Reliability Week

Bring your management team and hourly employees from operations, maintenance, and engineering for an action packed reliability week.  The training week will equip you with the tools, knowledge and shared understanding to immediately impact the bottom line in your operation.

The reliability week combines a carefully selected collection of training workshops with presentations from practitioners in the industry.

The reliability training workshops presented by IDCON cover the major business processes needed to achieve equipment reliability in any process or manufacturing plant. You will achieve the best payback from the training if you bring both operations and maintenance to the training week.
