CAFM Office Hours: Professional Development with Jim Schmidt, CAFM (May 2024)

May 15 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

The notion of “office hours” traces its roots back to an academic tradition. During this designated time, students were aware that they could visit a professor’s office to seek advice, discuss ideas, tackle challenges, and find solutions with the guidance of an expert.  Now, you have the opportunity to benefit from Office Hours as well!  Rather than meeting with professors, you’ll have the chance to connect with a busy, knowledgeable, well-connected CAFM who has dedicated time specifically for you and your fellow candidates. As you aspire to attain your CAFM, your Office Hours Host is here to assist.

In this session, Jim Schmidt, CAFM will:
• showcase his career journey and experiences
• teach a 10-minute insider lesson on one competency – Professional Development
• discuss 4 practice questions (after you give them a try)
• share his favorite test taking pro-tip
• engage in open dialogue to answer your questions
