ARP Leader - Online, Public and Onsite Courses
The Asset Reliability Practitioner [ARP] Leader course is intended for those who have taken the lead role in the reliability and performance improvement program. Great responsibility comes with this great opportunity, and the aim of this course is to set you up for success.
While technical knowledge is an advantage in this role, it is essential that you can lead people, communicate frequently and clearly, and have strong budget and project management skills. You must have a crystal clear vision of how the program will benefit the business and its employees, and a detailed plan, with milestones on how to achieve those goals. You must also understand the nature of the challenges that you will face and have a proactive strategy for overcoming those challenges.
This course is designed to prepare you for that role, and to strengthen your knowledge and skills if you already hold that position. It is based on 30+ years of experience seeing a relatively small number of companies truly succeed in their mission, and countless companies fail.
To ensure that your time put to best use, you can watch any part of the course, or the entire course, online before you attend the live event. And you can take it again soon afterwards to refresh your memory and improve your understanding.

Engineer-x & Leader-x
A Unique Opportunity for Reliability & Performance Improvement Professionals
Under normal reliability certification circumstances, you can take some training and have some experience, and you will take an exam and rightfully so, you are recognized for the knowledge that you have. But that doesn’t prove anything to do with your Competence. A person can be Category I, II or III because they understand what to do, but that doesn’t mean that they have ‘done it’. So we have created x for eXperience. So Engineer-x is the ‘Proven Reliability Engineer’ and the Leader-x is the ‘Proven Reliability Program Leader’. So we will go through an audit process, an interview process, and a verification and validation process to find those individuals who have done it; they don’t just know about it, but they have done it.
We believe that this is a unique opportunity for people who have different levels of knowledge, and they should be recognized for that, but also the actual experience, they should be recognized for that. Recognition that you can do it and have done it.
RMS Reliability Institute offers distance learning courses for vibration analysis at the Category I-IV level. You can learn at your own pace, with assistance from an instructor, and optionally take the exam at the end of the course.
Distance learning benefits
If the high cost of travel and accommodation, and the time away from your family and work has stopped you from receiving the training that you need, then you should consider our distance learning courses.
At a time that is convenient to you, and at a pace that works best for you, you can take our lessons and learn in a very similar way to attendees of our classroom courses. Depending upon the course, you can either view fully narrated slides, or you can watch a video of the class in action.
Utilizing the popular iLearnVibration and iLearnAlignment products, we offer distance learning courses where you can view the lessons at your own page, in your own time, and get assistance from an instructor when any questions arise. Of course, you can just buy the products and learn at your own pace without assistance, but you are sure to benefit from interaction with the instructor. In certain courses, you can also interact with other students.
These are not noisy, unprofessional videos taken from actual classrooms, each video was carefully created and edited so that you receive the full benefit. As you can see in this sample, you see the instructor talking and you see the slides (and simulators) being used in high resolution. All you need is a good Internet connection and a good monitor (1024×768 or better) and you will be ready to start learning. You can pause and rewind the video so that you can see and hear the instructor cover the topic again.
In addition to the lessons, hands-on videos are presented where a variety of vibration analyzers are used to perform a range of tests. The analyzers currently include (in alphabetical order) the AzimaDLI DCX, Commtest 4-channel VB-8, Emerson 2120 and 2130, PRUFTECHNIK VibExpert, Rockwell, SKF, and SPM Leonova Infinity. The tests include demonstrations of averaging (linear, rms, and peak hold), bump tests, run up and coast down tests, simple ODS tests, bearing fault detection tests, phase analysis, live spectrum analysis, time waveform analysis, and more.
You can also perform activities defined by the instructor, and take quizzes that will be reviewed by the instructor.
This is a great way to learn. The convenience of learning from home, and the reduced costs associated with travel, meals and accommodation make this a very attractive option – especially while the world’s economy is still recovering.
