James Byrd, manager of the Deacon OneCard Office, has earned the Certified Educational Facilities Professional (CEFP) credential from APPA.
Certification as a Certified Educational Facilities Professional validates the unique knowledge and competency required of an accomplished professional in the educational facilities field. Byrd is the first person to receive this credential at Wake Forest.
“By obtaining the CEFP, it assures the individual and their institution that they have established a thorough and applied understanding of the best management practices related to educational facilities,” said J. Thomas Becker, chair of APPA’s Board of Educational Facilities Professionals Certification.
“The CEFP credential is an exciting new standard for educational stewardship. It represents core knowledge, talent and skill, underscoring accountability and commitment to growth and mastery,” said Lander Medlin, APPA executive vice president. “By earning the CEFP designation, James shows his superior mastery and commitment to his work, his institution and his colleagues.”
