Facilities Management Programs at MVCC

A college degree, especially in your chosen field, can enhance your credentials like few other honors. As a result of SFMI's partnership with Mohawk Valley Community College (MVCC), you can earn your associate degree or technical certificate in school facilities management – right from the comfort of your home or office.

Developed by MVCC, SFMI and SBGA, these online programs are designed to sharpen the skills of current directors and prepare future directors for careers in facilities management.

Graduates will be prepared to manage and lead change in all aspects of the field: facility operations and maintenance, public health and safety, school budgeting and more. You can choose from two options: the School Facilities Management Certificate or the Associate Degree in Facilities Management.

Among The Benefits:

• You complete MVCC courses online – no classroom to find, no set time to attend class. You'll contact your professors primarily by email.

• MVCC may accept credit for college courses you've already completed – and for life experience.

• The courses completed for both programs may be applied toward a SUNY bachelor's degree.

• If you have questions regarding admissions, please call 315.792.5400. Identify yourself as a potential School Facilities Management student and ask to be connected with Phil Benson.
