Classroom reliability training followed by practical experience could end money being wasted on maintenance courses and seminars that workers quickly forget.
Companies can spend thousands of dollars on maintenance training, but often, very little of the knowledge gained on maintenance and reliability training courses is ever used in the plant. In fact it is common for trainees to forget some of the lessons learned, just weeks after the event. One way to help resolve this phenomenon could be to give classroom maintenance training in conjunction with practical experience.
