Hello RFMA Members,

Do you know everything needed to be a great restaurant facility professional? Probably not as the requirements for a facility professional continue to increase. Today, the scope of job functions is wide and varied. An individual must be competent in numerous areas. This is exactly why going thru the educational modules and obtaining a CRFP (Certified Restaurant Facility Professional) designation is so important in our industry. Achieving this will better equip you for making the right decisions throughout your work life and set you apart from your peers by demonstrating your expertise the restaurant facility industry. Currently RFMA is running a special discount thru December 31st on taking the CRFP exam by dropping the price by $100. The prerequisite, in general, for taking the exam requires 3-5 years of restaurant facility experience, knowledge of all aspects of facility management, and a commitment to advancement of the restaurant facility management industry. To prepare, check out the CRFP Prep course on the RFMA website consisting of fourteen (14) topic areas (modules) to review. They are:

- Site Work

- Building

- Kitchen Equipment


- Electrical Systems

- Plumbing Systems

- Preventative Maintenance

- Disaster Management

- Energy Management

- Financial Planning

- Financial Management

- Project Management

- Property Management

- Codes & Guidelines

The modules are free to RFMA members and are online for self training with no time constraints. Each has a pre-test, the learning material, and a post-test. They take anywhere from 15-45 minutes to complete and will prepare you for the CRFP exam. The modules provide valuable information that will benefit you in your day to day decision making activities. I highly recommend this great learning tool as it will only help in your professional development. How about a great way to finish off 2019 in your professional development?

So, are you up for it? Are your ready to elevate yourself in our industry? Challenge yourself. You will be better qualified in restaurant facility maintenance. Feel free to contact me to discuss further.

Dover and out.
