MaintSmart CMMS Software Completes US Dept Of Energy Sponsored Training for Iraq's Ministry of Electricity

North Bend, OR (PressExposure) August 19, 2013 -- MaintSmart CMMS Software Successfully Completes United States Department of Energy Sponsored Training for Iraq's Ministry of Electricity in Amman, Jordan Iraq's Ministry of Electricity (MOE) currently uses MaintSmart CMMS software ( and was recently trained in Amman Jordan.

This training was sponsored by the United States Department of Energy (DOE), United States Department of State (DOS) and coordinated through Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. Students included electrical engineers from throughout Iraq. This training session lasted three days and also covered other aspects of Iraq's energy sector and is termed the "Electricity Training Program" by DOE.

MaintSmart was honored and grateful to be able to participate in this program. MaintSmart's training covered all aspects of the MaintSmart CMMS (computerized maintenance management system) software using MOE gas turbine data for the examples and instruction. MaintSmart is a critical piece of this training program effort by DOE and DOS in an effort to "continue to improve the reliability, survivability and resiliency of the energy sector in Iraq" as stated by the William N. Bryan, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Infrastructure Security and Energy Restoration of the DOE. Mr. Bryan went on to say: "Without your (MaintSmart's) efforts DOE would not have been able to provide such successful training sessions."

As with any training effort the willingness to learn, general subject knowledge and interaction of the students played a huge part also. Iraq is gifted with many highly skilled technical people and engineers. After careful deliberation the ministry chose MaintSmart back in 2009.
