Professional Designations

Throughout the commercial property industry, a BOMI Institute designation is recognized as a mark of distinction; an emblem of achievement backed by the institute’s more than 40 years of excellence in developing and offering advanced education programs. And whichever of the four professional designations you pursue–the Real Property Administrator (RPA); the Facilities Management Administrator (FMA); the Systems Maintenance Technician (SMT); or the Systems Maintenance Administrator (SMA)–you can be assured you will receive field-proven, time-tested courses that will help you meet the demands of an increasingly complex profession with confidence and success. Throughout the year, BOMA Georgia will provide educational courses that qualify for credit toward each of these designations. Real Property Administrator – RPA The Real Property Administrator designation program serves the educational needs of both third-party property managers and corporate property managers. It covers every aspect of property management, from the basics of building design, operation and maintenance, to the specialized areas of commercial property law and risk management, marketing, and asset management. Through this program, property managers learn to maximize the net income of any property, be it one building or an entire portfolio. Facilities Management Administrator – FMA The Facilities Management Administrator designation program benefits new and experienced facilities professionals alike. Through the in-depth coverage of critical-needs topics, including planning and project management, facilities technologies, finance and investment, and environmental health and worker safety, the FMA program helps position facilities managers as key strategic contributors within their organizations. Systems Maintenance Technician – SMT The Systems Maintenance Technician designation program provides today’s technicians with the skills that will help them stand out as top performers, who can raise a building’s efficiency while reducing operating costs. The SMT program covers every major building operating system, from HVAC to plumbing to electrical and overall control systems.

Systems Maintenance Administrator – SMA The Systems Maintenance Administrator program further distinguishes professionals with the advanced knowledge required to run a sound, efficient, cost-effective maintenance department. Building on the SMT designation with additional courses on administration, energy management, and environmental health and safety issues, the SMA program helps prepare maintenance professionals for a career in facilities management. What Can A Designation Do For You? Useful knowledge: That is the hallmark of a BOMI designation. A BOMI designation helps you to understand your job better, to be more productive and to get noticed. It imparts the critical skills you need to grow professionally and personally. BOMI designations provide you with the educational foundation on which to continue to build your current career or branch out into other areas of the real property industry. Whether you complete a single course or a full designation program, you will get a true feeling of accomplishment and the satisfaction of knowing that you have just empowered yourself with the skills and understanding that can better your career throughout your life. Enhance Your Designation! If you’ve already earned a RPA or FMA designation, you can also earn an enhanced RPA|HP or FMA|HP designation. Simply complete all three courses in BOMI’s new High-Performance program. See the ad above and the certificate course details on page 7. Statistics to Consider • 98 percent of BOMI International graduates said that BOMI International courses have enabled themselves or their employees to be more efficient. • 94 percent of graduates who have earned a BOMI International designation and/or certificate agree that they have helped better position their corporation or organization for success. • 68 percent of graduates have experienced a decrease in monthly operating expenses with energy consumption being the number one cost savings.
