24 Things Every Facility Professional Should Know.

The foundation of the ProFM credential is the ProFM Body of Knowledge, which defines the 19 functional FM knowledge areas and five cross-functional competencies required of today’s facility management professionals.

The U.S. Federal Buildings Personnel Act (FBPTA) standards were a key input in the design of the ProFM Credential Program. ProFM is one of the top most aligned FM training programs at 82%, with 120 of the 146 FM performance criteria covered.
