Topic: New Certification Programs
AFE’s Professional Development Committee has begun developing a Supervisory Certification Program to compliment our world-class CPE and CPMM programs. Your input will be invaluable in identifying core competencies of a Facility Supervisor. In addition, the Committee will be discussing the need for other certification programs within the facility engineering, maintenance and operations fields.

Wednesday, September 3, 12 (noon) EST
Topic: Quality Maintenance
John M. Gross, PE, CPE, author of "Fundamentals of Preventive Maintenance" and upcoming speaker at AFE’s Facilities America will host a session on applying leading principals of quality control to maintenance. An expert (black belt) in Six Sigma, Gross promises to provide information that will enhance your Department and improve your bottom line. His book will soon be available at AFE’s bookstore online and at Facilities America (where he’ll sign it for you).
