PCAPPA PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT SCHOLARSHIPS!

Eric Johnson — Chair, Professional Development

Welcome to the 2018 PCAPPA Scholarship Program.  Last year we gave multiple scholarships to PCAPPA members helping to defray costs for credentialing and educational programs.  With another great conference behind us and the wonderful support of our Business Partners, the PCAPPA Board has approved $20,000 in Scholarships this fiscal year!

A big focus this year will be in CREDENTIALING.  I can’t think of anything more proving of the competency of a professional in our field than being recognized by some of the most accomplished and respected individuals in the Facilities Profession.  CEFP after your name gives credibility. Take advantage of the Certification Program (EFP or CEFP). Becoming a CEFP is very affordable. While APPA is still charging $1,110 and $1,310 for an EFP and CEFP respectively, PCAPPA has worked out a pricing structure that will allow you the complete package for $300 and $400.  Included in the cost is training and preparation and APPA has done a great job preparing members for the test. Don’t miss out on this opportunity.

We are also focusing on bringing educational opportunities local. If you would like to organize a Supervisor’s Toolkit, Leadership Academy, or Drive-in Workshop at your institution, feel free to contact me. This is a great way to educate and train a large number of your employees at less of a cost to your institution.

Below is the program for this fiscal year.  Take advantage and improve yourself!
