Will this be the year you earn the Certified Professional Maintenance Manager (CPMM) designation?
See what the CPMM has meant to one local AFE member.
Having enjoyed a career in the trades for over 20 years, I began the process of moving into management. With a Commonwealth of MA Unrestricted Construction Supervisors License, I applied and accepted my first position as a Facilities Director for a local non-profit. To familiarize myself with best practices and network with other Facility Directors in my field, I joined AFE Chapter 74 in 2002.
To better hone my skills and improve my credibility, I took advantage of the CPMM course and got my certification. After a few years as the Facility Director for the local non-profit, I sought a more challenging position. When I applied for the Facilities Manager position for the largest heavy equipment dealership in New England — competing with hundreds of other candidates –the CPMM certification separated me as a nationally accredited, knowledgeable facility manager.
I have held this position for more than a dozen years now, and am working my way through the Board of Directors positions for my local AFE Chapter as a way to give back to an organization that has kept me current and knowledgeable in my field.
