UT Austin Offers New Credential Program for Facility Managers

The Professional Development Center (PDC), a component of the Division of Continuing and Innovative Education (CIE) at The University of Texas at Austin, has announced the launch of a new training program in facility management.

The Facility Management Professional (FMP) Credential Program provides the necessary training and examinations to enable facility managers to earn an important FMP credential, a designation that prepares its holders to perform as highly skilled, authoritative facility managers. The FMP credential program is presented by PDC through the International Facility Management Association (IFMA).

The program is made up of six Friday evening courses and six all-day Saturday classes offered on the campus of The University of Texas at Austin over an eleven-week period. Classes begin April 13. The program curriculum consists of:

Operations and Maintenance: Gain a working knowledge of building systems, structure, interiors, exteriors and grounds so that a facility's required systems function efficiently, reliably, safely and in a manner consistent with existing regulations and standards.

Project Management: Project planning and management are core skills in facility management, including planning, scoping, scheduling and evaluating facility projects. Projects studied vary in complexity, duration and financial risk.

Finance and Business Essentials: Get an overview of the financial investments associated with facility management. Also covers service contracts and vendor relations.

Leadership and Strategy Essentials: Develop strategies to successfully execute major projects and initiatives, respond to changing needs, and influence decision makers. Learn to integrate people, place, processes and technology so that facility services align with the entire organization's mission and available resources.
