Course Description:  Isn't it frustrating when the equipment in your office breaks down, malfunctions or just isn't running efficiently?  Of course, when this occurs, it is usually followed with time and money-consuming "down time" depending on the issue(s) or problem(s).  One of the main reasons for this is the lack of or improper maintenance, equipment that has been "patched," or a major breakdown.  Hopefully, it is not a regular occurrence, yet it usually happens when the day is overbooked and the phones are ringing off of the hook.  To help minimize the risk of these incidents happening, attend this course and learn proper recommended maintenance procedures and time intervals for all of your equipment.  Think of the time and money you could save.
