    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    An IREP meeting is held at least

    • A.

      Annually.

    • B.

      Quarterly.

    • C.

      Monthly.

    • D.

      Weekly.

    Correct Answer
    B. Quarterly.

    An IREP meeting is held quarterly because it is a regular meeting that is conducted to review and assess the progress and performance of a project or organization. Holding the meeting quarterly allows for a sufficient amount of time to pass between each meeting, providing enough time for meaningful progress to be made and discussed. Holding the meeting more frequently, such as monthly or weekly, may be too frequent and could result in limited progress to report or discuss.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    What off-equipment level of maintenance consists primarily of testing and repair or replacement of component parts?

    • A.

      Depot.

    • B.

      Scheduled.

    • C.

      Intermediate.

    • D.
