The International Facility Management Association (IFMA) has been reaccredited by the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET) to offer IACET Continuing Education Units (CEUs). IACET Accredited Providers are the only organizations that are approved to offer IACET CEUs. The accreditation period is extended for five years, and includes all programs offered or created during that time. IFMA was originally accredited as a provider IACET CEUs in June 2008.
“We are pleased to reaccredit IFMA as an Accredited Provider,” said Peter Finn, president of IACET and the Director of Learning and Development for the Society of Women Engineers in Chicago, Illinois, in a press release. “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 is built around 11 core competency areas that were selected following 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.
In order to achieve Accredited Provider accreditation, IFMA completed an application process that included 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.
