Price per Module is $500 and invoiced per module with 30 day net pay per invoice. Total for all 4 modules is $2,000. Each chapter will have to register their chapter’s attendees. Larry will use the IFMA Credentials:https://www.ifma.org/credentials/overview/ portal for his training sessions. Contact Chapter Treasurer Corey Lee Wilson at (951) 415-3002 or firstname.lastname@example.org for questions, information, and to register.
The four FMP modules covered are:
Leadership & Strategy Essentials – To be effective, facility managers must develop strategies to successfully carry out major initiatives by influencing the decisions and attitudes of others. Effective strategies require that facility managers are able to integrate people, places, processes, and technology. They must be able to align the facility portfolio with the entire organization’s missions and available resources, and to be innovative in order to move forward with their staff and processes to respond to the ever-changing requirements.
Operations & Maintenance – The primary role of facility managers is to manage/oversee an operating facility. To do this, facility managers must have a working knowledge of building systems, structure, interiors and exteriors and grounds so the facility and all of its required systems function efficiently, reliably, safely, securely and in a manner consistent with existing regulations and standards. Effective operation and maintenance of facilities is a complex responsibility in today’s environment.
Project Management – Facility managers make use of all aspects of project management beginning with planning, scoping, scheduling, and ending with evaluating. Project planning and management are core skills in facility management. The skills are particularly important because of the wide range of projects assigned to the facility organization. Projects vary in scope, complexity, duration, and financial risk.
Finance & Business Essentials – Facility managers manage/oversee high-value assets that represent significant financial investment in technology, buildings, structures, interiors, exteriors, and grounds. Since facility managers are typically responsible for the oversight, operation and maintenance of the buildings and grounds, as well as oversight of various service contracts, understanding the basics of finance and business is critical.
