The community college in Culver City will also launch its new Facilities Management Certificate Program in partnership with the International Facilities Management Association (IFMA) Foundation. By 2032, 50 percent of the existing facility management workforce will have retired, explained Diane Levine, Executive Director with the International Facilities Management Association (IFMA) Foundation. “There is a tremendous need for skilled facilities managers.” She continued, “In 2016 there were 3,200 facilities manager job openings in Southern California with as few as 30 individuals who had completed formal training for the available positions.”
