Student Testimonials for the Lifetime Reliability Solutions Maintenance Planning and Scheduling Training Course


Testimonial on the online Maintenance Planning & Scheduling Training Course:

"Thanks Mike, I must say I am really proud of this achievement (First Class Maintenance Planning and Scheduling Certificate). Although I have been at Hitachi for nearly seventeen years my background was in the parts area. Reman pumps was started five years ago to service our excavators in the mining industry.

Three years ago Hitachi could really see the value in Reman pumps and motors, so hired a full time manager purely to see Reman nurtured to its potential. I donít know what this manager saw in me, but he convinced me to come on board as the only non trades person at Reman to organise stores, paint and package units, control core returns and slowly develop a system to run the Reman operations. At that stage we were producing about thirty units a month. Three years later we are now producing 130 units a month. With further expansion of Reman underway at the moment, we will ramp-up production gradually to produce 500 units per month within the next two years (as I say one hell of an expansion happening).

So, long story short, the manager had the basics in place but knew we needed to improve on all our processes, procedures, safety, training, stores holding, available resources and improved subcontract work. This is where I come back in, Reman needed a component planner and scheduler. I applied, the manager gave me the position and set me to task, but 12 months in I needed to understand more about the when, where and why of planning and scheduling to achieve our goal. So I started your online planning and scheduling course.

Each time I learnt something new from you I would implement it or suggest we change something for the better. Once the boss got suspicious about what I was doing and he started making sense of what I was changing, I finally told him about you and and the course (sometime into Module 3 I think) So finally, we needed to improve all our processes and procedures, as well as manage job time to a greater level. We are achieving this. We have put into place a parts system to ensure jobs will be built on schedule; better communication with the boys on the shop floor (I run a daily Production meeting) and our jobs' status has a more visual impact than ever before. We will constantly continue to improve and evolve.

A by product from working with you is the improvement in my IT skills. Whoíd a thought it at 55 YO. Thanks again Mike for everything youíve done. Will be happily recommending Lifetime Reliabilty Solution."

Peter Thompson, Reman Pumps, Australia


Testimonial for the online Maintenance Planning & Scheduling Training Course:

"Dear Mike,

I am so grateful to you for my successful completion of this maintenance planning course. It has really improved my understanding of my job requirements. I started this course just after I was given a maintenance planner position. I just had the basics of planning and scheduling. Going through each module and completing each assignment was both challenging and interesting.

Now I know that with accurate planning and on-time scheduling, my crew can perform maintenance tasks safely and greatly improve the equipment availability and reliability.

Thank you so much for your patience and knowledge imparted to me."

Justine Boampong, Golden Star Resources, Ghana, Africa


Testimonial for the online Maintenance Planning & Scheduling Training Course:

"Dear Mike,

I have found the course content interesting, particularly when I was able to apply the concepts and processes in my work as an Asset Management Technical Officer.

The competencies I have gained from the course are already helping to improve the quality of our routine maintenance planning.

We are also developing better prepared work packs for our refurbishment and enhancement projects. Feedback from our project managers and supervisors is positive."

Doug Collier, Irrigation & Drainage Asset Management, Sunwater Ltd, Australia


Testimonial for the online Maintenance Planning & Training Scheduling Course:

"Hi Mike,

Thank you for all your help. I have found this course of major benefit to me.

Little did I think at 53 years of age that I would be still learning at this level.

The amount of information, graphs, etc. that were in the course content were fantastic.

The course and its delivery were perfect for me and I would have great pleasure in recommending you to anybody."

Kieran Griffin, Technical Services, DePuy Orthopaedics Worldwide, Ireland


Testimonial of the online Maintenance Planning & Scheduling Training Course:

"Thanks very much Mike,

The course was very useful to my work that Iím doing now, the presentation is clear as well as the 10 Modules Course book which included the sample or the guide for completed assignment.

Iíve gained lots from the training. I can say the course helped to clarified many confusing questions which I had in the past years since started to be Maintenance Planner and now I realise what will be the effect if weíre not Planning and Scheduling proper!!!

I enjoyed training with you and MPS Online course as well."

Ohnouma Soukhaphon, Maintenance Planner - Outages, MMG LXML Sepon, Laos PDR


Testimonial of the online Maintenance Planning & Scheduling Training Course:

"Hi Mike,

May I kindly appreciate your effort and assistance for the online maintenance planning course you are currently offering. I am happy as I have learnt something which will help me in my daily Planning and Scheduling. I thought what I knew was enough as a maintenance planner, but I came to realise afterwards that I would have missed an opportunity to know what I have archived so far.

Iíve gained lots from the maintenance planning online training course. I can say the course helped to clarified many confusing questions which I had in the past years since I started to be Maintenance Planner, and now I realise what will be the effect if weíre not Planning and Scheduling proper!!!

I enjoyed training with you and the maintenance planning and scheduling online course as well."

Estack Siyanda, Maintenance Planner, FQML Mining, Zambia


Testimonial on the online Maintenance Planning & Scheduling Training Course:

"I'm so pumped to take this course Mike. You have no idea.

I've been looking into different schools for months now and I have always been drawn back to your website and courses, even though it was not a college or university. Plus I was reluctant because it was based out of Australia. But at the end of the day the courses are exactly what I am looking for and geared directly towards my job.

The course outline seems to be exactly what I need to make the department more efficient. I have no maintenance planning and scheduling training behind me—I went from working as an underground construction miner to a senior maintenance coordinator. I know the industry and I know the process, and this kind of training would be an asset.

Thank you again for your time."

Jody O'Keefe, First Nickel Inc., Canada

How to quickly complete the Maintenance Planning and

You do the course at your own pace; one module at a time. Past students have completed the tutored online maintenance planning and scheduling course within eight (8) months. The usual time to complete the maintenance planning training course by distance education is twelve (12) months.

Our recommendation is to complete the course within 10-12 months of starting it. The way to get through the course most quickly is to set aside a 3-4 hour period every week to work through each maintenance planning and scheduing training module. Pick the best part of the day for you to concentrate and start viewing the PowerPoint slides and listening to the audio. Do the assignments once the slide presentation ends. Send your Tutor each assignment once you are done. During the following week your Tutor will give you feedback on the assignment. If you need to make changes do so in your next scheduled training session and resubmit your work. Then start on the next module in your maintenance planning and scheduling training course until you complete them all.

From the very first module they study, Students discover better maintenance planning solutions and start using better maintenance planning practices.

Maintenance Planning and Scheduling Course Prerequisites
and Prior Industrial Equipment Experience


Having technical qualifications is not a necessity to do the maintenance planning and scheduling course, but you will need to learn and understand some basic technical and engineering topics. Those with less technical and equipment knowledge will need to do more background reading and research than those people who have a mechanical or electrical trade or higher qualifications. What is important is to have access to manufacturers information on the machines and equipment in your operation. You will do your own research and reading on the Internet for the topics covered in the course. Your allocated Tutor can also help you by answering questions.

This maintenance planning and scheduling course incorporates best practice methods that make maintenance planning more effective. You learn to use unique risk assessment tools that help maintenance planners and schedulers correctly allocate work priorities. The course provides you with powerful work quality assurance techniques that let you write world class maintenance procedures. You learn all the leading edge job planning and job task control practices to help you keep maintenance work on-schedule and on-budget.

It is vitally important to practice the maintenance planning and scheduling concepts covered in each module. You will need support from your supervisory people and department management to spend time doing and refining what you learn in the course.


More Information on the Training Course and How You Use it


The course requires students to do ten (10) modules plus provide final evidence of applying the training. The first six (6) modules address maintenance planning and the final four (4) cover maintenance scheduling. All ten modules must be completed to pass the training course. Once all ten modules with their assignments are complete and your workplace evidence is passed you get a maintenance planning and scheduling training certificate sent to you.

Each module requires the student to view and listen to a PowerPoint presentation on the module topic. Each presentation slide has notes that also contain added description of the slide content. Students read the notes as well as view and listen to the slide. The content of a module explains a range of vital aspects for doing maintenance planning and scheduling well. The slides with their images, audio and text in the notes provide explanations, discussion and examples to teach students.

A module presentation takes an hour to two hours to view, depending on its length. When necessary you do additional research using the Internet to learn more on any content you need to better understand. The research may involve finding relevant articles and websites that address the topic of interest and reading-up on the additional information that you want to know.

Each module also requires you to do its assignments. You send completed assignment to your Tutor to review and they provide feedback to help you do the assignment successfully. Your Tutor is also there to provide advice and guidance when you request it.

We monitor each student as they progress through the course and liaise with them when necessary. We aim to help them complete the training so they can advance their career.
