TRAINING COURSE OVERVIEW
- NQF 4
- 5 years FM experience in a management or supervisory capacity
This award-winning Facilities Manager qualification designed “by the industry for the industry” aligns the South African sector to the International FM Association and FM ISO41001:2018 standards.
This 2-year occupational qualification aims to empower FM practitioners and build an understanding to organise, control and co-ordinate the strategic and operational management of facilities in public or private organisations.
Each of the seven modules consists of three output-based criteria: knowledge modules, practical skill modules and work experience modules submitted as part of a Portfolio of Evidence (POE) which is assessed and moderated.
The content covers a wide range of topics, from occupational health and safety, financial management and space management, to green innovations. These are defined specifically to equip managers to function in the FM space.
The overarching objectives include:
- Manage client, staff and supplier contracts
- Plan and manage service and support functions required for a sustainable business
- Plan and manage the business support systems and processes (executive functions)
- Analyse and attend to client/user needs to sustain and support the core business
- Fundamentals of Facilities Management
- Principles of Facilities Management and Concepts Underpinning FM
- Facilities Management Leadership and Management
- Corporate Governance and Business Continuity
- Movable and Immovable Asset Management
- Procurement and Contract Management
Delegates earn the SSETA credits when they complete and submit the formative and summative assessments. These form part of a post-training, work-based Portfolio of Evidence (POE) evaluated by an assessor and moderator.
Upon completing the POE and found competent by the assessor and moderator, the SSETA registers the delegate’s results on the National Learners’ Record Database. These results remain a lifelong achievement.
SAFMA conducts an external integrated summative assessment through a written examination of ±6 hours and assesses both the theory and practical skills. The assessments happen at various decentralised sites across South Africa. They use standard assessment question papers and registered invigilators.
SAFMA awards CPD points to registered SAFMA members on the presentation of their Certificate of Attendance.
