Maintenance & Reliability Training


Learn the key elements of an effective reliability program

5 Days


Course Purpose

Maintenance and Reliability is focused on carrying out the correct maintenance on equipment, to the correct maintenance standard and at the correct time. Maintenance Best Practice (MBP) is focused on continuous improvement of the function of maintenance and its strategic contribution to business goals. One of the main drivers of MBP is to apply sound and logical strategies to improve the integrity of the maintenance programme. This course covers the main elements of planning, executing, monitoring and improving reliability of equipment in a workplace.

It starts by exploring the application of the correct maintenance techniques and trade practices, their documentation and application in the work place. From there, it explores the methods and systems for carrying out analysis of the plant
maintenance strategies, down to individual item maintenance schedules. The final part concentrates on the techniques available to constantly monitor, assess and improve the condition of plant and equipment.

The course is designed to give both reliability professionals and trades people additional knowledge and skills to enhance the reliability capability of any organisation.
