You don't have to be an Engineer to become a Certified Facility Manager. Actually, you don't even have to finish a bachelors degree.
So, what do you need?
Of course, it's useless to pursue the certification of IFMA if you can't even use it so, it's really necessary that you will have an intent to become a Facilities Manager in the future or you want to become a Certified Facility Manager.
If your background is related to project management, business, finance or accounting, engineering, real estate, your application could be accepted.
Actually, we haven't met anyone yet who was rejected when they applied for the CFM exam.
Most of them are accepted to try and proved their qualification to become a Certified Facility Manager.
Although it is relatively easy to apply, the real challenge is in passing the exam.
We mentioned it before, but we will say it again, CFM is not like the exam of FMP.
CFM is pass or fail. If you fail, you'll need to pay and apply again. It wasn't like the FMP where you can just try and try until you hit the correct answer and eventually pass the exam.
CFM exam is multiple choice and most of the questions are situational. Meaning, you'll need to apply all the theory and knowledge you learned while studying the 11 competencies.
We made the 1800 questions and answers practice exam / reviewer to help you measure your knowledge.
Most of the questions there are basic and direct to the point. After answering all the questions, you'll know which competencies you'll need to focus or study more in order to pass the CFM exam.
