Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) is an analytical process used to assist in developing an optimized maintenance program delivering reduced maintenance costs and downtime, whilst optimizing the performance of systems and equipment to achieve maximum availability and Return on Investment (ROI), together with high levels of Safety, Quality, and Environmental protection.

Reliability Centered Maintenance improves maintenance decision-making by providing an objective approach to selecting an appropriate maintenance strategy and establishing priorities for focusing resources where they will deliver the greatest bottom-line performance and safety benefits. When correctly implemented it can also bring additional benefits as a Team-Building and communications exercise, and helps participants develop a better understanding of plant and equipment.


The important features of the Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) training course are:

  • Evolution of Maintenance
  • Background on RCM
  • Classifications of Maintenance
  • RCM Process Framework


Participants on the Reliability Centered Maintenance training course will:

  • Gain an understanding of the concepts and practical application of Reliability-centered Maintenance (RCM)
  • Acquire knowledge of the potential contribution of RCM to maintain efficiency and performance
  • Acquire guidelines indicating how IRBM interacts with and supports other elements of maintenance strategy particularly condition monitoring and CBM
  • Gain Hints and Tips for practical application of RCM and associated technologies so as to achieve the best results
  • Utilize a practical team-based approach to developing and implementing an action plan to apply RCM in own areas of responsibility


The Reliability Centered Maintenance training course is beneficial to:

  • Personnel responsible for Reliability Centered Maintenance
  • Maintenance, plant/facility engineering staff, rotating equipment engineers, maintenance supervisors
  • Managers at industrial plants, reliability engineers and those interested in rotating equipment performance
  • Maintenance Engineers
  • Senior Operators responsible for smooth operation of operating systems
  • Maintenance/Operations planners


Reliability Centered Maintenance training course is a hands-on, stimulating learning experience. The course will be highly interactive, with opportunities to voice your opinions and ideas. Participation is encouraged in a supportive environment. To ensure the concepts introduced during the course are understood, they will be reinforced through a mix of learning methods, including lecture-style presentation, open discussion, case studies and group work.
