Each of the following forums contain links to FMI's scoring sheets for individual courses and discussion threads to capture your comments. To review our results, simply follow the link provided to the course. The initial proposals for the courses were provided by the course providers. Only those competencies and performances sought by them were reviewed. Our assessment is provided in the column titled "Based on technical review of learning objectives and skills, does this resource map to the performance criteria?" Our assessment is color-coded to indicate one of three decisions: 1) Green - the course aligns completely with the performance referenced; 2) Yellow - the course is partially aligned as described in the comment; and, 3) Red - the course does not align with the performance referenced. While other information is provided on the forms for context, your comments should be limited to the color-coded assessment. Comments should relate only to the alignment of the training resource with the FBPTA core competencies. GSA does not seek comments related to the quality of the courses as this feedback is gathered from the federal agencies which identify the courses as a priority and end-user comments received through the Core Competency Web Tool. To provide comments, either provide them in the discussion thread, or, send an email to AskFMI@gsa.gov. To use the discussion thread you must create a login ID for FMI.gov (see "login" in the upper right hand corner above). Comments through other avenues will not be accepted.GSA will log and respond to all comments which might materially change our review i.e. the information is new or contradicts information provided by the resource provider. Note: In many cases, partial alignment of a performance will be interpreted as sufficient for specific personnel. The GSA Skills Assessment Web Tool will, for example, show full aligment for performances marked as partial under the Competency Area "Performance of Facility Operations and Maintenance" for staff in Facility Management roles. These courses do not give students the "ability" to perform the task as a building operator would need. They do, however, provide an awareness and background in these topics sufficient for a facility manager.

BOMI provides a number of courses which contribute toward the Facility Management Administrator and Real Property Administrator designations. Courses presented cover both a breadth of topics (i.e. Design, Operation, and Maintenance of Building Systems and Fundamentals of Real Property Administration) and individual topics at a greater depth (i.e. Refrigeration and Environmental Health and Safety). Designations are earned when required courses and professional experience are completed and documented.

The International Facility Management Association provides a number of individual courses, certificates and certifications aimed primarily at the Facility Management role. This comment thread seeks comments on the courses leading to the Facility Management Professional (FMP), Essentials of FM-OM Course, Sustainable Facilities Professional (SFP) and Certified Facility Manager (CFM) credenials. Note that there are four courses aligned with the Facility Management Professional (FMP). Once these courses have been successfully completed an individual gains the FMP credential. The essentials of FM-OM is considered an introductory course.

These courses, developed on behalf of the Federal Energy Management Program, are provided free of charge to all both in and out of the federal government. The courses are accredited under IACET and are accepted for continuous education credit by AIA and GBCI. The FMI proposes to accept them as providing foundational knowledge or general awareness of FBPTA requirements wherever alignment is noted. Advanced training will be required for career advancement.
