CRL 1-hr: 9/26 Introduction to Uptime Elements Reliability Framework and Asset Management System

“Des-Case’s focus is to help customers maximize equipment uptime and reliability, reduce costs and take their lubrication programs to a totally new level of performance,” said Mark Barnes, vice president, Des-Case Reliability Services.  “And education is one of the best ways to do that.  The seminars and workshops that we’re announcing today will help ensure everyone involved in lubrication maintenance is on the same page in building and maintaining an effective, precision lubrication program.”

Des-Case offers both a one-day Lubrication Best Practices Workshop that’s complimentary and a more intensive, three-day Machinery Lubrication Training course based on the International Council for Machinery Lubrication (ICML) body of knowledge.  The three-day seminar has a course fee, but the training will prepare participants to take the ICML certification test post-seminar.

The current class schedule is:
