The NAAEI Takes AIME
Apartment Institute for Maintenance Excellence
By Maureen Lambe
We are continually striving to improve our educational and training opportunities for our members – it’s the foundation and hallmark of the NAAEI.
One of the advancement we’ve made, that I’m very proud of, is our CAMT (Certificate for Apartment Maintenance Technicians) program gaining the coveted accreditation from the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).
We join the ranks of only eight companies and organizations, such as the FBI Academy, U.S. Food and Drug Administration, and U.S. Army Combat Readiness/Safety Center offering ANSI accredited certificate programs.
The CAMT certificate has a term of validity that lasts a lifetime. To help our CAMT professionals remain up-to-date and ahead of the technology and regulatory curve, we developed the Apartment Institute Maintenance Excellence or AIME program.
Once a maintenance professional earns the CAMT certificate, he or she will be invited to join AIME, allowing them to continue their maintenance-focused education and training. AIME will help CAMT certificate holders build upon their strong and lasting maintenance foundation for personal and professional advancement.
To maintain AIME membership, members must pay membership dues of $50 and earn and report three continuing education credits annually. Property management companies that employ AIME members will have peace-of-mind that those employees are familiar with the latest regulatory and property management issues, such as R-410A, Bed Bugs or the EPA RRP rule.
NAAEI will continually assess the continuing education needs of AIME members and annually develop customized training that meets those needs. In addition, through NAAEI’s new Learning Management System, CAMT certificate holders and AIME members can track their continuing education and take advantage of online learning and webinars that cover current maintenance topics.
Congratulations to those who have earned the prestigious ANSI accredited CAMT certificate. We hope that you decide to take that next step and demonstrate your commitment to your career and professionalism and join AIME.
