Professional Development


For over thirty years AFE's certification programs have been the standard for an ever-evolving industry. Today, AFE manages and maintains three certification programs: Certified Plant Engineer (CPE), Certified Plant Supervisor (CPS), the Certified Professional Maintenance Manager (CPMM). Each certification is designed to create an efficient staff that is ahead of the industry curve and ready to work toward a higher goal.





Certified Professional Maintenance Manager (CPMM)

With the wide assortment training fields covered by our Certified Professional Maintenance Manager (CPMM) program, you can rest assured that your staff will be able to produce at the highest level. Topics include: Preventative Maintenance, Work Flow-Planning and Scheduling, Computerized Maintenance, Investment Returns, and Total Productive Management to name a few. The CPMM shows a mastering of current teachings and a desire to learn as new methods are developed. Anyone that is currently employed as maintenance professional and has two years experience is eligible to take the exam.



Certified Professional Supervisor (CPS)

The CPS review program has been designed for the supervisory professional or those aspiring to fill the ranks of supervision. Our uniquely designed curricula guide you through the most relevant materials to ensure maximum retention for the plant/facility supervisor. Basic supervision requires individuals understand and can exhibit what to do in the face of change, effective communication skills, how to empower employees, and how to enable them to develop the confidence to overcome the daily challenges they face. 


Certified Plant Engineer (CPE)

The Certified Plant Engineer (CPE) program establishes a standard of knowledge for all plant engineers. By targeting specific areas of expertise in a wide variety of fields it enables your staff to produce at a more efficient level in all aspects of their jobs. Some of the areas covered include: Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering, OSHA, HVAC, and Economics/ Management. Having a certified staff assures a level of job understanding across the board, creating a unified team able to tackle problems in a timely, cost efficient manner.
