Welcome to the AFE Region 8 website. This is your portal to the region’s local chapters, where you have the best opportunity to connect with other facility Engineers, Directors, Managers and Operators, and to the vendors and suppliers who have solutions to your facility problems. AFE membership has been enormously useful to me over the years. Through chapter and regional events, local facility tours and technical presentations, AFE can help you keep up to date and informed about the latest developments and tools being used at major facilities in the New England region. Our local chapter tours and meetings allow you to meet with peers, gain insights from local experts and create lasting relationships with others who share a passion for our industry.

Both plant/facilities maintenance professionals and property management executives must confront a variety of complex issues. Therefore, they must possess extensive knowledge of the many facets of maintenance management. Earning the Certified Professional Maintenance Manager credential will indicate, to both your employer and industry officials, that you possess in-depth expertise in plant and facilities maintenance management. The CPMM program is updated annually to keep it on the cutting edge of techniques and technologies in maintenance management.

You can take the CPMM exam at either (1) an AFE review program site or (2) at your workplace, using a proctor from your employer’s human resources. If that is not an option, a boss or supervisor may act as your proctor. If you take the exam at your facility you have two format options: paper-based or on-line. Test materials are forwarded to the proctor one day in advance of your exam date. Upon completion of the exam, the proctor will return the materials to the certification department for grading.
