We have developed this workshop to give you a deeper understanding of fleet maintenance regimes and processes.

Through attending this one-day programme, you will improve your knowledge of maintenance regimes and contractual arrangements, and the key drivers of fleet maintenance decision-making including costs, reliability and safety.

Who should attend?

This course is suitable for recent graduates moving into traction and rolling stock; non-traction and rolling stock engineers moving into new roles within traction and rolling stock; production and engineering managers new to the industry; infrastructure and asset managers; and accident investigators.

How will I benefit?

After attending this course you will be able to: 

  • Describe the different types of maintenance regimes 
  • Explain the different types of contractual arrangements relating to the maintenance of fleets 
  • Identify the reasons and process for changing maintenance regimes 
  • Identify the key components of a successful maintenance organisation 
Contributes 7 CPD hours

I would strongly recommend this course to my colleagues as it provides a useful insight into the topic.
