Maintenance Management Master Class

Cara Suites Hotel & Conference Centre, Trinidad,
14th-17th November 2023

“Most Comprehensive Agenda with many Exercises and Case Studies!”

In a tight economy, many companies are increasing the pressure on Maintenance Management Professionals to cut costs and maintain ageing assets which are sometimes required to perform outside of their original design scope.

Given this backdrop, this course is designed to equip you with the most competitive maintenance practice and assist you in driving improvements in a number of areas of maintenance by presenting new ideas, strategies and effective implementation techniques.

Through many case studies and exercises as well as a high level of interaction with the presenter, you will be actively encouraged throughout the three days to gain the most opportunities in learning and utilising the presenter’s knowledge and skills.

Using Pre-course Questionnaires to understand your learning needs in advance, this tailor made program ensures that you will leave with know how to apply what you have learnt to your own unique situations and operating environments, and a far deeper understanding on what an effective maintenance unit can deliver to your organisation’s success.

This course is based on Joel Levitt’s popular Handbook of Maintenance Management Second edition.

This course is ably led by world class expert Joel Levitt
