Leadership Academy

APPA’s Leadership Academy prepares educational facilities professionals to become effective leaders with the skills to create thriving cultures of trust and lifelong learning that they can take back to their institutions. A comprehensive course for educational facilities professionals, the Academy touches on all aspects of successful FM leadership skills: individual, interpersonal, managerial, and organizational.

Core Curriculum

Available both in-person and virtual programming, this interactive learning experience is based on proven leadership development solutions. Facilities professionals progress through four levels of instruction:

  1. Individual Effectiveness Skills (Level I)
  2. Interpersonal Effectiveness Skills (Level II)
  3. Managerial Effectiveness Skills (Level III)
  4. Organizational Effectiveness Skills (Level IV)

After the course is completed, the student receives a certificate of completion and is eligible to receive continuing education units (CEUs).
