Organizational Quality Management 
APEGBC’s Organizational Quality Management (OQM) Program has been developed to improve the quality management of professional engineering and geoscience practices at the individual and organizational level. This voluntary program offers certification to participating organizations. 

There are many benefits to OQM Certification. Depending on the organizations area of practice, its size (sole practitioners included), and the products and/or services it offers, the benefits may significantly differ. One thing that remains consistent is that OQM Certification benefits your business, clients and ultimately the public.

Kelly Dayman, AScT. is the Organizational Quality Management program Administrator at APEGBC.  Kelly has over 20 years experience in the consulting and manufacturing industries, 12 years of which he has been involved in Quality Management Programs. Kelly is an ISO 9001 Lead Auditor and joined APEGBC specifically to launch the OQM Program and be the program administrator.

Kimberley SunMine Solar Photovoltaic Generating Station
