Training Cycle Maintenance and Asset Management 2020-2021

Anyone working today as a professional in the field of technical maintenance and/or asset management will probably agree: it is a challenging work environment! Technical installations are becoming more and more complex and less large (replacement) investments are being made in installations or factories.

Learning maintenance and asset management on-the-job is therefore certainly a challenge. That is why we organise the Maintenance Management and Asset Management course for maintenance managers and anyone who starts in a technical management position.

In addition to the important theoretical models on maintenance, reliability, maintenance management and asset management, we also bring very concrete tools and solutions that can be applied immediately in the company.

You will learn how to run a maintenance service, how to manage a maintenance budget, how to identify and realise savings opportunities ... In short, you will get a complete overview of everything needed to efficiently manage your technical maintenance service.



About the training cycle

Our training is the only complete training series in Belgium that provides a complete overview of all aspects of technical maintenance and asset management.

The cycle consists of 25 modules of 4 hours teaching time, each on Thursday afternoon. Before that there is a kick-off with the maintenance business game 'The GAME' of a full day.

At the end, you can also participate in the CMRP exam for free. With this certificate you may bear the title of Certified Maintenance and Reliability Professional.

We focus on the latest insights and only work with experienced instructors who pay attention to practical cases, exercises and a lot of interaction. The dynamics and knowledge sharing that arises in each group is of great added value to many participants.

In summary:

  • 25 modules of 4 hours, each on Thursday afternoon
  • Starts on October 8th, 2020, continues until May 2021
  • Theoretical lessons supplemented with a book package, exercises and company visits
  • Including participation in the interactive company game 'The GAME' and the CMRP exam
