Course Overview

This is an ASQ CRE training preparation class (Certified Reliability Engineer) for the ASQ CRE certification. The Alpha TC Professional Reliability Engineer (CRE) course consists of approximately 100 topics. This class is designed to prepare the student for the ASQ CRE certification exam. This certification is required for Reliability Engineers in many organizations.
This course includes our lecture on test taking strategies and test taking skills as well as practice exams designed to prepare the student for their certification exam. To view the BOK for the CRE go to
Expected course time = 40 hours of live stream lecture time + 41 hours testing time + 44 hours reading time + 4 hours Audio = 129 hours. Target Market: Individuals who desire to become or increase their skill level in the role of Reliability Engineer and to obtain their ASQ certification as a CRE. This training helps prepare students to become powerful reliability engineers.
Certified Reliability Engineer Training from Alpha is considered to give the best results available. This Certified Reliability Engineer Preparation Course will increase your level of understanding and the probability that you will pass the ASQ CRE certification exam.
A Certified Reliability Engineer is a professional who understands the principles of performance evaluation and prediction to improve product/systems safety, reliability and maintainability.
Candidates must have eight years of on-thejob experience in one or more of the areas of the Certified Reliability Engineer Body of Knowledge. A minimum of three years of this experience must be in a decision-making position.

Key Takeaways

Evaluate the principles of reliability engineering and apply them to assess and improve the reliability and maintainability of complex systems and processes
Analyze data from a variety of sources, including statistical process control, reliability testing, and performance metrics
Design and implement robust reliability testing plans, incorporating accelerated life testing, environmental stress screening, and other techniques to validate the performance and reliability of products and systems.
Collaborate with cross-functional teams, including design engineers, quality engineers, and maintenance personnel, to integrate reliability engineering principles throughout the product lifecycle, from concept design to end-of-life management.
