Certified Educational Facilities Professional (CEFP)

official CEFP logo on white background with triangles

As the facilities profession becomes more complex, it’s critical to demonstrate your well-rounded knowledge of all the systems that make your campus an efficient place to learn, live and work.

Today’s facilities professionals face a variety of challenges, such as:
• Aging infrastructure of buildings and utilities
• Expanding workload and expectations
• Reduced resources and skills gaps
• Utilizing space more efficiently

APPA’s CEFP certification 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.

Professional certification ensures that you are well equipped to meet these challenges and demonstrates your commitment to lifelong learning.

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 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.
