ISA Certified Industrial
Maintenance Mechanic (CIMM)

In response to industry requests,
ISA has developed a certification
program to provide a non-biased,
third-party assessment and
confirmation of the skills of industrial
maintenance mechanics.

CIMMs are multi-skilled individuals
responsible for preventive, predictive,
and corrective maintenance. They
perform troubleshooting and analysis,
and apply sound maintenance
practices in all aspects of their work.
Their expertise is primarily mechanical
in nature as opposed to
instrumentation or electrical.

     CIMM Benefits Employers                        CIMM Benefits Maintenance Mechanics
