Why Should You Get Certified?

World-Class organizations recognize that success is achieved through leadership. However, they also realize that results are only delivered through engagement and empowerment of everyone in the workforce.

Leadership does not come from one person - it comes from everyone. This is especially true for reliability.

The Certified Reliability Leader is designed to deliver value to what we call the triple bottom line of:

  • Economic Prosperity
  • Environmental Sustainability
  • Social Responsibility

The Reliability Leader Certification is based on the holistic system of Uptime® Elements™ Revised Framework and the Body of Knowledge (BoK).

CRL is aimed at addressing the root causes of the high failure rate of technical implementations

There is a high rate of failure at the implementation level that can be fixed. According to research conducted by Reliabilityweb.com® and confirmed by numerous other sources – over 70% of change efforts and new strategies fail to create a sustained result. This is a paradox because the most effective strategies and techniques about maintenance reliability are well known and well documented. What is happening in the 30% of reliability initiatives that succeed?

That answer can be summed up in a single word: Leadership!

Recertification Requirements

CRL credentials are valid for 3 years at which time recertification would be necessary.

Certified Reliability Leader Workshops

The Certified Reliability Leader workshop focuses on whole life asset reliability decisions and whole life value delivery through leadership. The system provides guidance and is a map of theory, to engage and empower every stakeholder in your organization as a Reliability Leader.

Uptime Elements

Uptime® Elements™ provide a simple way to understand a holistic, system-based approach to embedding reliability into an organization’s practices and culture. By using a unified theory to explain the fundamental elements of reliability and how they relate to each other, Uptime Elements allow everyone to gain an understanding of reliability appropriate to the work they do.

Certified Reliability Leader (CRL) Advanced Workshop?

This Advanced workshop is designed for team and/or individual attendance with two objectives in mind:

  1. Teach the knowing/learning part of the Uptime Elements Reliability Revised Framework so students can begin to master the language, words, phrases, ideas and concepts and to enhance the knowledge needed to perform well on the Certified Reliability Leader exam.
  2. To lead students to discover for themselves what it is to “BE” a Reliability Leader and to exercise reliability leadership as natural self-expression.

The workshop will include lectures, audio and video case studies from industry “thought leaders” and Uptime Magazine’s Best Maintenance Reliability Program Award Winners.

This unique workshop is designed to allow attendees to take back to their organizations some of the industry’s most advanced thinking in reliability and immediately begin to utilize it. This event is an excellent primer for anyone interested in sitting for the Certified Reliability Leader (CRL) exam.

Our goal is to train professionals in the asset management & maintenance reliability job fields to become leaders in reliability and to help attendees obtain the CRL Certification.
