Spare Parts Management Specialist in Oil & Gas
SparePartsKnowHow.com is an approved training partner
with the Reliability and Maintainability Center at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
This course formed the basis of the Spare Parts Inventory Management Certificate program at the University of Kansas.
The Advanced Spare Parts Management Course is focused on MRO and spare parts inventory – unlike most inventory management courses. Once you understand why this matters you are halfway to solving your problems.
The course is self-paced, 100% online and available on-demand 24/7.
- This means that you can study at a time and place that suits you.
- At SparePartsKnowHow we have had learners’ study during their daily commute on the train.
- Some get the luxury of studying during work hours.
- Some do it when the kids have gone to bed, and the house is quiet.
- The options are as flexible as they are varied.
- Because our online training has no fixed time or place, you don’t need to wait until an event starts, or take the risk that you can’t attend at that time.
- You just get started. It is as simple as that.
There are 8 learning modules, meaning that the Advanced Spare Parts Management Course covers all the issues faced during the spare parts inventory management lifecycle.
- Each module consists of a combination of reading and online video.
- The course structure enables you to work through the content in ‘bite-sized’ chunks.
- The course is delivered via the Spare Parts Training Academy using a state of the art Learning Management System that enables students to easily track their progress through the course.
The modules are:
- Introduction to Spare Parts Inventory Management
- Critical Parts and Stock Level Decision Making
- Inventory Optimization
- Best Practices
- Metrics, Reporting and Policies
- The Storeroom: Physical Management
- The Storeroom: Procedural Management
- Program Implementation
Add to your qualifications with the Advanced Spare Parts Management certificate.
- Each module includes a multi-choice online quiz to test the students’ know-how and learning.
- The pass mark of each quiz is set at 80% correct – you need to earn this qualification!
Each student has 12 months to complete the training.
- We recognize that learning is not a linear process. Once something is understood at one level the learner may then go on to gain a deeper understanding.
- We estimate that the course requires 32 hours of study and some people have completed the course in two weeks.
- However, most people take 3-6 months – roughly one module per two weeks.
- By providing extended access, people can study at a pace that suits their life and revisit the content as they implement changes.
A key feature of SparePartsKnowHow is our Online Training Support.
- This is clearly different to most training where time limitations mean you have little access to the trainer and their support.
- Everyone who joins SparePartsKnowHow.com gets access to ask any questions they have relating to our content and the application of that content.
- Tell us what problem you are trying to solve, and we will direct you to the right content.
Our Training is Budget Friendly
- Live, in-person training events are by far the most expensive way to learn. A short course or a conference can easily cost US$3,000 per person and you only get a day or two of access.
- Using that as a measure it is easy to see that 12 months access to our Advanced Spare Parts Management course might just be the best value training today!
