The FM skills gap is real. Our team of experts can help ensure you’re prepared for any FM challenge thrown your way.

New and more complex demands present themselves on almost a daily basis, with FM roles expanding past traditional duties to include strategic business skills, asset management and more. On top of that, 91% of employers say there’s a gap between the skills and knowledge their team has and what they need to excel. So, how can you fill your gaps and make an impact on your career and your organization?

This is where our ProFM Credential Program course comes in. Our expert instructor will guide you through the entire ProFM Body of Knowledge, which includes 19 functional knowledge areas and 5 cross-functional competencies, while helping prepare you for success on the embedded ProFM Credential Final Assessment. Once completed, you’ll have the confidence to tackle any FM challenge thrown your way and gain the recognition you deserve when you add “ProFM” after your name.
