*The FMP is a strategic certification for the FCS service line as it allows us to demonstrate our facility management knowledge and capabilities to our clients and potential clients. The FMP credential is offered by IFMA and is a knowledge-based credential for FM professionals and industry suppliers looking to increase their depth-of-knowledge in the core FM topics deemed critical by employers. Often taking several months to complete, the course consists of four modules, each with their own exams. Individuals must successfully pass all four exams to earn the FMP.
