My name is Victor Manriquez, I’m a professional Mechanical Engineer, formed in the Pontificia Universidad Catolica del Peru. After my main studies I did one Master in Renewable Energies by the Universidad Internacional de Andalucia in Spain. I also count with a Diploma in Education and just finished a Master on Education.
It was in the year 1986 that I began my professional career in the maintenance and reliability area. I’ve had the opportunity to work for companies in the oil & gas, mining, and manufacturing sectors. I also had the chance to work in the most challenging environments like the jungle (wet and rainy), mountains (over 5000 meters above sea level), desert (temperatures around 40°) and offshore platforms.
Since the year 2009 I started to develop training on maintenance and reliability issues. In 2012, I got my CMRP certification and began shortly after to make training on the subjects of the SMRP Maintenance and Reliability Body of Knowledge Five Pillars. So far by now, I´ve developed 119 training activities with circa 1900 hours, 52 of them with 866 hours on the SMRP BoK issues.
I’ve developed trainings activities in Peru, my country, and in Costa Rica, Mexico, Bolivia, Argentina y Dominican Republic.
I’ve had the possibility of writing some articles in Spanish and English. These 51 articles have been published on different magazines on maintenance and reliability issues. Three of these were published in the SMRP magazine “Solutions”.
In the years 2013 and 2016 I was presenter in the 21st and 24th SMRP Annual Conferences in Indianapolis and Jacksonville respectively. I’ve been also presenter in some local engineering and maintenance conventions in my country.
In 2016 during the 24th Annual Conference I had the chance to apply for the Certified Asset Management Assessor (CAMA) certification, which I approved.
