IFMA is partnering with the National Fire Protection Association to offer its members training and resources that enhance the safety and performance of facilities and facility professionals globally.

Through this collaboration, IFMA members will have access to NFPA’s training and certification programs, as well as knowledge on fire prevention, wildfire preparedness, electrical safety, hazardous materials and community risk reduction. NFPA members will also benefit from the collaboration through discounted courses that expand the understanding of core facility management concepts and competencies.

“Facility managers are the unsung heroes of fire and life safety, operating at the heart of the NFPA Fire & Life Safety Ecosystem,” said Mike Brunzell, vice president of global business development for NFPA. “Through this collaboration, IFMA members will gain access to unparalleled training, certifications and resources from NFPA, empowering them to further safeguard buildings and the individuals who inhabit them. Together, we’re strengthening our goal of advancing safety and preventing harm from fire, electrical and related hazards around the world.”

IFMA established its strategic partner program in 2021 to provide built environment professionals with a single source of interdisciplinary skill-building training offered by the industry’s most well-respected and influential organizations. The program offers specialized training opportunities that address a range of mission-critical roles and cover the entire operational life cycle of the built environment.

“NFPA joins IFMA and 14 other esteemed organizations in sharing essential training and expert knowledge relevant to built environment practices and priorities,” said IFMA President and CEO Don Gilpin. “We’re proud to work together with NFPA to provide all those responsible for ensuring the safety of people and organizational assets – from facility management and wider building professionals to first responders – with access to top training solutions and informational resources geared toward creating and sustaining facility excellence.”
