Charlotte Chapter of IFMA CFM
The goals of IFMA’s certification program are to assure professional competence, establish standards for professional practice, increase recognition for the profession within business organizations and the community, and influence the future direction of the profession.
IFMA’s designation states that CFM’s are competent facility managers. The exam process and the exam have been designed to assess competence. This is a different process from that of knowledge-based exams, where examinees are compared to each other based on recalling information presented in a course or series of courses. Competencies compare individuals to standards that define the practice of facility management. This means that if everyone who takes the exam is competent, 100 percent will pass. This program recognizes the direction, energy, perseverance and competence of successful facility managers.
