Jacob Shalack earns Certified Educational Facilities Professional credential

UGAMI is proud to announce that Jacob Shalack has earned the Certified Educational Facilities Professional (CEFP) credential from APPA. The CEFP credential recognizes leaders in educational facilities management and is a way to validate the unique knowledge and competency required of an accomplished professional in the educational facilities field.

Jacob wears two hats at UGAMI.  He splits his time between being UGAMI’s  Assistant Director for Operations and the Site Manager for the Georgia Coastal Ecosystems LTER.  Many of UGAMI’s users only know Jacob in one of these capacities and have no idea that he has another side to his professional life.

By acquiring the core knowledge necessary to obtain the CEFP, Jacob is helping to ensure the long-term stewardship of UGAMI. 

Congratulations, Jacob!
