Connex is proud to partner with the Professional Facility Management Institute (ProFMI), the founding body and administrator of the ProFM credential. The partnership strengthens the Connex facility management credential program.
After researching and vetting several different Facilities Management certification programs, it was determined ProFM was the best choice for all Connex members as they continue their efforts to elevate their knowledge and reinforce their credibility.
ProFM defines global FM standards and provides facility professionals with the knowledge and skills that have evolved beyond traditional FM responsibilities. The ProFM credential is:

Global: It enhances industry knowledge and builds practical skills to impact facility performance.
