High-Performance Sustainable Buildings (BOMI-HP) Designation

The BOMI-HP designation is a symbol of high-performance sustainable building management. This  three-course program teaches students how to define, initiate, pay for, complete and obtain a return on investment for sustainable initiatives within all segments of a building or portfolio.

You do not need to have your RPA and/or FMA in order to earn the BOMI-HP designation. The BOMI-HP designation stands alone and is separate from the RPA/FMA.
