PEMAC is a national not for profit association providing global leadership, education and certification in asset management practices.


Over the last 20 years our focus has been on the development and growth of our signature Maintenance Management Professional Certificate program.  Dedicated to remaining leaders in education and certification we have just initiated a new certificate program in Asset Management aligned with ISO 5500x.

Our Maintenance Management Professional Education & Certification Program is offered by 16 teaching institutions across Canada and online. Completion of the program leads to the MMP professional designation. The new Asset Management certificate program leads to a CAMP professional designation and is offered online.
