The facilities profession is constantly changing; it is critical to keep abreast of current trends, technological advancements, best practices and methods to reduce costs and improve operations on campus. As a CEFP recipient, you have taken the first important step of demonstrating your competence in your field. You have earned the right to use our trademarked acronym, CEFP, with your name. C.E.F.P. are not just letters after your name; they are a recognized sign of professional excellence.
As important as earning your certification, the next step is equally important: Recertification.
Recertification validates your commitment to the profession, lifelong competency and professional development. When you recertify, you ensure your peers, employer and the public continue to see that you are dedicated to the profession and committed to the gold standards that the CEFP represents.
In order to maintain your hard-earned credential, we require that you re-certify every four (4) years by demonstrating that you have gained additional knowledge. There are many ways you can do this. We have outlined some of the activities that qualify on the Qualifying Activities page to your left.
If you do not renew your CEFP before your renewal date, your certification will expire and you will lose the right to use CEFP after your name. We will remove your name from our website listing, and you will have to purchase the course again and pass the exam to retain the CEFP credential.
