ARTICLE: Brad Owen, Cameco Corporation - Cameco's Asset Plan 



When working in a maintenance role, you very rarely do the same tasks over and over again. It’s more likely that you are managing a variety of projects and assets. The MMP program provided me with knowledge on a variety of new topics and reinforced my understanding of others. The program allowed me to see the big picture, and how my role and the variety of tasks I complete, fit into the organization’s overall strategy. I am performing my role with greater confidence and am inspired to build business cases for improvements and efficiencies within my organization.
- Alex Murray, MMP Maintenance Specialist at Cenovus Energy Inc., Cold Lake, Alberta

Organizations that I have worked for see the value in the knowledge that I’ve acquired in the MMP program, and encouraged me to create and implement new maintenance strategies and programs. I’ve successfully implemented preventative maintenance systems, inventory control and spare parts programs, among other initiatives, that have reduced downtime and helped to drive production capacity.

Steven Hayes, PE., MMP, Maintenance Manager at Five Corners Meats Co., a Donald's Fine Foods Company in Chilliwack, BC 

The support of leadership within my organization had a tremendous impact on how successful I was in the MMP program. Their investment and encouragement in my education has delivered improvements to both my team and the overall organization. I continue to share the knowledge that I gained from the program, instructors, and other participants from around the world in my role as a manager.

- Hassan Sadiq, MMP, Supervisor Materials Management at Canadian Natural Resources Ltd. in Edmonton, AB

My experience with the MMP program has provided me a wealth of knowledge and widened my perspective. Not only am able to make better decisions for my organization in my current role, but I can also champion projects such as implementing a CMMS system to support our facility maintenance strategies. With this new insight, the opportunities for me at Ghana National Gas are endless, including roles in Facility and Asset Management Strategy & Planning, Asset Information Management as well as Reliability Centered Maintenance.
