This specialized COMMITTEE is working on this theme and preparing a study on “Worldwide Overview of Current Practice of Maintenance Education and Training (ME&T)” in order to find out what are theshortcomings within ME&T in order to reach the BEST formula of (MT&E) globally and make it as a guideline at international level to help local and regional organizations/ associations to plan and strategically develop their Maintenance Training and education plans. This is also to make best value in Budgeting, Maintenance planning & scheduling and maintenance optimization.
The study is being conducted by a co-operative team of International Experts to assess the CURRENT approaches to the Education, Training and Apprenticeships of those involved in the maintenance activities.
