International Workplace launches ‘low-cost FM training programme’ for UK and global markets

As announced at our official launch party on 30 October, International Workplace is launching a dedicated facilities management training programme to meet the demand for high quality, low cost FM training in UK and international markets. 

The first three courses were announced by International Workplace’s Chairman, Lionel Prodgers, at our brand launch in London last night. They are: 

  • Introduction to Facilities Management;
  • Essentials of Property Management; and
  • Understanding FM

Courses will be delivered initially in classroom format, with the programme expanding to provide a comprehensive course curriculum for operatives, managers and executives on a wide range of FM-related subjects, delivered via our award –winning elearning platform, SELMA. 

Courses start in December 2014 and will be targeted at service providers and corporate clients looking to lower learning and development costs while delivering consistent standards, wherever they have operations around the world. 

Course rates are up to 40% lower than existing training providers, with International Workplace’s three-day Understanding FM course saving up to £396 per delegate against the nearest similar course available. 

David Sharp, Managing Director of International Workplace, commented: 

“We’ve been delivering training to the FM market for nearly 20 years, but until now we’ve never developed FM-related course content. Our current research suggests the current market for FM-related training – especially short courses – is over-priced and set in its ways. We’re aiming to use our technology platform to revolutionise course delivery, reduce costs, and give clients greater control over their L&D investment.” 

We have also recently announced the appointment of three new people to our management team, including Finance Director Tracy Roden, Programme Manager Ian Cooke, and Enterprise Solutions Manager Alistair Broom.
