Thank you for your interest in FPM-410 (C): FAC-P/PM Refresher for Construction Professionals. We would be happy to bring this course to you onsite at your location. Please fill out the information below and a FAC Academy representative will contact you shortly regarding your request.

Designed for Construction/Facilities professionals who have already earned their FAC-P/PM certification, FPM-410 (C): FAC-P/PM Refresher for Construction Professionals provides a 40-hour continuing education course that both refreshes and extends the experienced FAC-P/PM professional’s skill set.

Course Overview

Educational Focus

Utilizing presentation, discussion, cases, activities, and other hands-on exercises, this 40-hour course has been designed to:

  • Provide a comprehensive review of the concepts, tools, and techniques taught throughout the FAC-P/PM certification curriculum. Students will review and refresh their understanding of the critical Competencies presented throughout their initial FAC-P/PM training programs, specifically as they apply to the Federal Construction/Facilities Program / Project Manager.
  • Further extends the students’ awareness and understanding of important aspects of each of the FAC-P/PM Competencies addressed in the FAC-P/PM curriculum, as they relate to Federal Construction and Facilities acquisition. Please see the course outline below for a list of Construction-specific topics addressed throughout this unique course.

ALTA Learning Methodology

Each of the five class days focuses on one or more of the core FAC-P/PM Competencies. Daily training consists of review / refresh activities, as well as extensive use of hands-on exercises, which allow students to dive into the application of the concepts, tools, and techniques, and to practice them in representative real-world scenarios.

This course represents 40 hours of the FAC-P/PM-certified student’s required 80 hours of continuous learning (CLP) credit, which must be completed every two years.

Who Should Attend

  • Federal Construction/Facilities Project Managers who have earned their FAC-P/PM at any of the three certification levels
