Training Course Syllabus:

Facilities Management Seminar

Finally, a course for Facility Managers that addresses the challenges, difficulties, and dilemmas of this demanding position!

In this 2 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 (remember the East Coast blackout in 2003?). 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!

This course is based on "best practices" from top facilities managers around the country.

Hundreds of hours of research, study, planning, and fine-tuning go into the production of each of our seminars. This one is no exception. Our course developers have looked at facility management in organizations across the country and analyzed their processes, systems, and approaches. This workshop reflects the latest findings and best practices in facility management today and addresses the up-to-the-minute issues that make this field so difficult to stay on top of.

You'll get tips, tools, and strategies that are proven to work in real-world situations as you learn from case studies and other facility managers' experiences. This course is comprehensive, in-depth, and packed with need-to-know information you can use the very next day you return to your office. Don't miss your chance to attend!

Learn from experts who know the business...

Unlike many seminar leaders chosen for their speaking ability and communication skills alone, our speakers are proven experts in their fields.

This means that your instructor has experience in facilities management and can share his or her knowledge and real life skills with you. Lively discussion, fascinating case studies, experiential activities, and more are all part of the process, and your trainer is skilled at using the latest adult learning techniques to ensure your grasp the most difficult concepts with ease.

Get on board for 2 intensive days of hands-on, in-depth, need-it-now information - no boring lectures here!
