Attention: Maintenance & Reliability Professionals
Are you Wasting Your Scarce Resources on Maintenance That adds no value?
Most preventive maintenance programs around the world are pretty poor.
You see most of the PM programs were never developed properly, to begin with.
As John Moubray, the father of RCM II, pointed out in his book “Reliability Centered Maintenance”, typically between 40% - 60% of the PM tasks in a PM program add little value.
Some of the most common problems are:
(1) Tasks are duplicated.
(2) Tasks are done too frequently or not frequent enough.
(3) Tasks are not effective at addressing the failure mode.
(4) Too many fixed time, intrusive overhaul tasks that would be more effective, less costly and less disruptive to production if they were condition-based.
(5) Lack of using existing failure data and experience to set good task frequencies.
The result is that we waste money and time on doing things that do not add value.
But far worse is the many preventable high-impact failures that occur.
This ultimately keeps so many plants in that dreadful reactive maintenance cycle.
In short, poor PM programs waste time and money, do not effectively address failures and drive our organisations into a reactive, fire-fighting culture.
Less Maintenance That Gives You Better Results
But it doesn’t have to be like that.
Experience and research show that by creating an effective preventive maintenance program you can increase reliability whilst at the same time you reduce workload and costs.
And no, you do not need to buy expensive software or hire consultants to do all this work for you.
You can do it yourself, with your own resources.
And you can do it with the tools you have.
What you do need is a good grounding in the Principles of a Modern Preventive Maintenance Program and a solid, easy to follow process to analyse and improve your Preventive Maintenance Program.
But this is clearly missing in the market at the moment...
Introducing a New Online Course:
Implementing & Improving Preventive Maintenance Programs
Become a Founding Student: Early access, influence course content Plus 12 months of private coaching!
Creating a high-quality online, on-demand course takes a lot of effort and time. In fact, my first course took me well over a year to complete. Frankly speaking, I'm too excited for this to take a year. I want to get this new course to you ASAP.
So... I'm taking a new approach.
Instead of doing everything myself, I am looking to hire help for those time-consuming tasks that others can do faster. And probably better. Things like graphic design, editing, transcribing, video processing etc.
This way I should be able to get the course out in 3 to 4 months!
But... getting all this extra help does not come cheap.
To help fund the development of the course I've decided to create a unique opportunity that I will only open up to those on my email list.
People like you.
I will be inviting 20 'Founding Students' to join me in the journey of creating this course.
These 20 Founding Students get:
This premium online, on-demand course will go on sale to the wider public early next year for USD 1995. And it will be worth every penny.
With a 50% discount, Founding Students only pay USD 995 for lifetime access to all the course content and the 12 private coaching sessions.
Just the 12 private coaching sessions only are worth that price!
This is a limited time opportunity as registration to become a Founding Student closes on the 31st July 2020.
Registration Closes In:
There are only 20 spots for Founding Students and to ensure that we have a strong, diverse group of Founding Students it will be by invitation only.
Here's what you need to do:
Step 1: click on one of the "Register INterest" buttons on this page
Step 2: After you click that button you will be taken to an online form to capture your details and most importantly your motivations for becoming a Founding Student. Fill in that form as best you can and submit the form.
You have until the 31st July to register your interest.
Step 3: Early August I will review all the submissions personally and select 20 people to join the Founding Student program.
If you are selected to join the Founding Student program you will receive a personal invitation and will have 5 days to make payment.
The clock is literally ticking so don't wait any longer and express your interest right now:
This is a Very Different Approach How Will It Work?

Still have some Questions?
Let's Answer Them
Great question 🙂
First of all, you don't have to join the Founding Student program and you can simply wait till the course is complete and launched to the wider public.
But as a Founding Student you get early access, the unique opportunity to influence the course content and you get 12 months of private coaching with myself and you get a HUGE 50% discount on the launch price of the course. The coaching calls alone are worth the discounted course price you'll pay as a Founding Student.
Yes, in addition to the assignments and quizzes that are included in the various modules there is a final, online multiple-choice exam that you need to complete and pass to receive your Certificate of Completion.
You certainly do. When you have successfully completed all Course Modules, all homework assignments, all quizzes and you have passed the final (online) exam you will automatically receive a Certificate of Completion.
The Certificate of Completion will look very similar to the sample certificate from the online course 'Implementing Maintenance Planning & Scheduling' shown below:
For Founding Students, I offer a 30-day no questions asked, full refund policy.
The 30 days commence on the day the course goes 'live', which means the majority of the course content has been uploaded in the online Learning Management System and made available to students.
No! Not at all, the course will be delivered through a web-based Learning Management System, but all you need is a modern web browser like Chrome, Internet Explorer or Safari.
You do need a reasonably reliable internet connection, but as the course material is all pre-recorded you can choose when and where you view or listen to the course content. And on what device as you can access the course on a desktop, tablet or smartphone.
Not yet, at the moment the focus is to get the course developed in English first.
Translations may become available in 2021.
P.S. Getting your Preventive Maintenance Program in order is really one of the most important steps you can make on the Road to Reliability™. With an efficient and effective Preventive Maintenance Program, you can ensure you're not wasting your scarce resources. In fact, you will end up doing less maintenance and getting better reliability
