 IFMA’s CFM Exam Prep Workshop

The CFM Exam covers the broad range of facility management duties among the eleven (11) competencies of FM. The CFM Exam Prep Workshop focuses on tools that can lead to success on the exam, techniques to perceive situations, and the importance of maintaining the right perspective.

The East Bay Chapter of IFMA is offering three options for participating in the CFM Exam Preparation workshop. They are designed to assist facility professionals seeking certification with preparation for the CFM (competency-based) examination. The instructor for these workshops is Jon E. Martens, a Certified Facility Manager with many years of facility management experience and inspires participants’ confidence in their ability to successfully complete the examination, thereby earning the distinction and privilege of becoming a CFM.

 CFM Exam participants are expected to have, or otherwise obtain the necessary knowledge (combined with experience) of the competencies that they will be tested on the CFM Exam. This workshop provides individual flexibility for each attendee to decide what level and amounts of FM knowledge they need when attending this workshop(s). These options allow each individual to customize their approach to taking the exam!
