IABME annually promotes a number of classes taught by the Iowa Area Community Colleges on boiler operation & maintenance, building maintenance, and industrial housekeeping maintenance technology. These classes are conducted throughout the state of Iowa for the building maintenance profession. We publish the trade newsletter "Iowa Building Maintenance News," the only newsletter devoted to Iowa building maintenance personnel.
We provides instructional textbooks, brochures, videos, and films available for use in the classroom as study guides for quality education. IABME administers a Voluntary Certification Program for boiler operation, air-conditioning and heat pumps, electrical principles, building maintenance, and industrial housekeeping.
IABME sponsors a maintenance school held one week every summer in Ames, IA, consisting of certification classes, as well as one day seminars. Continuing Education Units (CEUs) are awarded after completion.
Membership in a local chapter is a place where members can share knowledge and problems with others at monthly meetings held throughout the year. IABME helps obtain programs for local chapter meetings.
We are constantly searching for methods and materials to help make building maintenance personnel more proficient in their chosen profession.
