Seminar / Training Brief Description
March 3-6 12,000.00 Effective Communication for Engineers While recognizing the technical excellence of our Filipino engineers, we also realize that equipping them with necessary skills in speaking and writing gives them an advantage in their workplace.

It is for this reason that the National Engineering Center and the Learning for Empowerment and Development, Inc. are combining resources in order to provide a communication training program for engineers to provide them with additional professional leverage to deal with today's complex world.

March 5-6 6,500.00 Failure Analysis for Semiconductor Engineers This training is designed to familiarize the participants from the semiconductor industry with the basic tools and procedures of failure analysis which are necessary to arrive effectively at the root cause of the failure. A discussion of the common mechanisms in the failure of microelectronic components will further help the participant correctly interpret the findings of the analysis so as to come up with valid conclusions about the most likely cause of the failure.
March 18-20 9,000.00 Project Management in the Construction Industry A construction project will not be successful without the proper training and exposure of a project manager. Project management involves the crucial ingredients of leadership, motivation,

communication, conflict resolution and time management. This seminar is designed to enhance the managerial skills of middle and upper-level executives in the construction industry.

March 19-20 6,500.00 Focused Improvement and Tools The training is conducted in the environment of Lean Manufacturing and stresses the principles of continuous improvement to achieve competitive advantage. The participant will be immersed in the ways of Kaizen, the Deming tips and 6-SIGMA imperatives. These Focused Improvement disciplines and structure will drive your team/s towards desired levels of excellence. The participant will learn how to use the 7 QC tools and the 7 New Tools, how they are used to communicate, review and monitor, and utilizing inter-creative ways of ideation to shape up an implementation plan.
March 25-27 9,000.00 Maintenance of Rotating Machines Rotating machines are vital to the operation of most industrial plants. Production stoppage could result to heavy financial losses for the company. Therefore, it is of utmost importance that these machines should be given the necessary and required maintenance by highly qualified and knowledgeable maintenance engineers.

April 15-17 9,000.00 Professional Certificate in Facilities Management
Lecture Series I
The program is designed for practicing facilities managers, property and building administrators, engineers, architects, project managers, project coordinators and project supervisors.
April 21-24 12,000.00 Basic Foundation for Operation Risk Management This four-day course will provide an overview about operational risks from business processes and silo perspectives anchored on safety, health,environments and quality (SHEQ). The focus is on operational risks than financial risks.This course is best for all levels of managers, risk management practitioners and people new to this aspect.
April 27-29 9,000.00 Industrial Maintenance Management System The drive towards a more effective and flexible industrial system places greater demand on the performance of machinery and equipment. Machines and equipment notonly have to perform at high levels of capacity and reliability but also at minimum cost. The training course on "Maintenance Management" is designed to provide the managers of a maintenance system with the concepts, principles and tools necessary in cost-effective management.

Seminar / Training Brief Description
June 1-5 14,500 Certificate Program on Toxic and Hazardous Waste Management
THW 210: Toxic and Hazardous Waste Management
This training is under the Certificate Program on Toxic and Hazardous Waste Management conducted by the University of the Philippines Diliman(UPD) through the National Engineering Center (NEC). The objective of the program is to build the technical capacity of staff from government and private sectors on the key elements of toxic and hazardous waste management as a requirement for the implementation of RA 6969.

The courses under the program are based on four international training modules offered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and adapted for the Philippine setting. They were initially offered at NEC from September 2003 to March 2004 under the auspices of USEPA, USAEP/USAID and USDOD using lecturers from the US and RP. The second offering was conducted from November 2004 to March 2005.

Upon completion of the four courses, the participants will receive a Certificate of Completion in Toxic and Hazardous Waste Management. Those attending selected courses are granted a Certificate of Attendance for each completed course.

June 3-5 9,000.00 Maintenance of Electric Motors An electric motor is one of the vital components of an industrial plant. Its breakdown, just like most rotating machines, could lead to costly downtime and repairs, production stoppage and revenue losses. However, with sufficient knowledge on the operation and preventive maintenance aspects of this equipment, maintenance engineers could ensure a more reliable and profitable operation.

This seminar aims to enhance the participant's understanding of the principles of operation, control, and maintenance of these machines. It also aims to acquaint them with the selection of bearing type for motors, balancing principles and procedures, testing, troubleshooting and repair of such equipment.

June 17-19 9,000.00 Reliability-Centered Maintenance This is a practical course designed to provide an introduction to the RCM process and introduce the skills necessary to perform RCM analysis. The class is intended for anyone interested in performing RCM analysis or responsible for implementing an RCM program, including equipment maintainers and operators, maintenance planners and managers, and engineers. The course is based on an SAE JA-1011-compliant RCM process and provides practical knowledge and case studies that can be incorporated into any RCM process.
