Main­te­nance ex­cel­lence 2017 course in­for­ma­tion

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - MAINTENANCE MATTERS -

Skills 4 work has two cour­ses early this year for up­skilling in ar­eas of main­te­nance. The cour­ses are led by Rob Probst, who holds a Bach­e­lor of Sci­ence de­gree in me­chan­i­cal en­gi­neer­ing from the Univer­sity of Cal­i­for­nia at Berke­ley. He is a Cer­ti­fied Re­li­a­bil­ity and Main­te­nance Pro­fes­sional (CMRP) by Amer­i­can body SRMP.

Probst has fa­cil­i­tated pro­duc­tion im­prove­ments at 29 man­u­fac­tur­ing plants dur­ing his en­gi­neer­ing, man­age­ment and con­sult­ing ca­reer in New Zealand, Aus­tralia and the USA. He ini­ti­ated a main­te­nance ex­cel­lence ant TPM im­prove­ment pro­gramme at Fon­terra’s Edge­cumbe site that achieved World Class recog­ni­tion by IDCON Inc.

He has held po­si­tions as en­gi­neer­ing/main­te­nance man­ager at Fon­terra, Norske Skog Tas­man and CHH. He has pre­sented pa­pers on TPM and main­te­nance im­prove­ment at con­fer­ences in New Zealand, Aus­tralia and the USA.


One of the sim­plest ways to i mprove main­te­nance pro­duc­tiv­ity i s to make i mprove­ment to work man­age­ment. Few plan­ners re­ceive more than rudi­men­tary on- the- j ob train­ing to carry out one of the most i mpor­tant roles within main­te­nance.

This course gives new skill to plan­ners and sched­ulers, teach how work man­age­ment i s car­ried out i n world- class or­gan­i­sa­tions.

This course is de­signed for ex­ist­ing plan­ners, sched­ulers and co- or­di­na­tors and staff mov­ing into a plan­ning role. It leads to Unit Stan­dard 26566: Demon­strate and ap­ply knowl­edge of plan­ning and sched­ul­ing me­chan­i­cal en­gi­neer­ing main­te­nance work in the con­text of BCM.

Course dates are March 14-17 and June 13-16 ( Auck­land).


This course teaches how to progress your main­te­nance from tra­di­tional and in many cases in­ef­fi­cient, re­ac­tive and pre­ven­ta­tive meth­ods by adopt­ing more ad­vanced tech­niques.

Learn how to an­a­lyse equip­ment and plant data, then put in place the most ef­fec­tive main­te­nance rou­tines to adopt a more pro-ac­tive ap­proach to main­te­nance.

This course is de­signed for main­te­nance tech­ni­cians (elec­tri­cal or me­chan­i­cal), team lead­ers and su­per­vi­sors.

It leads to Unit Stan­dard 26565: Demon­strate and ap­ply knowl­edge of main­te­nance and re­li­a­bil­ity of me­chan­i­cal en­gi­neer­ing plant.

Course date is April 4-7 ( Auck­land).

Cost for both is $1995 + gst. REG­IS­TER AT WWW.SKILLS4WORK.ORG.NZ OR PHONE 0800 275 455
