Copart’s Equipment and Safety Team has partnered with the AEMP (Association of Equipment Management Professionals) since 2005. The AEMP is the only professional organization for equipment managers and their teams who manage and maintain heavy, off-road fleets.
The organization, sponsored by major equipment manufacturers, held its annual conference in Orlando, Florida to introduce the newest technologies in the industry. Eight members of Copart’s Equipment and Safety Team attended this year’s two and a half day conference where they took industry specific classes on how to connect with peers and manufacturers.
The AEMP also recognizes members who want to further their industry education by offering certifications such as the CEM (Certified Equipment Manager) certification. The comprehensive 4-hour exam covers 17 different competencies. Three of Copart’s employees successfully earned the CEM (Certified Equipment Manager) certification: Joe O’Leary, Jim Sulkanen and Joe Walloch.
Every year the team walks away with more knowledge, connections and professional skills that help strengthen our team’s ability to stay ahead of competitors.
