IFMA, RICS launch one-stop FM online training platform

Dec. 12, 2016
IFMA, in collaboration with the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), has launched an exciting new platform that jointly hosts all IFMA and RICS facility management (FM) training materials on a single, easy-to-use website. The site,, offers convenient access to a robust catalogue of FM continuing education resources.

Among the benefits of the landmark IFMA-RICS collaboration is the authority of the combined educational and professional development materials offered by the two top FM and built environment organizations in the world. Site highlights include the popular Essentials of Facility Management series and preparation materials for the Certified Facility Manager® (CFM®) certification, as well as video learning.

Not only are these resources growing in global prestige with more employers asking for proof of skill and experience, but with online education modules, workshops and webinars, earning and maintaining professional recognition is easier than ever before. In addition, the user-friendly platform allows students to drill down to see the details of their progress in each course, and learning materials can be purchased in four currencies (USD, CAD, GBP and EUR).

A world-class FM training program is a key part of how IFMA and RICS are enabling the FM industry to accomplish global unification and increased representation as all stages of the building life cycle. For more information on the IFMA-RICS collaboration, visit
