Certified Healthcare Facility Manager

  CHFM status provides both internal and external rewards. CHFMs enjoy the pride of recognition of being among the elite in a critical field of healthcare.  And CHFM is a premier credential based on a sound assessment that provides distinction in an increasingly competitive marketplace.

The CHFM Program has three components:

  • Eligibility requirements that are a blend of education and experience and profile the individual who is likely to be successful on the Certification Examination
  • A 110-item multiple-choice Certification Examination that tests tasks that are performed regularly in practice and are considered important to competent practice; and
  • A renewal requirement. Certification is valid for three years at which time it must be renewed through retaking and passing the Certification Examination or documenting 45 contact hours of continuing professional education.
