Introduction to Preventive and Predictive Maintenance


MRC’s Introduction to PM and PdM Maintenance is a three-day course taught by Certified Maintenance and Reliability Professionals (CMRPs), and all sessions are held on-site with local manufacturers to enhance learning with real-life examples.  This workshop stresses hands-on exercises and teamwork in order to improve equipment effectiveness, and participants become part of a maintenance professionals’ peer group to encourage networking and the sharing of best practices.

Introduction to PM and PdM – Reliable equipment is only achievable with a proactive approach.  Preventive (PM) and Predictive (PdM) maintenance are the tactical activities companies must embrace in order to achieve this.

This course will teach you how to create world class preventive maintenance inspections, illustrate predictive technologies, how you can start using them immediately, and create an effective PM & PdM program, optimize existing PMs and show how to measure their effectiveness.
