IFMA Foundation Announces the IFMA Facility Management Graduate (FMG) Designation and Digital Badge
The International Facility Management Association (IFMA) Foundation is announcing the IFMA Facility Management Graduate (FMG) Designation and Digital Badge. “The new IFMA Foundation FMG designation gives graduates of FM Accredited Degree Programs in good standing a special recognition for their completion of a post-secondary program in facility management” said Graham Tier, IFMA Global Chair. “Most importantly, IFMA and the IFMA Foundation recognize the specific qualifications and skills that graduates of the FM Accredited Degree Programs possess.”
As the global FM accrediting organization, the IFMA Foundation has increased its focus on filling the gap in the professional FM workforce through its Global Workforce Initiative, which includes increasing the number of FM Accredited Degree Programs throughout the world, providing scholarships to students, as well as expanding the awareness of the FM profession. “This designation is important to facility management professionals to be able to demonstrate their knowledge and skills to employers. Earning the FMG designation and digital badge are a significant way to present that value” said Nancy Sanquist, IFMA Foundation Chair.
Digital FMG badges are currently available to graduates of the Facility Management Accredited Degree Program free of charge. Degree holders can apply for their badge with IFMA by filling out a form online at www.ifma.org/my-account/camp
