Who Should Become an FMP?

IFMA’s Facility Management Professional (FMP) designation is a knowledge-based credential that will help to accelerate an FM's transition into the profession and demonstrate a proven comprehension of the foundations of facility management. It is ideal for:

  • Facility management practitioners looking to increase their depth-of-knowledge in the foundational FM topics deemed critical by employers.
  • Individuals who are transitioning into the FM profession.
  • Related-industry practitioners such as architects, designers and safety engineers.
  • Facility-related product and service providers.
  • Students entering the profession from colleges, universities, certificate or technical programs.
  • LEED professionals seeking continuing education hours.
  • Federal employees and contractors looking to comply with the Federal Buildings Personnel Training Act (FBPTA).
  • Experienced FMs looking for a stepping stone toward the CFM credential.

 

“I recommend the FMP program to everyone that considers themselves a facility professional. The FMP credential helps professionals better understand and apply the core elements of the various FM disciplines, challenges their decision-making skills and  sets the stage for the CFM credential.  I feel stronger in my knowledge base knowing I passed the rigorous FMP online self-study program.” (Brian Rush, CFM, FMP)
