Earn a credit good towards the cost of your tuition


    ProFM™ is the most current, relevant, and universally-applicable credential in facility management. This credential elevates the FM profession and advances the careers of facility professionals by broadening skills, updating knowledge and providing recognition for the achievement of this global standard.

    The facility management industry continues to change as it adapts to increasing globalization, significant retirement gaps and advancing technology. Today’s FM professionals need a broad range of skills, expanding beyond traditional FM tasks, to optimize building performance, develop business strategies and satisfy building occupants. And while demand for facility professionals is growing around the world, a lack of universally accepted standards and training make it difficult for employers to identify and hire proven talent.

    The ProFM credential was created to help with just that. The credential is based on a comprehensive body of knowledge that incorporates 19 knowledge areas and 5 cross-functional competencies that were created with the input of more than 3,300 professionals, and vetted by some of the top names in FM worldwide.

    Program Topics:

    • Operations and maintenance
    • Project management
    • Finance and business essentials
    • Leadership and strategy essentials


    The ProFM™ Credential Program materials include online ProFM™ final assessments. To earn the ProFM™ credential, you must pass your final assessment exam with a score of 70% or higher. The final assessment exam may be retaken as many times as required within a 12 month period.

    Course Benefits

    Now is the time to start becoming an FM of the future, ensuring that you and your organization are prepared to meet the changing roles and needs that the facility management industry as a whole is facing.
