Course TypeMaintenance & Asset Management
QualificationMCP Training Certificate
Duration3 or 5 Days
The 5-day course is delivered as public workshops and onsite. It discusses the core concepts and the practical applications in a highly interactive manner. This course is suitable for those with some experience of asset management (they may have some specific maintenance experience, but little knowledge of the wider context, such as business strategy, risk management, life cycle costing etc.
The 3-day workshop is more intensive. It addresses the whole syllabus of the Certificate but assumes that most of the foundations are in place. It is suitable for those with at least 3 years practical experience in the asset-intensive industry with knowledge of business strategy, risk management, life cycle costing etc. Public and private organisations invest vast sums of money in assets. These might be infrastructure, utilities, buildings and machinery in sectors such as oil, gas, chemical, utilities, engineering, transport and manufacturing. If you sweat your assets too much they may fail and incur expensive repair and loss of product/service costs. If your asset is underutilised then capital is tied up unnecessarily. Asset management is not just about maintenance and keeping downtime to a minimum. It is about optimising the performance and minimising the cost of ownership throughout the lifecycle of the asset.
