Facility Management Software System Curriculum

FMSS Curriculum

The Facility Management Software System (FMSS) curriculum is divided into three levels of delivery: Basic, Intermediate, and Advanced. The student’s level of expertise will determine which course they will partake.

In addition to the three levels, we offer FMSS training in “modules,” which allows for training to be taken by topic. The course materials are listed below for each level. Resources, such as Powerpoint presentations, student manuals, and desk references are available; see the links below.
