Our Story, Your Future

Join Our Award Winning Student Chapter!

Our Student Chapter

We are the first IFMA degree program in the state of California! We’re here to provide our students with the means necessary for a successful career!  

Did you know that the median annual salary for a Facility Manager is $91,908?

Launch into a successful career with Chaffey College's new Facilities Management (FM) Associates Degree program!

In 2016, there were 3,200 Facilities Management job openings in Southern California.

Only an estimated 30 individuals completed formal training programs.

In response, the FM Talent Pipeline was created by the IFMA Foundation and California Community Colleges to tackle the supply/demand skills gap for employers.

World Workplace facilitates idea-sharing and knowledge-exchange between all professionals who support the work environment.
