Introduction to Reliability Centered Maintenance
A major challenge facing Maintenance Directors, Executives and Officers today is not only to learn what maintenance techniques are available but also to decide which are worthwhile and relevant to their organizations. If the right choices are made, it is possible to improve asset performance and reduce cost of maintenance at the same time. Otherwise, new problems are created and existing problems get worse ultimately affecting the bottom-line, profits and subsequently market share.
The two-way interactive training (comprising step-by-step coaching with in-depth discussion, case studies and group exercises), will empower delegates with cutting-edge techniques and revolutionary strategies in developing, managing, sustaining and eventually applying reliability centred maintenance concepts in their activities.

Specifically, people who occupy positions of General Manager, Head of Maintenance, Head of Operations, Superintendents, Plant Engineers, Team Leaders, Asset Managers, Engineering Managers, Head of Reliability in the following Industries will benefit immensely from this course:

What are the learning objectives?
In line with the key objectives, on completion of this course, delegates will be able to:
To introduce the concept and define the elements of Reliability Centered Maintenance, what it is and what it isn’t.
To prepare the individual and the organization for the RCM process.

No prior knowledge of RCM is required as long as a delegate has the capacity to learn and falls within the target audience enumerated under “who should attend”.
To ensure that delegates get maximum benefits, a pre-course questionnaire is expected to be filled by each delegate, which when analyzed will give an indication of each delegate’s training needs and enable the trainer deliver at an appropriate level.
After the course, the comprehensive course materials will enable delegates digest the issues further in their own time.
