Effective maintenance is essential for all manufacturing, production, process plants, and facilities. It is dependent upon well-trained maintenance professionals who have mastered and can apply the requisite skills, knowledge, and vision to assure that effectiveness. The Maintenance Management Certificate Program provides a comprehensive management development program for existing or aspiring maintenance management professionals, as well as others interested in effective maintenance. Consisting of six 2-day sessions, the program provides proven best-in-class processes ranging from strategy, activity-based budget, and organizational development to workforce engagement that can be directly applied in the workplace upon completion of the program. A seventh 2-day session permits specialize learnings for either industrial or facilities application. Upon completion of the 7-part program, participants will receive a Certificate of Completion from the University of Alabama College, of Continuing Studies.
