The International Facility Management Association (IFMA) has earned reaccreditation status from the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET). IACET Accredited Providers are the only organizations approved to offer IACET Continuing Education Units (CEUs). The accreditation period extends for five years, and includes all programs offered or created during that time. IFMA originally received accreditation as a provider of IACET CEUs in June 2008.
“We are pleased to reaccredit IFMA as an Accredited Provider,” stated Peter Finn, President of IACET and the Director of Learning and Development for the Society of Women Engineers in Chicago, Illinois, USA. Finn added, “IFMA joins nearly 500 organizations around the globe that have had their programs vetted by third-party experts in continuing education thereby ensuring the highest possible standards are met.”
IFMA’s CEU programming for facility management (FM) professionals, like all of its professional development training including world-class credential programs, is built around 11 core competency areas identified by an in-depth global job task analysis. These topics include: Leadership and strategy, finance and business, project management, operations and maintenance, sustainability, real estate, occupancy and human factors, performance and quality, facility information and technology management, risk management and communication.
To achieve Accredited Provider accreditation, IFMA completed a rigorous application process, including a review by an IACET site visitor, and successfully demonstrated adherence to the ANSI/IACET 1-2018 Standard addressing the design, development, administration and evaluation of its programs. IFMA has pledged continued compliance with the standard and is recognized as offering the highest quality continuing education and training programs.
