About

Increase your skillset, build credibility, gain a competitive edge, network with other FM professionals. IFMA’s FMP is for facility management professionals, those who work with FM’s and those who work in related industries seeking to advance in the FM field. It’s an opportunity to develop the knowledge and skills that facility management employers are demanding while proving to your current and prospective employers that your abilities meet or exceed industry-wide standards.

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).
