Course Information and Timetable
Our instructor-led spare parts management training provides you with the best training experience.
These instructor-led courses are delivered 100% online, utilizing a combination of individual study of articles and video, and live interaction with the course instructor. This approach provides the best of both worlds, as the student can study at a time that suits them, but they also get the structure of scheduled class/tutorial times.
Direct instructor contact enables participants to clarify issues and ask questions,
adding a level of engagement not available through other online training formats.
Our approach provides:
- Flexibility: study the content when it suits you
- Structure: scheduled class/tutorial times adds a layer of discipline to the training
- Engagement: direct instructor contact enables you to clarify issues and ask questions
- Access: content is available beyond the immediate class program
- Cost savings: no travel and accommodation expenses
- Convenience: no extended time from work
- Networking: interact with, and hear from, your peers during online sessions
- ‘Soak Time’: teaching this content over weeks rather than hours gives time for participants to absorb the content.
On all measures this approach is superior to traditional class room training.
Feedback from some of last year’s instructor-led program participants
I was really impressed with the material and content of the class. I learned a great deal and am working on applying that knowledge.
Thanx for a great class. I really enjoyed your knowledge of MRO and the stories from your experience

I take this opportunity to thank you for this powerfully crafted course. The material and presentation were efficiently structured. The learning experience was profound. It was simplicity, on the far side of complexity.

Spare Parts Inventory Reduction (IL04)
This instructor-led Spare Parts Inventory Reduction course teaches you everything you need to know to achieve an effective and operationally safe approach to spare parts inventory reduction.
The course takes you through the basics of inventory optimization and then does a deep dive into the Inventory Cash Release® (ICR®) Process.
The ICR® Process effects inventory reduction by identifying what works for specifics part rather than applying a ‘one size fits all’ technique such as a software program. This radically improves the options for identifying viable and lasting solutions.
Part 1: Training
Training is conducted over eight online sessions.
Optional Part 2: Implementation
This course includes an optional follow-on program where we coach and guide you through the application of the techniques and achievement of the inventory reduction goals. Companies that have taken this path typically produce inventory reductions 2-3 times greater than those that don’t.
Start date: Tuesday, 11th February, 2020
Course ID: IL04
Class times: 5PM EST (UTC-5)
