IFMA developed certification to meet the recognized need of the facility management profession for a designation that would not only help FMs gain additional credibility but also establish increased global recognition for the profession.

The goals of IFMA's certification programs are to:

  • Assure professional excellence
  • Establish standards for global professional practice
  • Promote the added value of the profession
  • Influence the future direction of the profession

CFM's have the skills and expertise to address the issues confronting the modern facilities manager. CFM's comprise approximately 6-8% of a chapter's membership and are an extremely valuable asset for any chapter. Why not utilize this asset to address those perplexing problems that pop up from time to time, in your workplace?

The FMP designation demonstrates a proven comprehension of the basics of facility management and is a springboard to obtaining CFM certification.
