Multi-Industry Experience

Educational programs run by Andrew Jardine draw on his long history of application-based research in the field of maintenance management and his connections to leading practitioners and consultants in the field. The programs’ objective is to combine high quality content delivered by leading instructors with the academic rigour of the University of Toronto, a world class university. The programs are designed to provide practitioners with

first-hand knowledge to make them more effective in their workplaces in a short period of time through an intensive, interactive training environment. Managers from all corners of the globe and from a wide variety of industrial and governmental organizations have attended earlier sessions. Programs can also be presented in-house at a particular company and tailored to meet the needs of that company.

Courses Offered

5 Day Course

Other Options

Every November, the School of Continuing Studies at The University of Toronto works with Andrew Jardine to provide a five-day course in Physical Asset Management. This more intensive program is always highly rated, with attendees regularly recommending it to their colleagues. Although the course is fairly intensive, featuring both expert instructors and guest lecturers, Professor Jardine makes sure his students enjoy themselves: a highlight for many is dinner at the CN Tower.
