There are no fees for a provider to align their training to the FBPTA Competency Model. The decision to align a training is based solely on GSA or other agencies' interest in the training and available review budget. A third-party contractor will be tasked by GSA to review training submissions.

Training Review Process

You can become an FBPTA aligned training provider through the following process to review training for alignment with the FBPTA core competencies. First, the training provider prepares a Submission Template explaining the learning objectives and course materials that apply to each FBPTA performance. A third-party contractor with expertise in facility management, energy management and building operations, reviews the submission and determines if the submission addresses each performance fully, partially or not at all. FMI works with the provider to understand and clarify the submission as needed. The scoring sheets for the training are then published on SFTool.gov for public comment. Training added to the curriculum through this process are considered “FBPTA-Aligned” and address the performances indicated on the Core Competencies and Recommended Curriculum, which is updated annually.

From a provider's point of view - GSA approves the alignment and sends a letter stating the training is FBPTA-Aligned and providing rules of engagement on how to advertise it.

From a student's point of view – The aligned training will be available on the AFM toolopens in new window for the student to add it to the professional development plan to show progress in meeting required competencies are associated with their positions.
