Maintenance Management Part-time Studies Course

School of Energy

BCIT is planning for a substantial return to on-campus activity for the Winter 2022 term as informed by BC Provincial Health Officer guidelines. Refer to each course listing for details.

Course Details

​This course is equivalent to PEMAC Maintenance Management Certification Module 7: Computerized Maintenance Management Systems (CMMS). This module focuses on maintenance efforts to ensure that physical assets safely, capably, reliably and repeatedly perform to their designed specifications. The focus is on techniques to develop maintenance tactics that will address how the assets are used, how they are likely to fail, the consequence of failure, and identifying maintenance tactics that are both feasible and worth doing. After developing tactics, the module will focus on how tactics need to be implemented and their effectiveness tracked. Topics include: integrating the use of CMMS with other departments; project planning and organization; implementing team development; assigning team roles and responsibilities; and integrating the CMMS activities (financial, work/job planning, data collection and preventive & predictive maintenance).
