Throughout the year the FMA, in conjunction with industry stakeholders, develops a range of professional development and training courses.

Professional Development & Training

  • One day training & customised courses: designed to enhance the development of competencies required for the FM professional and best practice techniques. These courses can also be customised to align with your organisation, its policies and using its case studies to enhance your team's understanding and skills application.
