Certified Maintenance Manager (CMM) Workshop

Maintenance Leaders often find themselves in a position of responsibility without always having all the knowledge and skills required to successfully management the business of maintenance.

The Certified Maintenance Manager Workshop has an objective to complete the competencies required to create safe, sustainable and successful maintenance operations.

The Workshop is based on the three-book Strategic Maintenance Management Body of Knowledge, the same body of knowledge used by the Association of Asset Management Professionals that forms the basis for the Certified Maintenance Management [CMM] professional exam.

The Strategic Maintenance Management Workshop includes three focused sections:

Although one of the breakthrough concepts of the Uptime Elements and Certified Reliability Leader is that “you cannot maintain your way to reliability,” the system also acknowledges that you must work constantly to improve and perfect maintenance management.

Without effective and efficient maintenance management, an organization will not be able to execute reliability strategy, resulting in driving costs much higher than needed. And worse yet, it will create safety and environmental hazards, as well as a larger carbon footprint than is their right to do through wasted resources.

There is no other work as comprehensive or deep as this one that is focused and aimed at maintenance management. We highly recommend that you start to read the body of knowledge as soon as possible so you can begin your journey to strategic maintenance management.
