About Fall Symposium Courses

“The quality and relevance of the FMP course material is excellent. The course content, layout and real world application is very pertinent to the work I perform every day.” – Jaret Leah, FMP, Bus.Mgt.Dipl, Site Coordinator Property Management, Facility Management, The City of Calgary

"The knowledge you gain from the SFP will turn into dollars and cents for your organization." -Joe Lampinen, SFP, LEED GA, Green Manufacturing Specialist

Certified Facility Manager Exam Prep

Prepare to earn the most respected certification in FM. Choose the one-day CFM Exam Prep Workshop or the three-day CFM Exam Prep Workshop Plus. Taught by experienced CFMs, both workshops present tools and techniques that can lead to success on the exam.

  • One-day Exam Prep Workshop: Review the methodology of the competency-based exam, practice applying critical thinking skills and discuss the rationales used in practice exam questions.
  • Three-day Workshop Plus: Includes valuable FM Learning System materials addressing two competency areas: Technology and Real Estate & Property Management. Deepen your understanding of these key areas, review terms and definitions, and reference information well after the exam. Developed by IFMA and a team of subject matter experts, the FM Learning System covers the updated facility management body of knowledge.

“Certification has brought me increased recognition by both senior management and my peers. It’s the best thing I've done for my career in a long time." -Patricia A. Holden, CFM, Associate Director, Facilities Management, Quintiles Inc., San Diego, Calif.
