The world of maintenance can be unforgiving and chaotic. All it takes is for one mishap, one bad day, one task to slip through the cracks. That’s all it takes to cost a team millions of dollars, or even worse, risk someone’s life. Thus, you can imagine that the level of skill, craft, and attention to detail in work sectors like these are immense. The demands for high skill labor in maintenance and reliability are incredible. Yet, an ever present and ever growing “skill gap” exists. There just aren’t enough qualified apprentices to fill in the void left behind by retiring professionals - the ones who have (literally) paved the way, only to look back to see that not enough people are following down the road. If we don’t start making progress now, our infrastructure could possibly collapse by the next generation, if not in the coming decade.
