Certified Reliability Engineer – Blended Learning

Register for this course


The Certified Reliability Engineer is a professional who can carry out in a responsible manner proven techniques which make up the body of knowledge recognized by those who are experts in quality technology.

This course is designed to provide recognized reliability engineering training to the requirement of the ASQ’s Body of Knowledge and to prepare course participants for the certification examination.

Certification is the independently verified prescribed level of knowledge as defined through a combination of experience, education and examination. It is a formal recognition by peers and ASQ.

Delivery Method

The delivery method is Blended Learning. All lectures are delivered online and are available 24/7 on all devices. Lectures are supplemented by live online tutorials and four one-day workshops.


Places on this course are limited to 10 participants. Register for this course here


The course is accessible to registered students for a period of 12 weeks. The student should be fully prepared to sit the ASQ certification exam at the end of this period.

Examination Schedule

All examinations are set and corrected by the ASQ. All ASQ exams at Global Business Institute are held in June and December each year. The CRE examination is an open book examination comprising 150 multiple-choice questions and lasts 4 hours. Candidates must meet ASQ’s prerequisite requirements to sit this exam. Contact us for more details.

ASQ Exam Fee

ASQ exam fee is payable directly to the ASQ no later than six weeks before the exam date. Member:$348 Non-Member:$498. Students are encouraged to take up ASQ membership prior to registering for the exam. Cost of membership is $99.
