Predictive Maintenance and Condition Monitoring - Industrial Training
"Just the right information I needed."
"We are going back tomorrow and changing the way we do maintenance."
Purpose of Seminar:
With ever increasing demands from top management to do more work and decrease costs, investing in predictive maintenance and condition monitoring makes more sense today than ever. While many organizations still rely heavily on time based maintenance, its a proven fact that condition monitoring maintenance requires less personnel and saves money and downtime.
This course provides the fundamentals of PdM and condition monitoring applicable to plants, facilities and manufacturing lines. Predictive Maintenance & Condition Monitoring will provide students with a framework to make the right decisions on what equipment needs condition monitoring, what technologies to use to meet their needs and how to measure the effectiveness of their decisions. In addition to exposing students to the principles and options for a program, they will learn about real world applications that have benefited other successful maintenance programs.
By the end of this seminar, students will be able to go back to their facility and immediately apply what they learned to help make their maintenance process more efficient and less expensive. Training like this never costs it pays!
Upon completion of this course students will receive a personalized TPC Trainco Certificate of Completion and 1.4 CEUs (Continuing Education Credits) approved by the Maintenance Training Association of the Americas indicating that he or she has learned how to:
- Identify Why Time Based Maintenance
- Describe the Benefits of a PdM & Condition Monitoring Program

Course Outline / Agenda:
PdM or condition based maintenance attempts to evaluate the condition of equipment by performing periodic inspections while the equipment is still in service. The ultimate goal of PdM is to perform maintenance just in time, before the equipment fails in service. This two-day course is for maintenance personnel, operators and managers who desire to understand how condition monitoring can increase the efficiency of their maintenance program while reducing costs. This course will teach you what equipment to monitor, what technologies to monitor it with and how to measure your success. Students will gain an understanding of real world applications to help them implement a PdM
program at their facility.

About our Instructors:
"Real World Training...for Real World Needs" is not just our slogan, but also our mission statement. At TPC Trainco, we approach our students as if they were our own employees. We instruct them and guide them in practical knowledge that allows them to immediately go back to their workplace and apply what they have learned. Our instructors are seasoned veterans with years of real world experience, and the students who attend our seminars often get more from a single week of training than an entire year of reading textbooks or watching videos. How do we know? They tell us.
Anyone can teach theory, but there simply is no substitute for experience. What sets TPC Trainco apart is our ability to communicate that experience into the brains of our students. As one attendee told us at the end of his two-day training course, "I think I can go back to work now and teach the veterans a thing or two."
All TPC Trainco instructors are required to have a formal education
and real world work experience. They need to be leaders in their field. We
don't hire field people without teaching experience, and we don't hire teachers without field experience. They must have both. And since attendees critique the instructor at the end of each class, a positive and enjoyable learning experience is virtually guaranteed.
Additional information about this course:
UNAFFILIATED and NON-COMMERCIAL
Unlike some training experiences, you
won't get a sales presentation at an TPC Trainco seminar - all you get is an honest, commercially unbiased education. We do not engage in the practice of selling or promoting any other
company's products or services, so you know that by attending one of our seminars, your time and money is well spent.
HIGH QUALITY PRESENTATIONS
From the start, we demanded that all our presentations would be lively, attractive, crisp and clear. Our instructors use state-of-the-art computers, projection equipment, and software to bring you a high quality visual experience.
