The passports are only one aspect of preparing for the Certified Reliability Leader exam. There are 5 other books in the body of knowledge.  There are 30 online training modules that include text, audio and video.  There are 1,2,3 and 4 days instructor led training courses as well.

There is NO educational requirements  however there are numerous educational resources.  

I recommend:

  • Reading the entire CRL Body of knowledge
  • Participating in Uptime Academy online learning management system
  • Participating in a 4 day Uptime Elements Reliability Leadership for Asset Performance workshop
  • Creating an immediate 3 month project

Ali M,

Certification recognizes the competence and confidence one has about a body of knowledge and this is covered by the course material, some of the live teaching and the CRL exam.

Some parts of the live course uses methods we have developed that allow the student to discover for oneself what it is to "BE" a Reliability Leader and to exercise Reliability Leadership.

That is impossible to communicate here; however one simple discovery relates to he discovery that it is only through committed action that one can create change.

The Uptime Elements and Certified Reliability Leader use a very focused and effective "execution" methodology that is single focuses and short term (90 days).

It is important to apply "knowledge" to doing and to begin expressing ones self as a Reliability Leader.

I hope that us helpful and that it supports your journey.


Ali and others,

Here are some other support resources and excellent examples of Reliability Leadership outside the classroom.  I hope you find them useful.

One the first things you will notice is that our work centers on a Reliability Leadership framework that includes four fundamentals:


  • Integrity
  • Authenticity
  • Accountability
  • Work toward an AIM bigger than oneโ€™s own self


Ask yourself: Would an improvement with those leadership factors relate to performance improvement in your organization? This is just part of the work we do with Uptime Elements Reliability Framework for Asset Performance.

 We also use it to ensure all your stakeholders "speak reliability" and to ensure executive sponsorship.

 I donโ€™t want to overload you with too much information about why Reliability Leadership is broken and what you might do to fix it but I am always here if you have any questions.

 And of course ask me any questions at  

 Have a GREAT week!

We see you have inquired about CMRP training.  The CMRP is a certification administered by SMRPCO and not AMP. 

AMP has the Certified Reliability Leader (CRL) certification which is a 2-hour, internet-based exam and has instructor-led advanced workshops which you can find at

Recommended Study Material

The Uptimeยฎ Elementsโ„ข Passport Series or full CRL Body of Knowledge is the recommended study material along with the Uptimeยฎ Elementsโ„ข Academy Learning Management System.  

These books and the online academy are both recommended resources and should be reviewed and studied prior to and in preparation for the exam. These are both resources to help set examinees up for success in passing the Certified Reliability Leader (CRL) exam. 

The approved books can be ordered through or by contacting the MRO-Zone Bookstore directly at
