PEMA 4000 - Capstone Course

Maintenance Management Part-time Studies Course

School of Energy

Course Details

This course is the equivalent to PEMAC Maintenance Management Certification Module 8: Capstone Course. Through the application of the key learning elements from the previous seven MMP modules students apply the principles, latest concepts and techniques to a final project. Working in small groups or teams, students will select a project that will audit, assess and improve their current maintenance departments or develop a new maintenance strategy in their company or resolve a significant maintenance issue within their departments. There is also the option of developing a “Greenfield” maintenance strategy and program upon approval from the instructor. All previous modules are prerequisites for this course. The assessment of the Capstone projects is intended to qualify students for their MMP certification and designation.
