Fromberg Earns Certified Educational Facility Planner Designation

Washington, DC (November 21, 2013)

Randall E. Fromberg, AIA, President of Austin architecture firm Fromberg Associates, recently received the Certified Educational Facility Planner (CEFP) designation, a mark of excellence developed to reflect the knowledge, skills and abilities of a competent educational facility planner. The CEFP credential was designed to elevate professional standards, enhance individual performance and identify those in the educational environment industry who demonstrate the knowledge essential to the practice of educational facility planning.

The Council of Educational Facility Planners (CEFPI), creator of the CEFP credential, observed that “An individual who has been certified by CEFPI has achieved the highest qualification in our profession. Clients can appoint CEFPs with confidence that they have been examined for competence by our association.”

After meeting eligibility requirements and submitting an application, CEFP candidates must pass a rigorous CEFP exam. Once a candidate has earned the credential, they must maintain it by fulfilling certification renewal requirements every three years, in addition to maintaining minimum continuing education units each year.

As of today, there are 91 professionals with the CEFP and The Council looks forward to the next test in December where a number of candidates will be taking the exam.

The Council of Educational Facility Planners International (CEFPI) is the only professional organization whose principal purpose is improving the places where children learn. CEFPI embraces a diverse group of professionals with one single goal – building healthy, safe, high performance and sustainable learning environments that enhance student and teacher performance and support culture and community vitality.
