Certified Reliability Leader (CRL) Workshop

Reliability Leadership is becoming an essential business requirement in today’s volatile, uncertain and complex environment.

Safety performance and reliability performance are linked. In order to meet customers’ needs on time at competitive prices, an organization’s equipment and assets have to operate reliably and effectively.

Reliability is not just the responsibility of the maintenance department; it is the responsibility of everyone in the organization.

The Reliability Journey expressed in the Certified Reliability Leader workshop is designed to empower you and your team on a self-led journey that will unlock extraordinary value for your organization.

Reliability Leadership involves managing value delivery and the functional assurance of assets while minimizing the effects of risk and failure. It is an enterprise-wide understanding and approach that enables an organization to consider the potential impact of all types of failures, including process, information, equipment, and human failures.

Certified Reliability Leader (CRL) System draws from a body of knowledge that is based on the Uptime Elements Body of Knowledge [BoK], the same body of knowledge used by the Association of Asset Management Professionals that forms the basis for the Certified Reliability Leader professional exam.

Simply put, Uptime Elements is a map for understanding the interrelated nature of reliability elements.

The workshop is designed to new reliability leaders who will discover novel meaning to their work and interactions with the people they work with. Reliability leadership provides a basis for their decisions and will eventually drive transformation of the organization.
