Material failure root cause analysis (RCA) is a systematic approach used to identify and analyze the underlying causes of material failures. It involves investigating the failure mechanisms, examining the materials, analyzing the operating conditions, and identifying contributing factors to determine the root cause(s) of the failure. RCA is essential in understanding why a material or component failed and implementing corrective actions to prevent future failures. 

This root cause analysis (RCA) course provides participants with a comprehensive understanding of the RCA process for investigating and analyzing material failures. The course covers key concepts, methodologies, and tools, such as SEM-EDS and Focus Ion Beam (FIB), used to identify the root causes of failures and develop effective corrective actions. Participants will gain practical skills in conducting RCA, enhancing their ability to improve material performance, prevent future failures, and enhance safety and reliability.

The course consists of 12 hours of live sessions with the instructor. All training content is provided through your EngineeringTrainer account.

After the course, you maintain 1-year unlimited access to the course, including any new course material. This allows you to perform modules again should you need to refresh your knowledge.

Live sessions

This course consists of instructor-led group sessions, these group sessions can be Virtual or Onsite. During these sessions participants can ask questions to the instructor which are discussed, as well as questions submitted beforehand in the learning portal.

After each live session used slides and exercise documents are made available to participants on the learning portal. Please note that for privacy reasons no recordings of the live sessions are made or provided. You receive 1-year unlimited access to the online course material. This allows you to watch content again if this is beneficial for your daily work activities and benefit from any material updates.

The live sessions are scheduled together with the customer and are private for their team only. 

Typically the training course would be scheduled as:

  • Virtual: 4 sessions of 3 hours each

  • Onsite: 2 days of 6 hours

After the course participants receive 1-year unlimited access to the slides and exercise documents used within the sessions via the learning portal. This allows them to review material when required to refresh their knowledge for daily work activities.

A personal digital certificate will be made available to each participant upon full attendance.

FAQ

This course consists of instructor-led live sessions which consist of presentations, demonstrations and discussions of questions. During each live session participants can ask questions to the instructor (through chat or microphone) which will be answered.

Please note that for privacy reasons no recordings of the live sessions are made or provided.

The training material used in the live sessions, for example the slides or exercises, will be available in the EngineeringTrainer portal for a year after the date of the training allowing you to refresh your knowledge or review material if needed. 

No, course content is not available for download.
