World Class Maintenance and Excellence in Maintenance are key words and are turning around the world since years. The question in this context is, what are the related terms of reference describing purpose, structure, shared goals, resources, timelines, etc. ?

Education and training is a key challenge for many companies and surrounding stakeholders. Excellent Maintenance Managers and well performing Maintenance Personnel on all levels can accrue significant benefits. Today we need Maintenance Personnel with outstanding competencies including good knowledge, professional skills and human factors.

In the frame of CEN TC 319, Leonardo da Vinci and EFNMS, new structures were and are still in development for offering modern training and qualification tools in maintenance.

Back ground

In several countries, unemployment hits records. Youth unemployment is a huge problem – new visions and projects are necessary for creating opportunities. Education and Training will be the right answer – but, there are a lot of education and training programs without any real market behind. Attractive programs must be implemented – in line with real market needs and together with the National Educational Authorities.

One of the objectives of the VocTrainMaint Partnership Workshops is to promote and support European-wide education, training and qualification in the field of Maintenance.

The increasing international integration in the development of Maintenance innovating new ways plays a significant role. Several European networks as CEN TC 319 “Maintenance”, EUROMAINT, VOCTRAINMAINT, PILE UP or EURIAC were established and are active in the European innovation area. Others, we find in North and South America, the Arab Countries, China and Australia. All these networks are focusing to-day on education and training in Maintenance.

Some statements from the actual Maintenance Market:
• We have to promote competence in Automation on all levels (EURIAC). • Promotion of higher education and training for the blue-color maintenance personnel is necessary (VOCTRAINMAINT). • There is not enough qualified Maintenance Personnel in the Chemical Process Industry (PILE UP). • Due to the growing extend and the increasing complexity of maintenance, very diverse occupational profiles have evolved for Maintenance Personnel. Competence, knowledge, skills and target qualification must be in our focus (CEN TC 319 “Maintenance”).

For us, it is important to realize that we have the key in hand for building new labor markets and for developing win-win strategies for Youngsters and the Manufacturing Industry. For this, possible commitments from Industry, Professional Schools, Universities, National / International Maintenance Societies and Governmental Organisations were discussed.

Left: Center of Dublin - Right: European Union House.

On the 21st January 2014 the Irish Minister for Education & Skills, Ruairí Quinn published a comprehensive review of the system of apprenticeships in Ireland. The review recommended the expansion of apprenticeship to new business and industrial sectors. It identified the role of employers as key to this expansion. It also recommended the establishment of an Apprenticeship Council.

Forum Purpose
Over the past number of years the Institute of Industrial Engineers (IIE) has been working with a European consortium of maintenance societies and the Irish maintenance society MEETA. The primary purpose of these collaborations is to develop educational programmes with reference to the European Qualification Framework (EQF) for multi-skilled maintenance technicians in close collaboration with industrial partners.
The purpose of this forum was to present an overview of the work being done in Europe through the presentation of a selection of EU funded projects.

Forum Attendees
Attendance was by invitation only and brought together the major stakeholders in the Irish workplace.
