SAFMA offers four accredited professional designations. These not only give facilities management professionals credibility and acknowledge experience; they also provide a measure of accountability as each designated professional must sign a code of conduct. These designations range from Certified Facilities Practitioner through to Accredited Facilities Professional. It is important to note that even the highest designation can be achieved through recognition of prior learning and experience, and not only through a combination of formal qualifications and experience, making a professional designation accessible to anyone in the facilities management industry, regardless of age, gender, or race.
