SOFES Certifications

Are you prepared for permanent layoff?



With the wide spread of COVID-19 that has caused the stock market to crash, businesses to close, an unemployment debacle, global isolation, and people to fear being within 6 feet of each other, get your self-taught skills certified by SOFES.  Employment as we have enjoyed may never be the same.

If you have self taught skills that have helped to do repairs in your home or a business join the Society of Facility Engineers and get them certified, NOW!  

The Society of Facility Engineers (SOFES) established in 2010 by an Army Corp of Engineers veteran to serve as an advocate for persons with self taught skills in building maintenance.  

Our objective is to enable persons with self taught skills in maintenance to enhance those skills through training and a SOFES skilled trade certification.  

Each SOFES certified worker helps America close the skilled trade worker gap which increases every year.  America as of 2019 has more than 3,000,000 unfilled skilled trade jobs.    

Through memberships we are able to address barriers that persons with self-taught building maintenance skills face:

  • Discrimination
  • Wages far below union wages
  • Union controlled skilled trades
  • Apprenticeship
  • US M Visas
