AMTC Launches Virtual Training Courses

As part of our efforts to support the growth of the Facilities Management Profession in Nigeria, Alpha Mead Training Centre (AMTC) wishes to announce that it has added two virtual courses to its bouquet of FM Training courses.

The new courses are; Space Consolidation, Transitioning & Planning Post Covid-19 and Techniques for Moving from Paper-based FM records to Computerised Maintenance Management System (CMMS)

These courses were created to help Facility Management professionals adapt to the emerging trends in the Facility Management industry because of the Covid-19 pandemic”, said Idowu Somoye, AMTC’s Training Centre Manager.

He noted: “it was imperative that we introduce new courses to what we offered, especially because of the times we are in. Facility Management professionals are operating by a different set of rules now, most people are now working from home, and more people are relying on technology to get work done. All these means that there will be an increase in energy and water consumption as opposed to how it was pre-pandemic”.

“The change also presents a great opportunity for professionals in the built industry to demonstrate the added value they offer in bringing together the space, culture and technology aspects of workplace”.

The courses will bridge gaps such as inadequate space optimization in the workplace and the absence of virtual management system for FMs in the industry especially with the increased use of technology due to the pandemic.

“The new training courses are very important to FMs and HR and FM leaders alike because as the trends and changes are coming, they need to be ready to address these issues. The highlights of the courses – understanding CMMS and Setting up the workplace using global standards will be relevant to FMs so they can continue to ensure functionality, comfort, safety and efficiency of the workplace”.

AMTC is the training arm of Africa’s leading Facilities Management Company – Alpha Mead Facilities – a Global Training Affiliate of the International Facility Management Association’s (IFMA) in Africa and the recognized training centre for the Institute of Workplace & Facilities Management (IWFM) in Nigeria.
