Our three (3) day comprehensive Maintenance Planning and Scheduling course provides a combination of virtual classroom education with hands-on exercises. For organizations that have the Maintenance Planner Scheduler function, we find that less than 10% are utilized effectively. 

Our course is designed to ensure that attendees fully understand the planner / scheduler role(s) along with expectations of the supporting roles such as the maintenance supervisor, and the production supervisor. The course focuses on the benefits, roles and responsibilities, craft efficiencies, elimination of avoidable delays, partnerships, processes, job planning, the materials management and operations interfaces, scheduling, and coordination plus much more. Attendees will be able to take their classroom experiences and immediately apply them on returning to the site.
