Gannt chart.jpg


Our Plant Turnaround Management Course constitutes a three-day Practical Training to bring all theoretical knowledge and experience into Industrial practical application.

The most demanding call on maintenance Managers and personnel comes when a plant is shut down for a period of time for maintenance. Usually, a large volume of work must be completed in a relatively short period of time. The course will introduce participants to the concepts associated with the successful planning and execution of a Turnaround/major Shutdown.

The course is available at a reasonable price with custom-designed features according to your unique needs and delivered by extremely experienced Trainers.

Why Join Our Course

The effective operation of a plant during its production cycle is dependent in part on the planning and execution of turnarounds. One characteristic of the turnaround is intensive work on maintenance and modernization carried out by several hundred contractors employed in the same area and according to a tight time schedule.

For this reason, it is imperative that personnel involved in turnaround planning and execution have the expertise to carry out their duties successfully. The primary objective of a turnaround is to reduce the overhaul revenue expenditure through improved efficiency and performance with improved reliability and mechanical availability following unit overhauls.

We have designed a hands-on, highly interactive Plant Turnaround Management short training course that includes various practical sessions and exercises to educate and train you to counter all aspects of turnaround planning and execution.
