A 3-Day comprehensive course that will teach you the techniques used by leading facilities managers to run a safe, cost-effective, and employee-friendly environment


Facilities Maintenance & Management is one of the hottest growing fields; not only is it expanding across borders but it’s also rapidly changing within the individual needs of each company.  Larger, more complex facilities are built every day with an impressive array of technology and automated systems. Plant managers are responsible not only for day-to-day operations but also long-term: improving efficiency, keeping up-to-date with the latest trends and codes as well as ensuring safety and sustainability.

Success as a facilities manager means juggling competing needs and expectations with a high level of professionalism and a strong knowledge base. Get the technical skills and management techniques you need to increase your effectiveness, save on budget and ensure quality control without compromising employee satisfaction.

In this 3-Day workshop, prepare to roll up your sleeves and dig in as you master techniques, tools, and new strategies designed to make your job that much easier. We’ll cover tough questions on a variety of facility management “hot buttons” — OSHA requirements, safety issues, risk/security plans, and more. We’ll introduce you to time management tools that will help you get a handle on your day-to-day priorities.

You’ll learn how other facility managers at top organizations solve problems, deal with crises, and handle complaints. You’ll learn how to put a plan for emergencies in place. And, you’ll discover how to decrease your stress levels as you run your facility more efficiently — without killing yourself by putting in longer hours!
