Academy courses aligned to PAS 55 and outcomes based training
To ensure continued service excellence, Corné Kleyn, Manager of the Pragma Africa Academy, embarked on a process of upgrading all the course material.
With the global focus on aligning physical asset management practices with PAS-55 (which is recognised as the world standard on physical asset management), Pragma set about aligning all its Business Processes to the PAS-55. It was only a matter of time before the Academy course material followed suit.
The Maintenance Planning and Scheduling course has been brought on par with both the PAS-55 and the revised 17 Key Performance Areas as encompassed in the Asset Management Improvement Planning business process.
Ongoing development over the next 12 to 18 months will see a major revamp of all the courses.
Courses still to be updated include:
- Fundamentals of Asset Management – middle 2010.
- Failure Root Cause Analysis – end 2010.
- Maintenance Plan Development (OMM) – 2011.
In line with the latest trends in training and the shift toward outcomes-based education, we have investigated and consulted various sources to find out how to amend our delivery methods.
A number of people have been involved with this process, but a special mention must go to
Stefan Terreblanche, Arnold Botha, Wyhan Jooste, Deirdre Committie, Ben Booyens and Harold Robinson.
The revamp of all the courses is once again testimony to Pragma’s continuous improvement philosophy that will, as always, benefit Pragma clients.
