MainTrain Conference

For thirteen years, PEMAC's MainTrain conference has been the source for professional development for asset management, maintenance and reliability professionals in every industry. Canada's largest annual maintenance and physical asset management conference exhibition and networking event, will be held September 19 to 22, 2016 in Toronto, Ontario.


Chapter Activities

Through participation at Chapter events you can meet people who do a similar job to you for another company or in another industry and get a fresh view point on challenges you are currently facing. In addition, if you are looking for work or looking for new team members, Chapter events are a great way to connect with people and companies with a view to professionalism.


Training Events

Education and training is also a great networking opportunity. Many participants in the Maintenance Management Professional Certificate and Asset Management Professional program state that meeting and learning with other professionals was one of the key benefits of taking an MMP & AMP courses.
