Becoming an ASQ CRE is one milestone in your career. It involved gathering experience and studying the broad reliability engineering body of knowledge.
It also involved an ongoing application of what you know and learn. I’ve found being a reliability engineer involves learning about materials, designs, systems, people, and tools & techniques. Mastery takes time and a good library.
Your recommended references
Whether you’re preparing for the exam or interesting in helping others prepare, which references do you recommend someone use to prepare and pass the exam?
On the Accendo Reliability site, we’ve built a listing of books (many of which are on my bookshelf) and the ASQ CRE Recommended Reading list in particular. The list today is just what I typically recommend, yet I know there is a lot of experience out there.
So share what you know. The survey takes about 2 minutes and asks you about the current recommended list, what you would add or remove. That’s it.
I’ll collect the results over the month and post the results, and update the recommended references in early January.
If you are preparing for the exam, here’s an article just on that topic.
You can find the full list of recommended reliability engineering books as a free member of the Accendo Reliability site.
