FMA Certificate accredited by RICS
The Facilities Management Association has announced that the FMA Certificate will now officially be recognised by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors.
"This is an extremely exciting partnership for us and our industry," says the FMAs Chris Hoar. "The move will present the opportunity for those who have successfully completed the FMA Certificate, to gain direct entry to the RICS Associate grade of membership."
The FMA Certificate, run by the Facilities Society, takes three months to complete and has the aim of providing students with a theoretical understanding of FM and an opportunity to develop an appreciation of the principles and procedures used within the FM industry.
This initiative signifies the FMA's and RICS' continued investment in the FM sector.
To date, there has been a huge amount of interest in the FMA Certificate with many FMA member companies having already enrolled students including Vinci, Interserve, Compass, Sodexo, Incentive FM, G4S and Servest.
Following the FMA Certificate course, students also have the chance to continue their studies with the FMA MBA. This is a new, unique and exciting opportunity for you/your employees to gain a formal MBA qualification. The blended learning nature of the MBA allows students to continue in their current job role, whilst undertaking independent study and only 20 days of tuition in London.
