The Certified Educational Facilities Professional credential (CEFP) is a certification designed for both aspiring and existing educational facilities professionals with eight years of combined education and professional facilities management experience. Earning the CEFP demonstrates that you have a mastery of professional expertise and is a mark of superior proficiency in the core competencies for education facilities professionals.

The purpose of APPA’s certification program is to:

  • Assure educational institutions of the quality of their facilities management professionals
  • Drive professional development
  • Establish standards for professional performance in educational facilities management

The Certified Educational Facilities Professional (CEFP) designation provides a professional credentialing continuum for the educational facilities professional.

To maintain the CEFP credential, one must demonstrate their commitment to on-going professional development and continuing leadership by means of a recertification process every four (4) years. The process utilizes a point system that assigns recertification credits for participation in professional development programs, as well as APPA and non-APPA volunteer leadership and service in support of the educational facilities profession. To learn more about the recertification process visit our Recertification page.

The APPA Credentialing Course is a 90 day (13 week) online course designed to help you prepare for the Certified Educational Facilities Professional (CEFP) with peers across APPA’s six (6) regions.
