Failure Mode & Effects Analysis (FMEA) Training Course & Consultancy

FMEA Training

Failure Mode & Effects Analysis (FMEA) training delivered by Claudius Consulting meets AIAG 2019 requirements.

A process FMEA identifies process deficiencies to enable process experts to focus on controls for reducing the occurrence of producing unacceptable outputs (products and services) or on methods to increase the detection of unacceptable outputs.

A design FMEA aids in the objective evaluation of design requirements and design alternatives and increases the probability that potential failure modes and their effects on product and service delivery have been considered at the design/development stage.


Our Failure Mode & Effects Analysis (FMEA) training is ordinarily delivered over a single day as a public, virtual or in-house training course.

We can use one of your own organisational processes or products as a theme through the training as participants learn-through-doing as they apply the FMEA principles to your process or product with certificates of attendance awarded on completion of training.

Your Trainer

Kevin holds a ‘BSc Engineering Product Design’, ‘MSc Manufacturing, Management & Technology’ and ‘Level 3 Award in Education and Training’ which certifies his competence as a trainer.

He spent 9 years working as a Project Engineer for Nortel followed by 4 years working as a Product Engineer for Caradon MK Electric. Kevin then joined Ford Motor Company where he was trained and certified as a Six Sigma Black Belt in 2000 and gained extensive experience in delivering product and process improvements. He went on to receive his Master Black Belt certification whilst working for Bechtel.

He has over 18 years of experience in applying and teaching FMEA principles including recent training to Reliability Engineers at Virgin Atlantic Airways. He brings a core philosophy of ‘learning-through-doing’ to all the programmes he designs and delivers and has developed the ability to communicate the language of FMEA in simple terms.
