PEMAC Launches New Maintenance Work Management Certificate


MISSISSAUGA, (April 22, 2021) – PEMAC Asset Management Association of Canada is proud to announce the launch of the Maintenance Work Management Certificate. Designed for maintenance practitioners such as planners, schedulers, supervisors, coordinators, as well as other operations personnel who work alongside maintenance, the PEMAC Maintenance Work Management Certificate training ensures professionals have the skills to ensure the right maintenance work is done on the correct assets, at the right time, using the right resources.  

Using Module 1 and Module 6 of the larger Maintenance Management Professional (MMP) program offered by accredited teaching institutions across Canada, this abridged offering will provide an overview of the benefits of an integrated maintenance management strategy, and then focus on the fundamental principles of work management processes with emphasis on maintenance work planning, scheduling, and work coordination methods.

While all modules of the MMP program are required to receive the MMP designation, professionals may be attracted initially to a more focused learning path to meet their current needs. The Maintenance Work Management Certificate recognizes participants' newly acquired knowledge and skills that can immediately be put to use to improve organizational operations. This certificate is also a great point of entry for maintenance tradesperson seeking to explore other roles in maintenance teams, such as planning & scheduling or supervision.

Participants who successfully complete Module 1 and Module 6 of the Maintenance Management Professional (MMP) program can apply for the PEMAC issued Maintenance Work Management Certificate on the PEMAC website. Experienced practitioners may be eligible to utilize PEMAC’s PLAR process to earn credit for a portion of the training needed to obtain the Maintenance Work Management Certificate sooner.
