WHY IS ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDSHIP AND SUSTAINABILITY NOW CONSIDERED A CORE FM COMPETENCY?

THE CERTIFIED FACILITY MANAGER® (CFM)
The Certified Facility Manager® (CFM) credential sets the industry standard for ensuring the knowledge and abilities of practicing facility manager and is the most respected global credential in facility management. Now more than ever, recognizing competency, establishing benchmarks and setting performance standards are vital to the global economy. Never before have public and private sector employers relied as much on certification organizations as they do today. Professional associations are now taking a lead role in the development of credentialing programs, and IFMA’s CFM program was the first, and is still the only globally recognized certification in facility management.
IFMA’s certification process is designed to assess competency in the field through work experience, education and the ability to pass a comprehensive exam. Since the program began in 1992, more than 3,100 facility managers from 32 countries have achieved this prestigious recognition.
The CFM Exam is competency-based, testing what a person can do compared to standards that define the practice of facility management. One cannot take a course or a simple knowledge-based exam to earn the credential. IFMA’s competency-based program is at a higher level than a knowledge-based program, reflecting the growing importance of facility management in the international business world.
In addition, the CFM is the only global facility management certification available.
Goals of IFMA's certification program:
- Assure professional excellence

- Promote the added value of the profession
