Facilities Management has changed dramatically over the years to include a wide range of responsibilities – from custodial, maintenance and grounds to legal issues, long-range planning, emergency management and much more.
The Facilities Operations Program provides a new, consistent standard for the development of high quality school facilities professionals. The knowledge base lays the groundwork of what a facility professional needs to know to succeed in their chosen field.

Essentials of Facilities Management
Managing school facilities requires a specific knowledge base that isn’t taught elsewhere. Explore school-specific topic areas including accounting and funding sources, required training for facilities staff and inspections to be done in-house, outsourced or by the government. Learn personnel management skills as you understand relevant legislation and discuss evaluations, hiring, leadership styles and discipline.
*All courses require the purchase of Good School Maintenance as a prerequisite for participation. For those of you that don't already have it, the manual is available from the IASB Book Store.
