After attending this 3-day course, you will save time and money on your next shutdown. Our promise for this program is that you will have a new and deeper understanding of how to effectively manage large maintenance jobs such as power plant outages and refinery refits. This course is 85% concerned with the time before the shutdown begins. The remaining 15% is the execution tactics to keep the project on course.
This course includes specific checklists, procedures, strategies, and important outside resources that will improve your current shutdown planning and execution. The course also includes examples to demonstrate the major points.
NOTE: While some industries use the phrases outage, shutdown, and turnaround interchangeably, other industries ascribe very specific and different meanings to the terms. From the perspective of planning, however, in this course we have decided to use the terms interchangeably.
