Fundamentals of Facilities Management Practice


Facilities Management has been said to account for up to 80% of the total Real Estate asset lifecycle. This makes FM a very integral aspect for businesses and investors who intends to either reduce their Real Estate operational cost or ensure that their Real Estate assets continue to return high rental or sales value.

Unfortunately, human capacity in FM in Africa is very limited, because there are only very few higher institutions who offer FM at undergraduate level. The effect of this is a very low pool of FM talents for organizations and businesses to draw from; and clearly those who have managed to get into FM roles need to be re-skilled to meet the increasing challenge of managing Real Estate assets for optimal performance.

The Fundamentals of Facilities Management Practice is therefore a two-day intensive online training designed to help businesses improve their FM employee productivity by skilling them for the challenging of optimizing assets and effective and efficient day-to-day running of the Facility. It is also designed for professionals who work in FM-interfacing roles such as Admin, Supply & Procurement, Project Management, and Engineering to understand the fundamentals of FM so they can work together for more productive output of the business.

So, if you’re a young graduate who wants to begin your career in Facilities Management with the right skill and understanding, this training is for you. If you are already working in FM and find it difficult to link your day-to-day operations activities to the Real Estate objectives of your employer, you need to register for this training now.
