If you employ a number of facilities management professionals your employees can
become members of the Institute, hold designatory letters to demonstrate their
experience and knowledge, and access all the benefits of individual membership
through a Group Membership scheme. As an employer you become a ‘BIFM Investor in FM Professional Development’ which includes access to a range of services to support them in their career and professional development.

The BIFM qualifications have been designed for FM practitioners to cover the knowledge, skills and competences required of individuals at every stage of their career. Employers can utilise these to develop their teams and improve organisational effectiveness.

The qualifications have been designed to be flexible so they can be customised to suit both the learner’s and the employer’s business needs. They cover real need-to-know FM knowledge, skills and competence and all have clearly stated learning outcomes and assessment criteria.
