The Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) provides live and on-demand training to foster and maintain a high-performance workforce that constructs, operates, and maintains energy-efficient and cost-effective federal facilities.
FEMP is accredited by the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET) and awards IACET continuing education units (CEUs) upon the successful completion of select courses. Visit the WBDG to find FEMP courses offering IACET CEUs.
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).
