RPA Designation Program

BOMI International's RPA® designation program serves the educational needs of both third-party property managers and corporate property managers. By familiarizing you with the many aspects of operating a commercial building, the RPA designation program helps you integrate these issues into the broader task of property management.  You'll gain the insight and knowledge necessary to analyze a building in its entirety: building systems design, operation, and maintenance; commercial real estate law; investment and finance; risk management and insurance; leasing and marketing; asset management; environmental health and safety; and more.  The RPA program teaches you to maximize a building's net income while minimizing risks, thereby enhancing your standing in the industry and positioning you for long-term success.

FMA Designation Program

BOMI International’s FMA® designation program enhances your career by making you a more effective, knowledgeable facilities professional, thus positioning you as a key strategic professional within your organization. This program teaches you to manage facilities in a way that best supports staff and fits into the organization’s overall objectives. You’ll develop valuable skills in strategic planning, project management, corporate finance, capital investment, and physical asset management. You’ll also learn about new facilities technologies, environmental health and worker safety, and other timely issues. Whether you’re a new or experienced facilities manager, or someone in a related profession who will benefit from knowing how to create a quality work environment that maximizes productivity, the FMA program is right for you.
