Maintenance Master Certification 










This is a Six-Part training program to achieve Maintenance Excellence that is conducted off site at local manufacturers.  The course provides the hands-on skills and strategies to make the switch from firefighting to true Maintenance Excellence.

    • In a typical Maintenance Department, 90% of jobs are to repair equipment after it breaks down.
    • Because a reactive maintenance job is 5-10 times more expensive than a proactive job, costs are extremely high.
    • These sessions address different topics focused on the critical skills and methods important to world class maintenance.
    • Each session will be hosted at local manufacturing companies. Participants will receive real-life, hands-on experience while learning each topic. Training locations will be announced.


MRC is partnering with a national expert in this field to offer the Maintenance Master Certification, which includes six sessions, each focused on a critical skill or method necessary to achieve maintenance excellence: View the Brochure.
