Event Name:Fundamentals of Maintenance Practices 1
Event Type(s):Training/Seminars

Fundamentals of Maintenance Practices 1: Wastewater treatment facilities are among a community’s greatest assets, both in terms of value to the quality of life of its citizenry and capital investment. It is imperative that those in charge of said facilities take the utmost care of these crucial resources.

Having a good plan for maintaining the equipment of each component is only the beginning. Personnel assigned to perform the tasks associated with prolonging the life of the system assets must receive proper training. While some of maintenance can be quite specific to certain devices, there are many general principles,  practices and skills that are helpful in almost every maintenance application.

Persons completing this class will have a better base of knowledge and/or skills towards contributing to the overall success of any maintenance program.
