This course is designed for maintenance supervisors, managers, PM leads, CMMS managers, planners, engineers and people who are training for these positions. PM techs can also benefit from this training. Also welcome are representatives from operations (particularly production control) for their perspective and input.

Our goal, for this program, is that your staff will leave with a detailed understanding of preventive and predictive maintenance, including how to set them up, design task lists and implement the systems in your environment. This understanding will lead to reduced breakdowns, reduced interruptions and improved customer service.

In the predictive maintenance segment, students will be introduced to the various technologies. PM has always been the best method for preserving assets. Whether you maintain factories, buildings or fleets, the PM system can be the core of your proactive effort for maintaining your enduring assets.

There is much to know in designing effective PM systems for different types of equipment. This course will, in a short time, bring an entire department to a deeper understanding of how to make your PM and PdM systems and techniques more effective.
