Global Job Task Analysis

Be a Part of the FM Voice Globally

IFMA’s Global Job Task Analysis (GJTA) identifies the critical tasks and work activities of the facility management professional, the context in which those tasks and activities are carried out, and the most crucial knowledge and skills required to perform the job successfully.

When completed, the GJTA process will provide a basis for developing exam specifications and curricula that accurately reflect the scope of practice and an understanding of unique regional and industry needs.
