What are FEDSAT and Accelerate FM ?

Federal Buildings Personnel Training Act

The Federal Buildings Personnel Training Act (FBPTA) of 2010 requires federal personnel that perform facility management, building operations, and energy management roles and provide building operations and maintenance services to demonstrate competencies necessary to effectively manage government facilities.

Get FBPTA Credit

In accordance with the FBPTA, the General Services Administration developed the core competencies "for personnel performing building operations and maintenance, energy management, sustainability, water efficiency, safety (including electrical safety), building performance measures, and design functions."

FEMP will continue to develop training courses that support the FBPTA. In the meantime, GSA recommends a myriad of FEMP courses and seminars that fulfill FBPTA requirements through the Facilities Management Institute (FMI).

You can also use the FEMP Training Catalog Advanced Search to find courses that cover select GSA competencies.

To get credit for FBPTA-compliant courses, create an AccelerateFM account. For more information, visit the FMI website.
