Life Cycle Institute And KU Offer REC

Sept. 8, 2015
The Life Cycle Institute partners with the University of Kansas to offer Reliability Engineering Certification.
The Life Cycle Institute, the education entity of Life Cycle Engineering, partners with the University of Kansas to offer a Reliability Engineering Certification (REC) at the Edwards Campus in Overland Park, KS, beginning spring 2016.

The REC builds and certifies individual competency in reliability engineering and asset management. Successful candidates will apply reliability engineering to build asset management programs that are consistent with ISO 55000 Asset Management standards. Participants will learn how to:

  • Create asset management plans that comply with ISO 55000.
  • Build and sustain a strategic reliability engineering program.
  • Prepare control strategies that reduce risk and improve utilization.
  • Design predictive maintenance strategies and programs.
  • Establish a root cause analysis program.

The University of Kansas is the third top 100 engineering school to offer the Reliability Engineering Certification, according to the Life Cycle Institute. Clemson University was the first, starting in 2013, followed by The Ohio State University earlier this year

The Reliability Engineering Certification requires completion of a four-course program and documentation of the application of reliability engineering to create value for their organization. The four courses are: Reliability Engineering, Risk Based Asset Management, Predictive Maintenance Strategy and Root Cause Analysis.
