Boost Knowledge & Skills

Our goal is to improve knowledge, and actual job-focused performance. This certification WILL boost confidence and capability for Maintenance Planners.

What’s a Wave?

Participants will go through the entire certification journey in a group that we call a “Wave.” Each Wave is made up of 5 participants and led by a Marshall Institute coach. All Waves will follow the same pathway, but will have different days allocated to required coaching sessions.

Coach-led

Each Wave is supported by a Marshall Institute coach. Their role is to provide guidance, feedback and growth opportunities to each participant during the knowledge modules and application exercises. The coach will lead group and individual coaching sessions.
