The Division of Capital Asset Management and Maintenance's (DCAMM's) Office of Facilities Management and Maintenance (OFMM), Massachusetts Facilities Management Association (MAFMA) coordinates training opportunities for facilities personnel throughout the Commonwealth.

MAFMA University

Each year we offer a curriculum of informative subjects covering the “best practices” on facility operations and maintenance. In these tight fiscal times, this is an excellent opportunity for you to "hone your skills" and/or assist your staff. And for MAFMA members there is no charge to your agency or facility.

To obtain a list of current classes being offered, locations and schedules please contact DCAMM’s Training Manager, Lorraine “Rainie” Barton lorraine.barton@state.ma.us

Please contact Tom Tagan for further information. Francis.Tagan@state.ma.us.  MAFMA members are encouraged to notify The Division of Capital Asset Management and Maintenance about training programs that they recommend or which appear to be worth pursuing. Send information about potential training programs to Tom or Rainie.
