No Key Note Speaker this Year.

Welcome to the RAM X Training Summit!  The annual RAM Training Summit allows reliability and maintainability professionals across industry and government to collaborate ideas by combining presentations, tutorials, and networking with the elite among the RAM community.  The requirement that every task within Army research, engineering and development provide real tangible value to the warfighter has never been more critical.  The RAM Training Summit brings together the best of RAM professionals from industry and government to review and discuss new technologies, modeling, testing, and assessment in order to ensure that Army keeps pace with user demands within the current fiscal constraints.

RAM X again is planning to offer CRE (Certified Reliability Engineer) Test Preparation Course (Open to first 22 Only)

This course prepares the engineer for the CRE exam. It presents the body of knowledge that is covered by the CRE exam to include sample questions from prior exams. Dr. Bill Wessels is the instructor and can be contacted for additional information at (256) 876-3288 or William.r.wessels.ctr@mail.mil.  This course is just an additional $100 with registration and includes all materials.  Select one of the “+ CRE Test Prep Course” options in the registration.
