What is BOMI?
The Building Owners and Managers Institute International (BOMI) was founded in 1970 and is known for its industry-standard designations: Real Property Administrator (RPA®), Facilities Management Administrator (FMA®) , Systems Maintenance Administrator (SMA®) and Systems Maintenance Technician (SMT ®). This organization is a separate entity and should not be confused with the Building Owners and Managers Association International (BOMA). BOMI has educated more than 80,000 people and more than 20,000 individuals hold one or more of the BOMI designations.

BOMA Baltimore partners with BOMI to offer 15-week classroom courses for RPA® or FMA® twice a year in the Baltimore area. Classes usually begin in September and February, so please check the calendar. In addition, courses may be taken through the following study methods: self-study, accelerated review (condensed to classes of one week or less), self-study online or instructor-led online. Information on these alternate study methods is available via the BOMI International web site.
Earn Your Mark of Distinction
Employers value education and look for educated employees. By increasing your knowledge and skills through a BOMI designation, you will make yourself a top choice in an employer's search for the best and brightest. BOMI International offers four professional designations within the commercial real estate industry — RPA® (the Real Property Administrator), FMA® (the Facilities Management Administrator), SMA® (the Systems Maintenance Administrator), or SMT ®(the Systems Maintenance Technician).
The RPA® designation program serves the educational needs of both third-party property managers and corporate property managers. By familiarizing you with the many aspects of operating a commercial building, the RPA® designation program helps you integrate these issues into the broader task of property management. You'll gain the insight and knowledge necessary to analyze a building in its entirety: building systems design, operation, and maintenance; commercial real estate law; investment and finance; risk management and insurance; leasing and marketing; asset management; environmental health and safety; and more. The RPA® program teaches you to maximize a building’s net income while minimizing risks, thereby enhancing your standing in the industry and positioning you for long-term success.

RPA® Experience Requirements:
The FMA® designation program enhances your career by making you a more effective, knowledgeable facilities professional, thus positioning you as a key strategic professional within your organization. This program teaches you to manage facilities in a way that best supports staff and fits into the organization’s overall objectives. You’ll develop valuable skills in strategic planning, project management, corporate finance, capital investment, and physical asset management. You’ll also learn about new facilities technologies, environmental health and worker safety, and other timely issues. Whether you’re a new or experienced facilities manager, or someone in a related profession who will benefit from knowing how to create a quality work environment that maximizes productivity, the FMA® program is right for you.
The SMT® and SMA® designation programs help you increase the operating effectiveness of your building and make you more valuable to your organization. Designed to meet the needs of hands-on technicians and building engineers, the SMT and SMA programs offer instruction in technologies and trends in the maintenance field that show you how to manage energy-efficient, environmentally sound, cost-effective building systems. Both SMT and SMA courses detail specific operating systems, while the SMA program includes additional courses covering environmental issues, administration, and building design and maintenance.
