Specialist Diploma in Facilities Management

Course Synopsis:

The Specialist Diploma in Facilities Management is designed to prepare learners for a career in facilities management. The course was developed in response to the shortage of professionals in this growing industry. It provides learners with a holistic view of the building environment and enhances their expertise in key areas such as building maintenance, asset management and building automation systems.

Course Objectives:

On completion of the course, learners will be able to:

  • Solve basic mathematical problems in engineering.
  • Operate a Building Automation System for Facilities Management.
  • Apply health, safety and environmental standards at the workplace.
  • Explain the use of electrical power and electrical machines.
  • Use appropriate organizational skills to manage tasks and situations.
  • Operate Computerised Building Maintenance Systems.
  • Discuss the principles underpinning the management of facilities.
  • Describe the various technologies, principles and practices of green building architecture and sustainable environment.
  • Manage building Air-Conditioning and Mechanical Ventilation systems.
  • Use Computer Aided Design (CAD) software to develop engineering Solutions.
