Enrollment is open for the 2008 Certified Plant Maintenance Manager (CPMM) program offered by the Association for Facilities Engineering (AFE).
The CPMM program, soon entering its second decade, is designed for people who have hands-on or technical, but not managerial, expertise in the increasingly complex maintenance arena. Those who complete this program – as proven by passing an 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.
There are three ways to pursue the program:
Online. AFE will conduct the program from noon to 4 p.m. ET on January 8, 11, 15, 18, 22, 25, 29 and February 1. Participants must have access to a telephone and computer.
On site. AFE will conduct the course in a traditional classroom setting March 10-14 in Indianapolis, and June 9-13 and September 22-26 at locations to be determined.
On ones own. Participants can study independently and be tested at their workplaces with proctors.
Advance registration is required. Eligibility requirements are current employment as a maintenance professional and two years of experience.
As a study aid, AFE offers the "CPMM Review Pak" containing the topics the exam covers.
