Mississauga, ON –  The Plant Engineering and Maintenance Association of Canada (PEMAC) is a national, not for profit association providing global leadership, education and certification in worldclass maintenance, reliability and asset management practices. Founded in 1990, PEMAC members come from all industry sectors and include both public (government) and private businesses.

Services provided to its members include workforce and professional development. For example, its MMP (Maintenance Management Professional) education and certification program is delivered in Canada through the Continuing Education and Contract Training departments at selected colleges, institutes and universities using in-class, on-site and live, online formats in both official languages.

PEMAC is in the process of developing curriculum for a certificate program in asset management and requires a number of subject matter experts (SMEs) from the asset management field to assist in compiling and writing course content for this program.

This project is funded, in part, by the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities Ontario, through its Sector Initiative Funding program, and may require some ‘in-kind’ participation over and above the compensation value for each module development.

Those interested in participating in this rewarding educational project should contact PEMAC and send in a resume with a cover note detailing their past and current involvement in the asset management field.

Desired skills and experience

Those interested in applying are asked to study the 39 subjects of the Asset Management landscape. That list is downloadable at: http://www.gfmam.org/files/ISBN9780987179913_LANDSCAPE.pdf.

Then they should identify those subjects for which they consider themselves to have valuable applied experience as well as a general understanding of asset management as a holistic pursuit of an organization.

The closing date for applications is November 13, 2013. PEMAC is an equal opportunity organization. Send your information to PEMAC, 62400 Dundas St. W., Suite 402, Mississauga, ON L5K 2R8, attn: Executive Director, or send via e-mail to mail@pemac.org.
