Villanova University's College of Professional Studies offers courses and certifications that build expertise and may advance the careers of facility managers and sustainability facility managers in any industry. With two courses offered intermittently throughout the year, professionals have the opportunity to earn industry recognized designations upon completion of each course. Designations include IFMA’s Facility Management Professional® (FMP®) — the must-have credential for facility management (FM) professionals and industry suppliers looking to increase their depth-of-knowledge in the core FM topics deemed critical by employers, and IFMA’s Sustainability Facility Professional® (SFP) — the leading credential for the development of sustainable FM strategies.
By enrolling in this course, you’ll benefit from:
Not only will you enhance your FM knowledge and skills, and qualify for the FMP credential (upon successful completion of the four online final assessments), course materials are provided and will serve as an ongoing reference for facility management practices. The course investment includes all course materials and FMP final assessments, but does not cover the FMP application fee.
Sustainability is broader and more significant than complying with a building rating system; it is a commitment to improving the facility's impact on the environment and people—not just at one point in time but continually.
IFMA’s Sustainability Facility Professional® (SFP) is the leading credential for the development of sustainable FM strategies. This globally-recognized credential delivers innovative ideas and training to help you advance your career.
This course is based upon and includes the IFMA SFP Credential Program® materials. The curriculum was developed by a team of global industry experts to provide a complete picture of how SFPs can improve the sustainability of their facilities in the eight major categories of sustainability as defined by IFMA: energy, water, materials and resources, workplace management, indoor environmental quality, quality of services, waste, and site impact. Course materials include:
Not only will you enhance your sustainability FM knowledge and skills, and qualify for the SFP credential (upon successful completion of the three final SFP assessments), the materials will serve as an ongoing reference. The course investment includes all course materials and SFP final assessments, but does not cover the SFP application fee.
This program is designed for all FM and like-minded professionals with an interest in sustainable practices. It is ideal for:
The IFMA SFP® Credential Program is the only tool you’ll need to earn your SFP® credential. This interactive program will teach the knowledge, skills and tools needed to develop sustainable facility management practices and also includes the final SFP assessments required to earn the SFP credential.
The SFP program is made up of three focus areas:
The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) has approved the IFMA SFP Credential Program for Credential Maintenance. This is great news for LEED® Professionals who can now earn the SFP credential and 70 general CE hours when they successfully complete the SFP program!
