Take Your Career Up a Notch.
Get Your ProFM Credential.
Learning is awesome. It keeps us motivated, engaged and builds confidence. Earning your ProFM credential in our live, virtual coach-led class, will help you, your staff and your organization build a path toward professional growth and success.
You Deserve Better
The last year has been hard on everybody. We have all made sacrifices. And now it’s time to start treating ourselves better. To fill our heads with more knowledge. To increase our confidence. To create a reason to ask for a raise. Embrace the opportunity.
What is the ProFM Credential?
The ProFM is an international credential designed to benefit all facility professionals, regardless of career stage, industry, or country. The ProFM Body Of Knowledge defines the 19 functional FM knowledge areas and 5 cross-functional competencies required of today’s facility professional.
What is a Virtual Coach-Led Class?
Coach-led classes offer a mix of high-level focused content, group activities, practice quizzes, and other study preparation tools. The success of this model relies on students' advanced preparation for class (you need to read the text). Hosting the classes live and virtual allows you to incorporate learning into your already busy schedule.
Is a Coach-Led Class right for me?
You can read the ProFM material, take the quizzes and study for the assessments all on your own, but having an instructor helps you to focus on the right material, explain concepts that may be new to you, and help you stay accountable. We will stick with you through the entire process from instruction through completing your assessments. We provide you with test taking strategies, tips, and practice questions all to help you achieve your goal of earning your ProFM credential.
When does the next class begin?
Our next class kicks off on Septenber 22, 2021, with a course introduction of the ProFM content that will be covered, our class approach and a review of the robust online tools and resources available. The course includes seven (7) - 2 .5 hour dynamic and engaging classes. We try to have some fun too.
You could earn yor PROFM before the end of the year!

Starting off 2021 with my ProFM credential thanks to the Virtual 7-Week Coach Led Class led by Alana F. Dunoff and James Myers. When the COVID-19 pandemic began and I moved to full-time remote work, I was looking for productive ways to use my extra time at home. Enrolling in the Virtual Coach-Led Class was the perfect way to learn the ProFM Body of Knowledge with the help of 2 industry experts, as well as engage with other facility professionals from across the country without ever having to leave my home. So glad I took this first step in expanding my facilities knowledge and professional development!

What our students are saying
You made the class fun and interesting. As you can appreciate, the information can be very dry......you both made it interesting and even remotely, I felt involved in the process. I liked the way you divided things up. Listening to one voice for a long time, even pleasant voices like yours, can be tiring. I liked your PowerPoint presentations. I liked your focus on important and useful points and easy ways to remember concepts. Thanks again for everything! I don't know you well but you are two of my favorite course teachers ever!
