Total Resource Management Trainers Speak Your Language

May 23, 2006 | Press

Total Resource Management (TRM) enterprise asset management (EAM) system technology training is relevant, hands-on, experiential and practical. Just ask the U.S. Navy.

In the last two years, some 4,000 Single Platform Maximo® (SPM) users at the Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) have received training from TRM experts. Student evaluations across the board note the effectiveness of TRM’s practical, hands-on approach to teaching and the value of experimenting with the application on classroom computers.

All Aboard

The Navy’s training deployment for its customized web-based Maximo® is representative of the global capability TRM offers. The Navy’s SPM deployment stretches across nine Public Works Centers (PWCs) and more than 50 Public Works Departments, from the mid-Eastern region of Virginia and Washington D.C., across the continental U.S., to Hawaii, the Far East and Europe.

The deployment involves 10,000 users in 14 time zones. U.S. training is complete. Japan and neighboring areas will go live in June. Europe is expected to be completed next year.

Adding Value

“We add value because we have the ability to take an organization’s business processes and integrate them into Maximo®,” explains Chief Operations Officer Don Omura. “We train and then back up our training. While we do this for customers of all sizes, the Navy example really illustrates the breadth of our capabilities.”

Classes are small, never more than 15 students, and often smaller. A presenting instructor ensures that students receive individualized attention. Manuals, exercises and eLearning lessons, enhance the learning experience. TRM is also geared up for distance learning training program strategies and Learning Management System (LMS) configuration.
