CRE Exam Prerequisites
- You must have eight years of on-the-job experience in one or more of the areas of the Certified Reliability Engineer Body of Knowledge. A minimum of three years of this experience must be in a decision-making position. “Decision-making” is defined as the authority to define, execute, or control projects/processes and to be responsible for the outcome. This may or may not include management or supervisory positions.
- If you are now or were previously certified by ASQ as a Quality Engineer, Quality Auditor, Software Quality Engineer, or Quality Manager, experience used to qualify for certification in these fields often applies to certification as a Reliability Engineer.
- If you have completed a degree from a college, university, or technical school with accreditation accepted by ASQ, part of the eight-year experience requirement will be waived. Please consult the details on the ASQ website, http://asq.org/cert/quality-engineer/right-for-you, or call 800-248-1946.
- Register for the CRE exam separately at www.asq.org. Introductory courses in Statistics, Statistical analysis, Risk Analysis, FMEA and Reliability are advisable if you have not covered those topics in depth previously.
