Life Cycle Institute: Group Partners with Clemson University to Offer Maintenance Management Certification


Charleston, S.C. — Feb. 9, 2016 — The Life Cycle Institute, the human performance practice at Life Cycle Engineering, announced its partnership with Clemson University to offer a Maintenance Management Certification (MMC) beginning spring 2016.

The MMC builds and certifies individual competency in maintenance management. Successful candidates will be able to apply maintenance management best practices to build and sustain a world-class maintenance program.

This certification program will enable participants to:

• Build and sustain a maintenance program

• Establish appropriate maintenance KPIs and visual management dashboard

• Select the optimum equipment maintenance strategy

• Implement work management strategies that improve asset availability and utilization

• Increase maintenance personnel productivity

• Build a problem-solving culture

• Manage an effective maintenance budget

“Over the past decade, the role of the maintenance manager has become much more sophisticated in how they need to manage people, budgets, work, and materials, so we designed the Maintenance Management Certification to address each of these complexities," said Bill Wilder, director of the Life Cycle Institute. "This certification will equip those in the maintenance field to manage maintenance budgets, establish key maintenance KPIs, and create a culture of continuous improvement.”

This program was developed in part by Joel Levitt, director of international projects, Life Cycle Engineering. His experience as an author, speaker, and subject-matter expert on the topic of maintenance management fueled the content for the program, making it a complete competency-building solution.

“This program is designed to provide maintenance managers with the skill set needed to implement best practices, lead and supervise others, and handle the business side of maintenance," Levitt said. "The flexibility of the program allows candidates to tailor the curriculum according to their individual goals."

Clemson University, in Clemson, S.C., is the first top 100 engineering school to offer the Maintenance Management Certification. In 2013 Clemson was also the first engineering school to partner with Life Cycle Institute on its Reliability Engineering Certification program.

The Maintenance Management Certification requires the candidate to complete a four-course program and successfully pass the MMC exam. There are two required courses: Maintenance Planning & Scheduling and Management Skills for Maintenance Supervisors. Candidates must also choose two electives from these options: Materials Management, Predictive Maintenance Strategy, Risk-Based Asset Management, and Root Cause Analysis.
