Actually, there are no global Guidelines for Maintenance Education and Training available.
Therefore the International Association for Maintenance (IMA) is willing to fill this gap.

In September or October 2019, the 3rd IMA World Maintenance Forum will be organized in Lugano (Switzerland) for promoting Global Education and Training in the field of Maintenance.
