What the SFP Credential Program Can Do For You:

Learn to use knowledge-based and data-driven methods to develop solutions that provide the highest value of your building, your organization, and your community.  The SFP Credential Program will help you to challenge yourself and your organization to go beyond the current thinking while implementing best practices to impact your organization's economic, ecological, and social bottom line.

COURSE OVERVIEW:

The SFP program is made up of three different focus areas:  Strategy and Alignment for Sustainable Facility Management, Managing Sustainable Facilities, and Operating Sustainable Facilities.  These focus areas provide a complete picture of how SFP's can improve the sustainability of their facilities in all eight major categories of sustainable facility management as defined by IFMA:  energy, water, materials and resources, workplace management, indoor environment quality, quality of services, waste and site impact.  This series of focus areas will equip the SFP to integrate sustainability efforts with the organization's value and strategies, present a business case for sustainability initiatives, evaluate initiatives from a financial point of view, and track and report accomplishments.

FOCUS AREAS:

  • Strategy and Alignment for Sustainable Facility Management:  This focus area summarizes key concepts related to sustainable facility management from the organizational level and illustrates linkages and actions facility managers must take into consideration in order to make the business case for sustainability in their own facilities.
  • Managing Sustainable Facilities:  This focus area looks in depth at the process of aligning a facility's sustainable plan with an organization's vision, strategic goals and policies.  Learn strategies in an SFP's business case for sustainability within your organization, and provide the details behind the plans to prepare for, lead and implement those changes.
  • Operating Sustainable Facilities:  This focus area looks at ways in which SFP's can operate their facilities in a more sustainable manner through changes in buidling equipment and technology as well as changes in operations and maintenance procedures.  This focus area is organized around the eight major categories of sustainable facility management.
