As a young woman in FM, the ProFM credential will help me signal to the FM community that I am committed to my personal growth and the growth of the FM industry as a whole. By elevating my knowledge base, I will be able to add value to conversations with my peers.
Coming from a background in operations, I had leadership skills but a gap in technical FM knowledge. I earned the ProFM credential to build my knowledge, confidence and competence in FM.
While not every topic covered may be pertinent to every learner, and you may never have to deal with certain information or situations, you walk away with an understanding of what’s important to our industry and come away with a greater respect for our industry and the work we do. It’s more than turning wrenches or processing work orders.
Good overall content for any FM, whether starting their career or well into their career…the information and concepts are current, detailed and well presented. The program package itself will serve as an excellent collection of FM reference material, for many years to come.
I like how ProFMI broke out the information for learning. The program provided a good, well-rounded credential that touches on everything an FM needs to know without being too overwhelming.
I recommend that all FM professionals earn the ProFM credential because of the robust nature of the training and the standard it sets. ProFM helps expose one’s strengths or weaknesses and test your understanding of what has been taught and its application in real-life scenarios.
My ProFM credential will improve the results and quality of services we will render to clients as ProFM knowledge will always be demonstrated.
For quite some time, I felt that my role was developed through a series of events, and I had mostly built it up by taking on all the broken and unwanted tasks that didn’t fit into other roles or departments. After going through this program, I have a better understanding of what the role can look like, and how all the pieces fit together.
As someone wanting a new career path in multiple areas, the ProFM Credential Program really stood out. I decided to go BIG from the start and get my credentials.
ProFM offered a broad education on facility management ranging through 19 different categories, but united by 5 consistent themes throughout that tied everything together. The program took a different approach to FM that expanded my thought processes in dealing with short-term and long-term issues.
Because the ProFM program is all encompassing and comprehensive, the knowledge that I have gained will make my day-to-day career responsibilities much easier to fulfill. Whether dealing with emergency maintenance issues or motivating team members, earning this credential has made it easier to deal with almost any facility related issues I face.
The knowledge I gained from the ProFM program gives me the confidence to know I can provide the best facility management experience for all involved and keeps me up to speed with the fast-changing facility management setting.
I earned the ProFM credential to help shape and expand my FM knowledge base beyond the mechanical trades. What I’ve learned through the program will help me remove myself from the daily tasks and look at the department as a whole. ProFM opens your mind to all facets of the FM profession, from the building of a facility to the response to an emergency. Many other programs will touch on a variety of topics but exclude others. This program does well with informing FM professionals on every topic they may encounter.
ProFM has equipped me to better understand my strong points and fortify my weaknesses. Having and maintaining the ProFM designation will keep me relevant and up to speed with the ever-changing FM landscape. And it will facilitate continued success of our FM organization to maintain alignment with our association’s collective mission.
FMs can only dedicate a limited amount of time and funding to training and credentials. ProFM covers all the subject matter of up to 10 other FM credentials combined.
I am honoured and satisfied with the program. I have been in the FM industry for the almost 20 years and I am glad to have chosen ProFM for my professional credential. It has not only made and confirmed my professionalism, but has certainly improved positively my status and career. The program is easy to understand with a lot of support through reading and reference materials. Its cost and flexibility work well with full time worker and husband/father like me. Great service by the ProFM team!
ProFM is a great exercise to gain a valuable credential. The printed study guides and online systems were comprehensive and valuable. The ProFM program is extremely worthwhile for both new and experienced FMs.
ProFM is a great whether you are just getting into Facilities Management or a seasoned veteran. The information is relevant for today’s industry and easy to understand and apply in the field.
While I had to study a lot, the program is well designed for working FMs, and capitalizes on what you already know while helping you focus on areas where you may need to learn more. I would absolutely recommend other FMs complete the ProFM study course and testing. You will discover what you don’t know and that is often more valuable in advancing your career.
Whether you are in private or government sector employment, if you want to gain a competitive edge as a facility manager, I highly recommend that you become a ProFM! It is an incredibly comprehensive and well put together training program and it’s almost eerie how applicable everything I learned is to my work every day. ProFM has already helped me implement cost effective, sustainable strategies that have benefited our entire organization.
