The Massachusetts Facilities Administrator’s Association recognized the need for a credentialing process to validate the professional expertise that members possess. The association established the certification program for Certified Facility Administrator (CFA) to allow members to receive the professional recognition they deserve for their experience, education, licensure and responsibility which they exercise on a daily basis.


Facilities management has had a long history of being a unique field. It is a diverse and varied field which includes many of the established management titles with a mix of engineering, personnel, legal, purchasing, accounting and applications functions. The CFA certification will validate your experience in these fields and other facility maintenance specialties to establish a level of professional competence in the facilities management role.
