Developed and authorized by the Plant Engineering and Maintenance Association of Canada the MMP Education and Certification Program consists of eight modules. The modules are structured to progressively help participants understand and embrace the various concepts necessary to be effective as a maintenance and physical asset management professional.


MMP program provides training and accreditation to those aspiring to, or already in, maintenance management or supervisory positions. Certified MMPs are qualified to provide cost effective management of a business’s physical assets.
