Local business and facility owners and operators, contractors, municipal representatives, manufacturers, and other professionals are invited this spring to attend a free three-course series on effective facility/equipment maintenance and its benefits.
Parkland College Business Training
will offer a MET DEMAND™ "Energy Efficiency in Manufacturing" course from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on each of the following days: March 12, March 27 and April 24. Classes will be held at the Business Training offices at 1315 N. Mattis Ave., Champaign, room J125.
The series reveals how good maintenance increases profit through higher productivity, lower energy usage and less rework. The March 12 session discusses "Effective Maintenance and Reliability Best Practices." The second session, "Introduction to Maintenance Planning and Scheduling," will examine seven prerequisite business processes for achieving effective maintenance work control. Finally, "Introduction to Preventive and Predictive Maintenance" on April 24 will demonstrate how to create facility and equipment care plans that eliminate failures and unplanned downtime by improving methods, design, operation and control.
Registration is required for the free series, hosted by the Illinois Green Economy Network with support from the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (DCEO). Space is limited. For more information or to register, please visit igencc.org/temt
