PEMAC, the Plant Engineering and Maintenance Association of Canada, held presentations and meetings jointly with colleges offering its MMP (Maintenance Management Professional) certification program in Ontario last month. The presentations were followed by discussions on the value of education and training to industry through the MMP program.

The MMP program touches everyone who invests in physical assets in order to make, produce or provide products or services, said Norm Clegg, executive director of PEMAC.

“A key performance indicator (KPI) for any business is how much revenue is generated by the book value of its physical assets (equipment and structures). Business today demands that physical assets must be managed effectively,” he said.

“How well the physical assets are at doing what they were designed for, and supposed to do, depends largely on how well they are maintained and restored by the engineering and maintenance practitioners and managers of a company,” noted Clegg.

The MMP program took seven years to develop by industry practitioners who recognized the needs and requirements of the plant maintenance profession and wanted to raise industry and public recognition for the contribution these employees bring to businesses: capacity, reliability, best lifecycle costing of the physical assets in their care, safety and ROI from capital investments.

The sessions were held at the Humber Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning, Toronto, and Fanshawe College, London, Ont. For details on the association, visit www.pemac.org.
