Arkansas Tech’s Lasey Gains CEFP Credential

Brian Lasey, director of physical plant in the Arkansas Tech University Office of Facilities Management, has earned the Certified Educational Facilities Professional (CEFP) credential from the Association of Physical Plant Administrators (APPA).

According to APPA, the CEFP is “a way to validate the unique knowledge and competency required of an accomplished professional in the educational facilities field.”

Lasey has worked in facilities management at ATU since 2007 and has directed the department’s operations since 2010. He earned a Bachelor of Science degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Missouri at Rolla (now the Missouri University of Science and Technology).

“Credentialing is important, not just to show that you are qualified, but also to show that you have enough dedication in your role to make the effort to earn a professional certification,” said John Morris, chair of APPA’s board for educational facilities professional certification. “Quite often that says more about an individual than the certification itself. APPA’s CEFP is the only certification that demonstrates the recipient’s qualifications for educational facilities management, and also demonstrates their dedication to the educational facilities profession. The APPA CEFP is quickly becoming the industry standard, and I encourage everyone to pursue their CEFP certification. By obtaining and maintaining this credential, recipients will further assure forward-thinking relevancy and mastery of the best management practices related to educational facilities.”
