The International Facility Management Association's Facility Management Professional (FMP) credential is an assessment-based program aligned with IFMA's global task analysis. It is designed to ensure that those receiving the FMP credential demonstrate a proven comprehension of the foundations of facility management. The program is a comprehensive training and assessment program that provides IFMA members, chapters, councils, partners and facility management professionals with the practical knowledge and skills required by today's employers. Facility managers make use of all aspects of project management beginning with planning, scoping, scheduling and ending with evaluating. Project planning and management are core skills in facility management. The skills are particularly important because of the wide range of projects assigned to the facility organization. Projects vary in scope, complexity, duration, and financial risk.
There are no specific educational or experiential requirements to be eligible to earn the FMP credential.
The FMP Credential Program awarded by IFMA combines printed materials, interactive online study tools, and FMP final assessments in one program. The four knowledge domains and required modules taught and tested by the IFMA FMP Credential Program are:
- Operations and Maintenance
- Project Management
- Finance and Business Essentials
- Leadership and Strategy Essentials
Each of the above modules includes an exit exam. After passing each exam with a 75% or above, a student simply has to submit an application fee to IFMA to receive credentialing.
Each class is offered in two consecutive full days, Friday and Saturday.
In order to obtain an overall program certificate for the Facilities Management Certificate Program, participants must notify the Continuing Education office upon overall program completion.
