The Certified Educational Facilities Professional (CEFP) credential represents the highest standards of performance and understanding in educational facilities management.

CEFP is the only facilities credential that focuses on your professional development, while encompassing the full, multi-disciplinary range of educational facilities management principles and practices – from planning, design and construction to daily operations and general management.
