Special features

The content of this course has been cross-mapped with the BIFM Level 4 qualification.

The majority of the training we deliver is either tailored or completely bespoke. This workshop can therefore be delivered entirely as advertised, or it can be tailored to your particular requirements, or we can simply take it as a starting point for a conversation with you before we draft a completely bespoke programme for you – the choice is yours.

His FM career began with the Post Office and Parcelforce, where he was responsible for FM services at 30 sites around the country.
