AEMP offering certification exam at Fall Asset Management Symposium in Nashville
AEMP (Association of Equipment Management Professionals), an organization for asset management professionals of off-road fleets, will offer an opportunity to test for professional certification at this year’s Fall Asset Management Symposium in Nashville, Tenn. Exams will be administered on Nov. 3 from 8 a.m. to noon. Those wishing to take a certification exam must submit the appropriate application, and purchase and study the “Career Equipment Fleet Manager Manual.” Application deadline for the 2011 Fall Symposium test date is Oct. 14.
AEMP’s certification programs showcase the specialized skill set needed by industry professionals. Each of the certifications offered cover the 17 core competencies AEMP has identified as necessary to be an effective equipment professional, everything from benchmarking and life-cycle analysis to environmental and safety requirements. In addition, the certification programs give participants the opportunity to self improve by expanding their knowledge and staying up to date in the industry.
Three credentials are available: Certified Equipment Manager (CEM), Equipment Manager Specialist (EMS), and Certified Equipment Support Professional (CESP). Recognized as the industry standard, AEMP’s CEM program has been in existence since 1996, and is geared toward equipment management professionals with a minimum of five years experience managing fleet assets. The EMS credential is designed as an entry-level certification for those seeking to expand their skills and plan for a career in fleet asset management. Though it’s not required, the EMS is often viewed as a great stepping stone toward CEM certification. In the spring of 2011, AEMP launched a new certification credential, the CESP, targeted toward OEM/supplier representatives.
Those looking to become certified will also have the opportunity to take advantage of the Professional Development Institute (PDI) at the Fall Symposium. PDI participants can attend classes that pertain to each of the 17 core competency areas. Each offering is led by an industry expert.
Applications are now available online at http://www.aemp.org/education/certification/about_certifications.html. For more information on certification opportunities contact Vice-President of Education Jim Phillips, at 970-384-0510, ext. 202, or email email@example.com.
