The Online Certificate Program in Maintenance Management offered by the University of Kansas consists of three modules aimed at helping end-users evaluate their operations; plan, coordinate and schedule maintenance; and properly use preventive and predictive maintenance in their operations. The program is designed for all types of maintenance environments including refineries, chemical plants, factories, mines, large buildings, operations with many smaller buildings and all types of mobile fleets.
