The Complete Course on Facilities Management


Facilities like buildings, utility plants, power water distribution networks, production plants, parking lots, and landscaping are integral components in facilities management and have become more flexible, complex, and expensive.

Facilities Management is a significant business sector today. It encompasses integrated facility management and facility asset management and necessitates skilled facilities project manager roles. As one of the most considerable budget expenses, it represents significant cost-saving opportunities while recognizing facility management benefits. Despite the focus on savings, facilities are an essential asset that must be managed carefully.

This course outlines the best practices in facilities management, including the roles of regional facilities manager and action facilities management. Discover the caravan facilities management approach for organizing and leading a successful facilities department—a business within a business.

The course provides facilities and management training courses aimed at effective and efficient operation and maintenance of facilities, harmonizing function, place, and people. With a focus on balancing asset performance (functionality, availability, reliability, safety) with associated costs, covered topics include building and facilities management training, weighing the benefits of handling operations and maintenance in-house versus outsourcing.
