Excellence in Facility Management in Canada

Few if any property/facility management professionals intended on a career in facilities management, so how does one establish credentials once in the field? Associations that provide professional development opportunities can play a significant role in your career development. Studies have shown that those who have worked their way through a professionally designed educational program can provide benefits to their organization resulting in a positive ROI.

  • 98% say BOMI education has helped them or their employees become more efficient.
  • 61% said knowledge gained attending a BOMI course helped them save on their energy costs.
  • 67% said their companies enjoyed a monthly operating expense reduction after taking a BOMI course.

This session will touch upon these benefits and provide a brief overview of BOMI certificates and designations. It will highlight the availability of a selection of our courses in French as well as announce a new interactive five-module course on HVAC Optimization. A graduate of the BOMI program will be on hand to discuss how a BOMI education has benefited their organization. The session will highlight the results of a recent study of graduates and current students noting the career advantage of accessing professional development opportunities.
