Facilities management as a profession is evolving as it adapts to new technologies, globalization, and significant retirement gaps. Today’s facility professionals need knowledge and skills that go beyond traditional facility management, expanding into strategic business skills. ProFM delivers a fresh perspective and sets the global standard for facility management.
Today’s facility professionals are being asked to go beyond traditional FM tasks, to become agile and focused on driving organizational success. FM professionals at all levels need to understand the scope of knowledge and skills required of them today and in the future.
Facility professionals need one source for gaining the full spectrum of FM knowledge, skills, and abilities. The ProFM credential will provide the most current and comprehensive training to help individuals and organizations identify and fill their knowledge gaps.
The demand for qualified facility professionals is growing around the world, but without global professional standards and training, it is difficult for employers to identify and hire proven talent. The ProFM credential will build and validate the knowledge and skills of FM professionals.
Facility professionals, leading FM experts, and FM employers from around the globe have come together to identify the 24 competencies and knowledge areas required of today’s facility professionals. This is the foundation of the ProFM credential, the ProFM Body of Knowledge.
A diverse and voluntary group of respected Facility Management industry leaders, experts, and practitioners from around the globe have come together with the common goal of elevating and uniting the facility management profession.
They are leading the charge to define the required knowledge and competencies of today’s facility professionals, to create and deliver superior education, and to evaluate professionals against these standards.
No one knows what it takes to be a facility professional better than those who live it every day. An extensive research study was conducted to identify and validate the competencies and knowledge areas that form the body of knowledge for the ProFM credential.
It’s an exciting time in FM – roles and responsibilities are changing and growing to encompass more than ever before. To keep up with this evolution, we’ve created the ProFM Credential, a comprehensive program to set a new global standard in the industry. But we need your help to ensure ProFM contains exactly what you and your organization need to succeed.
