This page displays our training courses for companies with user-owned spare parts. These companies own and keep a supply of spare parts in their own storerooms/warehouses and manage those spare parts to support the maintenance and operations of their own assets and equipment. This is often referred to as indirect inventory.
Based on a central library of 34 individual lessons, which form 8 unique training modules and a range of courses, our content covers all aspects of spare parts management, throughout the entire spare parts management life-cycle.
This ‘module’ approach provides you with the flexibility to study just one module, or to study a pre-configured ‘task focussed course’, or do a complete certificate program.
