    Manager of Maintenance Improvement Certificate


    When equipment plans its own downtime it is ten times more costly to get back to a safe, efficient, “run-ready” state!

    Moving from a reactive to a proactive maintenance environment has a big and positive impact directly on your bottom line. Did you know that when equipment plans its own downtime (i.e. a breakdown) it is ten times more costly both financially and in terms of capacity losses to get back to a safe, efficient ‘run-ready’ state?

    Chances are you already know you must do something to improve the reliability of your equipment but you might not know exactly what to do or how to get started.

    This one week, fully-accredited program has been designed to introduce you to nine fundamental techniques for doing just that! Your own examples will be discussed during the session to help illustrate methods being covered. Get started on your journey to World Class Reliability today.
