Facility Engineering

Our new CDOM program has been developed with the input of industry professionals, lodging facility management companies and ownership groups (R.E.I.T.s) to provide a curriculum specifically focusing on ‘lodging facilities’ that are not hotels. The CDOM training program is developed specifically for directors of maintenance for residential-care-facilities such as assisted-living, senior citizen communities and nursing homes.

The Certified Director of Maintenance (CDOM) program is a self-paced professional development program for residential facility engineers and maintenance professionals. The CDOM study guide has been developed by the National Association of Hotel & Lodging Engineers in conjunction with vendors, standards writing organizations and various industry experts contributing as authors. The National Association of Hotel and Lodging Engineers (NAHLE) initially partnered with the American Hotel & Lodging Educational Institute (EI), Apple REIT, and Grainger to bring you our Chief Engineer training program. After being approached by an assisted living ownership group we e now offering a curriculum specifically focusing on lodging facilities other than hotels.
