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.

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.

His book will soon be available at AFE’s bookstore online and at Facilities America (where he’ll sign it for you).
