Course Description

Companies today face increasing competition and decreasing margins in the global arena. A culture combined with visionary leadership, relentless pursuit of process and cost reduction done right are the ingredients required for survival and growth. Equipment must be safe, reliable, and process variability must be eliminated. Your employees must be motivated and supported with targeted training and a robust and e cient organizational structure. is course is designed to heighten the learning experience and to provide an immersive training environment that maximizes the interaction between attendees and the instructor, and between the attendees


The Certified Maintenance & Reliability Professional (CMRP) program is the #1 leading credentialing program for certifying the knowledge, skills, and abilities of maintenance and reliability professionals worldwide.
The CMRP is accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), which follows globally recognized ISO standards for its accreditation and processes.
Earning this certification means earning a coveted credential recognized across all industries internationally.
