Lack of formal training could be the reason you’re missing out on promotions, raises, or lucrative job opportunities!
As a result, your earning potential may be significantly lower than it could be, limiting your ability to provide for your family. And your career might not be as challenging and rewarding as it could be.
It’s not always possible to pay for training out of your pocket, when it’s already hard enough to provide for your family.
But here’s the dilemma: if you want to succeed in your career and earn more for your family, you need to invest in yourself. In your training and development.
The problem is, high-quality training programs, workshops, or online courses can be expensive, and free resources may not always provide the depth or industry-specific knowledge you need to succeed.
The purpose of the Reliability Academy Scholarship Program is to enable students who cannot afford our course fees to enrol in our online training courses at significantly reduced fees.
The Scholarship Program is primarily focused on students in developing nations, in medium sized companies that operate in asset-intensive industries.
However, anyone is free to apply for a scholarship and we will look at the merits of each application individually. We know that recent years have been a tough time for many Maintenance & Reliability professionals and we will not exclude anyone simply based on where you live or whether you are employed or not.
Our Scholarship Program covers 75% of the course fees. That’s massive value and our way of giving back to the Maintenance & Reliability community at large.
We now also have payment plans allowing you to pay the remaining 25% over a period of up to 5 months help with financing.
The Implementing Maintenance Planning & Scheduling Course (PS100) provides you not only with the knowledge and understanding of how planning & scheduling should work in an industrial environment, but also how to implement it.
Throughout the course, we help you to understand how planning & scheduling will add value to your business. And we teach you how to implement planning & scheduling using a proven framework that combines both project management and change management principles.
The scholarship program brings the course fees down from $1495 to $395
The PS200 Maintenance Planning & Scheduling Course provides you with the knowledge and understanding of how planning & scheduling should work in an industrial environment and how it adds value.
This course is the same as the PS100 course, but excludes the module on implementation and therefore does not grant access to the implementation framework, tools and templates
The scholarship program brings the course fees down from $995 to $195
This course focuses on the principles and practices that you need to apply when developing or improving your Preventive Maintenance Program so you can achieve higher reliability and availability whilst doing less maintenance.
Experience has shown that between 40% – 60% of the PM tasks in a PM program add little value. Poor PM programs waste time and money, do not effectively address failures, and drive our organisations into a reactive, fire-fighting culture. This course will teach you how to identify those non-value-adding PMs and either improve them or eliminate them.

Since starting the Academy in 2018, we have helped 100+ companies, trained 1000+ industry professionals, across 50+ countries in all major industries. Here’s what our students say:

The beauty of this course is that every plant out there has the framework of maintenance planning and scheduling in place (already there’s a solid base to start on), all what is left is to implement the 6 elements of planning & scheduling in their correct sequence and apply the 6 principles of both planning & scheduling and see your productivity (wrench time) increase from an average of <30% to a respectable 45% or even go to a world-class figure of >55%.
For anyone who’s tired of firefighting in their maintenance culture, PS100 is the right course”

It has to be the best course I have ever taken on Planning and Scheduling. Thank you for putting it on! I thought I knew Planning and Sheduling; now I do….

When we review scholarship applications, below are some of the criteria we will use to select successful applicants:
Ultimately, we’re looking to help people that can and want to make a difference in their organisation and help build a Reliable Plant that becomes a force for good in their local community.
Below are some important details that we want to be clear about:
Experience shows that students who get free access to an online course have a much lower course completion rate than those who make a contribution. We want to help but we also want you to succeed and implement what you learn. And that requires a commitment from your side.
Furthermore, we will need to bring on additional staff to manage additional workload associated with more students and the administrative burden associated with the Scholarship Program. The Scholarship Program is intended to be largely self-funding so that it can be sustained into the future.
Yes. If you are awarded a Scholarship, you can opt to pay the full price of the PS100 (USD 395) or PM100 (USD 495) at once or opt for 5 monthly payments (USD 99 per month for 5 months for the PS100 or USD USD 129 per month for 5 months for the PM100).
Our experience shows that students who are not ready to enrol and request an extension often do not enrol. Spots are limited so we want to offer them to students who are ready to take action.
That said we also realise that for many students that receive a Scholarship this can be a big financial commitment which is why we grant you 14 days to get payment organised.
If you’re not 100% ready we recommend you wait and apply in the next round.
We would love to, but with hundreds of applicants that will simple not be feasible. We are a small and nimble organisation. If we have to give feedback to all applications we’d have to hire someone to help with this and that would increase our costs and prices.
