Essentials of Facilities Management Training Seminar

Essentials of Facilities Management Training Seminar is a foundational development program for college union professionals and other facility administrators. This event, co-presented by ACUI: Association of College Unions International and APPA, will take place during the Spring of 2019. The program is designed for professionals who are new to facility management or are transitioning into responsibilities of overseeing facilities.

Program Description and Learning Outcomes

This partner program will bring together facilities professionals from across campus to discuss trends and best practices. Mid-level professionals and those who are new to facilities management will benefit from attending. This seminar also is recommended for anyone who is charged with oversight of a facility and who has not previously had such responsibilities within their portfolio. While the content will be especially topical for college union professionals, the curriculum has been planned to ensure those from other areas of campus will benefit as well.

Content will be centered on the four facility management learning domains (based on skill sets and learning domains from APPA and ACUI):
General Administration & Management
Operations & Maintenance 
Environmental & Energy/Utilities Management
Building Design & Construction

Specific topics include:
Student Employment;
Deferred Maintenance;
Sustainability/Energy Consumption;
Campus Safety;
Capital Planning;
Leadership/Hands On Staff Development;
Technology/Data

This course describes the history, features and principles, and organizational structure of ICS. It also explains the relationship between ICS and the National Incident Management System (NIMS).
