“With almost 15 years of experience in equipment operations/ maintenance and construction projects, I thought I was already an expert in facility management. I was wrong. The IFMA FMP Credential Program courses have provided me with tons of information - from procedures, processes, evaluations, cost and people management, finance, and a lot more. I now have various new tools to help me manage my work better and smarter.”
—Efren Garcia, FMP, Facilities Supervisor, InterContinental Hotels Group, Baguio City, Philippines
“The quality and relevance of the course material is excellent. The course content, layout and real world application is very good and very pertinent to the work I perform every day. This course is very powerful for this profession, as it is a great overview of many different aspects of FM. Thank you to all the people who dedicated their time consolidating the materials.”
—Jaret Leah, FMP, Bus.Mgt.Dipl, Site Coordinator Property Management, Facility Management, The City of Calgary
"I transitioned from Logistics to Facilities Management within the last year and this course is tailor-made for someone in my situation, and it lives up to its expectation. It encompasses broad and deep insight into all of the many different aspects of FM. It is an invaluable complement to my on-the-job education. Along the way, I have been able to apply the material and use the books as great reference tools as well."
—Michael Phelan, IBM CHQ, CFP, RESO - Poughkeepsie, Ny., USA
“I love the IFMA FMP Credential Program. It’s a fantastic way to learn especially for people working, who do not have enough time to always study continuously. It has a unique flexibility and a great method of teaching.”
—Mohammed Gujbawu, FMP, Facilty Officer, Federal Inland Revenue Service, Nigeria
"As Director of Facility Services, it is my responsibility to ensure that best practices and competent staff are employed at all levels. As we develop our staff and succession planning, the FMP and CFM credentials will become mandatory qualifications to be considered for a leadership role. IFMA credentials are the best way to guarantee your future as a successful facility professional!"
—Burt Kaplan, FMP, Director of Facility Services, Project HOPE
“Earning my FMP has been a WIN-WIN! Not only has it expanded my facility knowledge base and provided me with excellent resources to fall back on, it also has given me the confidence to make important facility decisions for my company."
—Valerie Chavis-Kosko, FMP, Facilities Coordinator, Millennium Inorganic Chemicals, A Cristal Co., Hunt Valley, Md., USA
“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
"I recently graduated from Brigham Young University with a degree in Facility and Property Management. The FMP Credential Program was a great review of the things I learned while at BYU, and was also a great way for me to learn more about the best practices to use as an FM professional."
