The Association for Facilities Engineering is accepting registrations for the Certified Plant Maintenance Manager programs to be conducted in Salt Lake City, UT (September 22-26, 2008) and through a series of eight interactive virtual seminars beginning October 6. As a third option for pursuing this prestigious credential, students may study independently and be tested at their workplaces with proctors available at their convenience.
The CPMM program, now in its second decade, is suitable for facilities personnel who work in manufacturing, schools, healthcare, government, and other segments of business. It was designed for people who have hands-on or technical, but not managerial, expertise in the increasingly complex maintenance arena.
Those who successfully complete this program—as proven by passing a special examination—have up-to-date, useful knowledge of concepts such as maintenance management, preventive maintenance, inventory and procurement, work orders, work flow, planning and scheduling, computerized maintenance management, total productive maintenance, maintenance financials, and return on investment.
Eligibility requirements are current employment as a facility maintenance professional and two years of experience.
As a study aid, AFE offers the “CPMM Review Pak” containing the topics covered by the exam. Terry Wireman is one of the program’s instructors. Click this link to apply.
