PEMAC Proudly Participates in the 30th Annual SMRP Conference

This week, in Raleigh, North Carolina, Len Middleton and Nicolle Guillen represented PEMAC at SMRP's 30th Annual Conference. More than 1100 participants from around the world attended four days of education, networking and innovation. 

MMP Instructor, Len Middleton, led a 2-day workshop on Module One of PEMAC's Maintenance Management Professional Program. Participants learned about a strategic approach to maintenance management and how it is an integral part of a successful organization. The course was delivered in partnership with Northern Lakes College. 

PEMAC was also an exhibitor at this week's conference, and had the opportunity to connect with maintenance, reliability and asset management professionals throughout the event. 

With over 92 workshops and presentations to choose from over 6 tracks, there was something for conference attendees. PEMAC certified practitioner, Spencer de Klerk from the City of Edmonton, presented on Top-down Criticality. In his highly rated presentation, Spencer provided an overview on how to implement a maintenance and reliability framework closely aligned with Norsok Z-008 and ISO14224 standards. He also shared an overview of a Maintenance Effectiveness Audit Process that closely aligns with ISO 19011 to monitor the framework of the program. Spencer also hosted a half day workshop on day four, delving further into the topic. 

During the conference, Paul Casto announced that PEMAC and SMRP have entered into a formal partnership and will be working closely together going forward on a number of initiatives. PEMAC is pleased to partner with SMRP and explore avenues to expand their collaboration.
