Maintenance Skills Training Program

We provide the custom, real world, performance-based maintenance skills training that achieves real results.


MST offers the industry’s best training, from the effectiveness of the curriculum, instructor, and classroom setup to the real-world applications for our lab exercises and skills assessments. We continually work to improve each element of the maintenance skills training delivery and guarantee lasting results! From custom onsite training to training simulator packages, our solutions are backed by decades of experience and proven by companies of all sizes.

We pride ourselves in maintenance skills training that is:

We cater to the facility’s needs and will teach classes at your site any day, any shift, and any time. We have both onsite and online training options.

Taught By Experts

Only qualified, experienced instructors with an average of 25+ years of real-world experience teach our maintenance skills training courses. Our instructors can help coach your technicians and pass along their valuable knowledge during training.


Trainees must be able to complete the hands-on objective before passing; this assists MST with assessing progressive comprehension.


Maintenance skills training is based on the MST’s Job Task Analysis performed at the facility and targets the individual needs of technicians based on the Maintenance Skills Assessment Test results.

Supported By Training Simulators

We use state-of-the-art simulators in order to provide real-world maintenance skills training components and hands-on practice during class.

In 25 years of maintenance skills training, we have instructed over 10,000 maintenance technicians and have improved our process each step of the way.
