Summary

We have designed this course to introduce the benefits and opportunities of Condition Based Maintenance within the railway environment and covers a range of techniques.

Condition monitoring is a major component of predictive maintenance and enables optimisation of resources.

It has the proven potential to save thousands of pounds in secondary damage, lost availability and unnecessary maintenance in all areas of railway operation.

This course is based on ISO 17359:2011 (Condition monitoring and diagnostics of machines).
