The IFMA-RICS Career Compass is a free planning tool designed to help FM professionals decide which FM credential, qualification or other professional development opportunity is right for your unique career path.

After you answer a few short questions, the Career Compass will suggest a professional development program based on your specific needs and experience. The program(s) we recommend may vary based on any current IFMA credentials or RICS professional qualifications you've earned, the number of years of FM experience and formal education.

You're only a few moments away from mapping your next FM career move.
