Maintenance Excellence

Maintenance Excellence Programme


How do you view training for your maintenance staff? Is it a waste of time or a fundamental part of maintenance improvement? The reality is that companies investing in training outperform and have much better staff retention rates than companies that don't.

Something that should be of concern to us all is the fact is that for many maintenance tradesmen the only formal training they receive is in the first four years of their career while they are signed in to their apprenticeship. If organisations want to reach international maintenance best practice then a structured approach is needed to maintenance training.

Skills4Work is an experienced and quality training provider in Maintenance Excellence. Skills4Work is recognized by the Society for Maintenance & Reliability Professionals (SMRP) as an approved provider of continuing education and training aligned with key subject areas related to reliability and physical asset management. We are the only approved provider in New Zealand that is recognised for our best-in-class continuing education training programmes by SMRP.

There are three Maintenance Excellence programmes available. Once the outcomes are successfully achieved for each programme you will be awarded the relevant level 5 unit standard. These unit standards can be used to satisfy the maintenance/electrical engineering strands of national qualifications.
