Maintenance Masterclass Meirc Plus Speciality Training

Maintenance Masterclass

Why Attend

This specially curated Maintenance Masterclass takes place in London during our Summer Masterclass Series. Participants have the opportunity to learn from experts in the field of maintenance and reliability, gain practical experience from hands on workplace challenges, and gain insight into some of the most important aspects of the maintenance and reliability function.

Maintenance is a critical function, but often undervalued and underfunded. Done properly, maintenance can be a high value function improving asset performance and profits. The aim of this course is to provide maintenance professionals with additional models and tools to help them reposition and transform maintenance.

This is a gamification, challenge-based course with more time spent on exercises and case studies than a traditional lecture-based course. The Facilitator will focus on sharing the tricks of the trade and then putting them to use in meaningful, but fun workplace scenarios.

This course is designed to help experienced managers appreciate where best practice is moving, and less experienced engineers understand how to progress more efficiently through their careers.
