New fleet maintenance managers and shop superintendents – and anyone looking for a refresher in maintenance operations – could benefit from two upcoming university-sponsored programs.

The University of Wisconsin at Madison’s Department of Engineering Professional Development offers the seminar, “Fleet Maintenance Management,” December 16-17 in Madison.

The course is designed to give attendees the opportunity to learn from professional fleet managers and industry consultants. Topics include how to: use cost data to make better decisions; build a vehicle replacement program that works; manage a parts inventory to reduce costs; implement maintenance management systems; and use the latest technologies.

The University of Washington in Seattle will host the annual Vehicle Maintenance Management Conference March 24-27. Some 500 fleet professionals will meet to share technical and supervisory techniques and experiences, with the emphasis on practical implementation.

In addition, about 30 percent of the sessions are basic presentations geared for people who want basic theory reviewed, so they can understand and apply information and technology to their fleets’ particular needs.
