Certified Equipment Manager (CEM) 

The CEM credential signifies advanced experience and knowledge in all areas of fleet management.  It is an attainable goal for equipment managers who want to be identified as exceptional.  To achieve this goal, it takes personal motivation and depends on dedication to professionalism.


Equipment Manager Specialist (EMS) 

New responsibilities, challenges and expectations arise as one progresses in their career.  To meet the need for professional development at the management level, AEMP developed the EMS.  It is a recognized standard for developing the qualifications of a person involved with an equipment fleet in the first five years of career development.


Certified Equipment Support Professional (CESP) 

In today’s competitive market, quality and customer satisfaction go hand in hand.  To increase consumer confidence and trust, and help build  more prosperous relationships, AEMP now offers a certification program for equipment suppliers. The purpose of the CESP is to provide a high standard of certification to a professional supplier who possesses a depth of understanding of fleet management skills and who demonstrates the ability to interact on a professional level with all fleet-related professionals.
