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®). In March 2019, we’ll enable digital badges for Facility Management Professional™ (FMP®) and Sustainability Facility Professional® (SFP®) credential holders. We’re also exploring opportunities for additional badges in the future, such as recognition for graduates of IFMA Foundation Accredited Degree Programs.
