Candidates who apply to take this exam acknowledge that this registration represents a self-study examination program.
To earn the Certified Professional Maintenance Manager (CPMM) credential, a candidate must achieve a passing score on the CPMM Exam. The CPMM Exam is offered four times each calendar year. To sit for the CPMM Exam, a candidate must either: (1) meet the CPMM professional experience requirements – i.e. two years of maintenance management experience or four years of overall work experience; or (2) pass the CPMM Review Course – i.e. live review course (LRC) or Online Review Course (ORC). The CPMM Exam is administered through the Exam Builder portal and does not require a proctor.
Sitting for the CPMM Exam involves submitting an application that includes verification of the candidate’s work history. It may take up to ten days to process a candidate’s application. Additionally, all examination fees must be paid before the candidate can receive her or his digital certificate and badge signifying successful attainment of the credential. The examination fee includes the latest edition of the CPMM Review Pack.
Most facilities have a building automation system (BAS), but few perform as intended. In this webinar, we will explore building automation systems and how to optimize them for peak operation in the real world. The primary goal of the modern BAS is to control the building’s HVAC system to deliver a comfortable, consistent indoor environment while at the same time optimizing energy consumption. However, many of today’s building automation systems do not operate as intended and fall short of this goal.

The Civil War ended in the spring of 1865 when Robert E. Lee surrendered the last major Confederate army to Ulysses S. Grant at the Appomattox Court House on April 9. Over 620,000 soldiers died in the four-year conflict. General John A. Logan of the Grand Army of the Republic (an organization of Union veterans) would eventually select May 30, 1868, as a day to pay tribute to the fallen:
“The 30th of May, 1868, is designated for the purpose of strewing with flowers, or otherwise decorating the graves of comrades who died in defense of their country during the late rebellion, and whose bodies now lie in almost every city, village, and hamlet churchyard in the land…”
Logan apparently chose May 30 because flowers would be in bloom all over the country. By the end of the 19th century, Memorial Day ceremonies were being held on May 30 throughout the nation. States passed proclamations, and the Army and Navy adopted rules for proper observance at their facilities.
The crowd attending the first Memorial Day ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery was approximately the same size as those that attend today’s observance — about 5,000 people. Small American flags were placed on each grave — a tradition still followed at many national cemeteries today. In recent years, the custom has grown in many families to decorate the graves of all departed loved ones.
By 1890, each Northern state had made Decoration Day an official holiday. But this was not the case in the South, where states continued to honor their dead on separate days until after the First World War.
The May 30 date held for decades. But, in 1968, Congress passed the Uniform Monday Holiday Act, which established Memorial Day as the last Monday in May in order to create a three-day weekend for federal employees. The change took place in 1971. The same law also declared Memorial Day a federal holiday.
