The following online tools and materials will be provided to help participants throughout the program:


Each participant will receive a custom schedule with suggested completion dates for material and assignments/projects. This schedule is based on an average of previous participants’ experiences. A single FM Certificate varies in length, but is generally completed in 4-6 weeks (see the course catalog for more details).  The estimated time to complete the full FM Certificate Program is 12-18 months. For example, if a participant starts the program on January 1, 2018, the anticipated completion date for all 11 courses according to the schedule would be May 6, 2019.


All materials and books are included within the course package.  We will ship participants a course package that contains all of the assignments as well as the course text books. Additionally, upon registration, the participant is granted access to the course online – via an online platform where instructional videos can be found.  

Applied projects

The certificate provides participants with structured projects that help develop a portfolio of working tools and experience with applying best practices to their organization. Each course contains assignments and projects that are specific to the material covered in that course.  The assignments and projects are graded and suggestions for improvement are made to encourage rigor.  It is an expectation that the participant communicates with their organization’s executive team (if currently employed) on progress and shares completed assignments.  Additionally, a progress report card is generated to communicate with participants about progress and grades.

FM handbooks

We provide a comprehensive packet that includes all of the best handbooks that FM’s should have on their bookshelf, including the Facility Manager’s Maintenance Handbook, the Energy Management Handbook, the Facility Manager’s Guide to Information Technology and many more.

1-1 guidance from experts

Each participant will be assigned a mentor to guide them through their selected courses and regularly check in with them to ensure they are making progress.  Mentors are professionals with industry experience and commitment to the FM Certificate Program.  Mentorship is a flagship of the ASU program and has historically contributed to the success of this program overall and participants that have completed their program. Our mentors work regularly with participants to align the program content to their day to day operations, work collaboratively and get immediate answers to their questions.
