Credential Badges

Digital Credential Badges

As part of ​the world-class suite of IFMA credentials, we offer digital badges, which are web-enabled, shareable and verifiable versions of professional development accomplishments.

We partner with Credly, a top digital badging company, to provide this service through their platform, Acclaim.

Digital badges are currently available to professionals who have earned the Certified Facility Manager® (CFM®) and Retired CFM® (RCFM®). We’re also working to enable digital badges for other IFMA credentials, IFMA Foundation Accredited Degree Program graduates and more in 2019.
