Preparing for the CEM and CESP exam can be a challenging and time-consuming endeavor. The exam covers a broad base of knowledge, principles and best practices needed to achieve a higher level of heavy equipment management. The Association of Equipment Management Professionals’ (AEMP) IGNITE Learning Lab is designed to help those planning to take the exam develop knowledge of pertinent content, sort out what is covered on the exam, identify content areas of focus, and increase their expertise in the profession of equipment management.
The IGNITE Learning Lab is a seven-week course consisting of online learning modules, study guides, live preparatory sessions with the trainers and pre-tests to help participants prepare for the certification exam. It includes all the resources required to succeed in a scheduled training course to keep participants on target for achieving the goal of becoming certified. Because the program involves guided self-study, participants are recommended to set aside 4-6 hours per week for study and keeping up with the course content.
The launch date for the program is February 8, 2021, with live sessions scheduled February 24 and March 24. Instructors include:
- Corey Dungey, CEM Transportation Safety Manager, LafargeHolcim
