“I will appreciate if you can furnish me with answers and information regarding questions I have about your online distance learning training courses.”


1. The cost and duration of the training?

We aim to give world class content and training to our students that is of outstanding value and worth to their careers at a reasonable price.

The costs for all online distance learning courses and their modules are based on the time it takes your tutor to review assignments and give feedback, answer questions, and provide one-on-one assistance when needed. Courses with more modules and having more assignments naturally cost more.

For example, the cost for the modules in the courses teaching Preventive Maintenance, with 3 modules, and Predictive Maintenance, with 2 modules, is $199.99 per module. That pricing makes the Preventive Maintenance course cost just under $600, and the Predictive Maintenance course just below $400. For people that want extensive maintenance management strategy training we suggest they do both course at a total of under $1,000 per student to get their maintenance management training certificate.

The cost for the Maintenance Planning and Scheduling training course is $99.99 per module. The course has 20 assignments across 10 modules, plus a final submission to review. The total price is around $1,000 per student to get a maintenance planning training certificate. If you want to do only maintenance planning training or maintenance scheduling training separate from the other part of the course we will allow you to do so. Your training certificate will indicate the course you complete.

One reason that people choose to do training courses by distance learning is because it gives them flexibility. They can schedule their study and work on course assignments in a way and at times that fits their life and work situations.

Another reason distance learning is chosen is when people want to get certificated quickly. You can go as fast as you wish through our distance learning courses. You will need to pass all module assignments, and your Tutor will help you to do that. We recommend that you set a goal to complete one assignment per week. You can even do one assignment per day if you need to get a certificate that fast.

3. Practical applicability of the courses since they are purely by distance learning?

All the maintenance training courses educational materials are world class content. Each module contains assignments to be completed and submitted to your Tutor. It is by application of the teaching that you gain the learning and understanding provided in the course. Doing each assignment to a high standard is vital to get the necessary knowledge and skill transfer into you.

The Tutor’s role is to ensure that you learn what is vital and important to know. You will put the training course module content to use during the Module assignments. The very best approach to learn a module’s content is to do your assignments using your workplace for the examples that you apply the module’s learning too.

When students do not have direct access to apply the course learning on their workplace, they and their tutor discuss alternative ways to complete assignments while ensuring the correct know-how and techniques are passed to the student.


4. What type of professional assistance is rendered during the training?

You work with with a human Tutor for the duration of your course. The Tutor is there for you to get guidance, have discussions and answer your questions. They review all your assignments and help you to pass them successfully. A module’s cost covers a fair allowance of the Tutor’s time per module.

When you arrive at an assignment you do it and submit it to your Tutor. They will provide you with coaching, feedback, and advice. When necessary, you continue to refine the assignment submission until your Tutor accepts it.

You start immediately learning each module after downloading it by going through each slide and becoming familiar with its message and reading any notes about the PowerPoint slide. New students are advised in a welcome email of a range of useful Internet and information resources.

You can also do your own research to gain deeper awareness of a topic. The course PowerPoint slides have great and valuable content. The assignments you do give you practical experience. They provide direction and focus on what is important for you to master. For students that want to know more about a topic, they are encouraged to research the Internet and get specialist text books on the topic.


5. Can I apply confidently for higher positions at the end of this training?

The course content and coverage is world class, and you will be exposed to it and trained in it. When you apply for a higher role or position you will be able to competently and comfortably apply the learning. You will be trained on the topics covered in the module content and you will be able to use the methods and practices you learn to solve the demanding real-life scenarios.

That is why we recommend that all your assignments be based on your actual workplace situations when possible. In that way you will gain experience and knowledge of applying the new learning to the equipment and maintenance processes in your organization. The people about you will see you developing and improving. You will gradually build a portfolio of successful applications of the course knowledge to show people when you seek higher positions.


6. Method of payment?

You buy each module from the online store, after which you get a link to download the module. Purchasing the first Module completes the course registration process. Payment is by credit card or via PayPal.
