The International Facility Management Association (IFMA) has been recognized by the United States General Services Administration (GSA) as a provider of professional credentials that are in alignment with the requirements of the Federal Buildings Personnel Training Act (FBPTA). IFMA’s three world-renowned credentials are significantly aligned with the 232 performances identified by the GSA for men and women running federal facilities.

The Certified Facility Manager® (CFM®) credential program covers 144 of the identified performances. The Facility Management Professional (FMP) covers 76 and the Sustainability Facility Professional® (SFP®) covers 31 specifically geared toward skills needed to minimize environmental impacts. These industry-leading credentials will be part of every federal agency’s compliance strategy.

“For decades, IFMA has been the gold standard for facility management professionals looking to validate existing skills and develop new ones,” said IFMA President and CEO Tony Keane. “With the passage of the Federal Building Personnel Training Act, the U.S. federal government acknowledged for the first time in code the critical role of facility management (FM). It comes as no surprise that IFMA’s time-tested credentials are aligned with the GSA-identified performance requirements. IFMA will continue to work shoulder-to-shoulder with GSA and all of our government-sector partners to provide the most up-to-date information in a rapidly evolving industry.”
