About FMEA Online Training

All eight of our FMEA Training courses are based on AIAG (Automotive Industry Action Group) FMEA Handbooks.

  • We offer three courses based on the 2019 AIAG-VDA FMEA Handbook, 1st Edition.
  • We offer five courses based on traditional FMEAs that use RPNs using the methodology in the AIAG FMEA Handbook, 4th Edition.
All web-based courses contain a PDF Reference Guide (for a Master courses) or Quick Guide (for Overview or Targeted Training courses). These can be printed or saved to your computer.
Upon completion of a course, you will be able to print a Certificate with your score for the course and the corresponding CEUs earned. CEUs earned are based on the length of the courses; 0.1 CEU is earned per 1.0 equivalent hour of training. We use a fixed number of hours for course completion based on the average time learners have reported it takes to complete the course.

ASQ (and many other professional associations) accept training that awards CEUs. For ASQ recertification purposes, CEUs convert 1:1 to RUs.

Our web-based courses will run in all major browsers (current versions) with full support including audio. Our courses also run on tablets and some courses run on smart phones but we do not recommend smart phones for our training.
No!  In fact we advise against spending more than 45 minutes to an hour at a time on our training.  When you are done with your training for the day, just exit the course.  When you log in next time and launch that unit, you will go right back to the same place.

Why Use QualityTrainingPortal FMEA Training?

Solid Content

Developed by practitioners with thousands of FMEAs under their belts and over 20 years teaching FMEAs across industries around the globe.  Our courses provide breadth and depth and upon completion of any of our Master courses, participants are prepared to contribute fully on FMEA teams.


Available when it is needed on your schedule.  The best time to train is just before the skills are needed, but outside seminars and even in-house classes to some extent are rarely timed to meet YOUR needs.  And then there is the juggling of workload, vacations and other distractions that make live, instructor-led training less than perfect.


Eliminate travel expenses and expensive outside consultants.  Eliminate days away from work.  With our online FMEA training, the cost of getting FMEA teams comfortable with the FMEA process and terminology is a fraction of other training options.  With our subscription pricing, you only pay for the training you need with significant quantity discounts.
