Current and aspiring maintenance managers will receive the necessary tools to serve their organizations more effectively. This course meets the requirements for renewal of inspection authorization certificates.

Learning Objectives: By the conclusion of the course, attendees will have learned:

  • Techniques for managing people
  • Decision-making based on objective information
  • Inventory management, budget development, and asset management
  • Basic financial management and accounting skills
  • Regulations affecting maintenance organizations.
