doing a Masters in Maintenance and Reliability Engineering through Fed Uni in Victoria and I’ve gotten 100 times more value out of just this Intro course, than all the subjects I’ve completed in the Masters, so thank you very much for making it all available.

Best regards,”

Reliability Engineering for Beginners Course Testimonial

“Please see attached my 3T Error Proof procedure for Activity 16. Apologies for the delay, as we had a big UPS Fire on the weekend due to a short circuited battery resulting in Thermal runaway. The good thing that came out of it was that I’d used many things I’ve learnt in this course in my investigative report and the Captain said I have skills that set me apart from 99 percent of the Chief Engineers in the company. Also, the Superintendent said that I write the most thorough reports he has seen. So I’m very thankful for the tools that I have learnt out of this introductory reliability engineering course, they have enabled me to set myself apart from my peers.”

Reliability Engineering Training Course Textbook Extract

1 Introduction

Reliability Engineering looks hard to do to newcomers. Much of it is not. For everyday use in industrial operations many reliability engineering methods, techniques, and analyses are straightforward to use.

The Reliability Engineering explanations in a Reliability Engineering textbook look difficult. When you open up those books you see complex diagrams, confusing tables and charts, and statistics and probability math equations. But the Reliability Engineering textbook in this course is kept as simple as possible. The chapters start with an example to show you the use of Reliability Engineering in a practical way. Useful theory and the least math is provided only where its inclusion is valuable to understanding the topic.

The images in the book mostly come from the Reliability Engineering Training: An Introduction for Beginner’s Course presentation slides. The slides in the course cover the relevant topics and information a newcomer to Reliability Engineering needs to know. The textbook is focused on providing information and explanations related to the assignments in the course. It complements the slides and gives more details on issues and knowledge required to complete assignments well.

This book is for the every-day, practical situations that commonly arise on the operating plant and equipment in industrial companies and in vehicle fleets. It provides fundamental Reliability Engineering techniques and methods used to extract useful intelligence and solve the reliability problems of operating assets.

The Reliability Engineering Training: An Introductory Course for Beginners, was developed by expert, university-trained professionals with decades of practical experience in reliability engineering and maintenance management. The content was intentionally selected to ensure beginners were educated and trained in the most useful foundation knowledge and techniques. All the topics and methods with the greatest benefit and worth for newcomers in analyzing and solving reliability problems are what you learn in this reliability engineering course.

The course is suitable for Managers, Engineers, and specialists in the following and related disciplines and roles who want to learn reliability engineering fundamentals:

  • Industrial Engineering
  • Operations Management
  • Operations Engineering
  • Project Engineering
  • Engineering Asset Management
  • Maintenance Management
  • Production Reliability Management
  • Maintenance Engineering
  • Reliability Technicians
  • Operations Engineering
  • Safety Engineering
  • Safety Management
  • Risk Engineering
  • Risk Management
  • Defect Elimination Management
  • Engineering Graduates
  • Data Analysts
  • Quality Management

The Reliability Engineering Training: A Beginners Course is self-paced and you start your training as soon as you get the first module.

As you do the Reliability Engineering training course you’ll need the following requirements: advanced high school math, including algebra and statistics; spreadsheet data analysis and charting; access to operating equipment, machinery, or vehicles operational and maintenance history.
