Course Description

The objective of this course is to introduce new or junior employees to the principles and practices involved in facilities management and maintenance in the Middle East. It will also assist senior managers with overseas and local experience, as it will enable them to update their FM best practice methodologies, to understand current market trends, and to acknowledge the impact of UAE laws on the management and maintenance of joint owned property laws.

Attendees will gain valuable insight into the key areas of FM, including: strategy; governance; risk; finance; asset and maintenance management; service delivery (hard, soft, and corporate services); and contract management. In addition, delegates will learn the procedures to prepare a service charge budget. They will also familiarise themselves with government requirements and understand when joint owned property laws apply. The importance of capital expenditures and reserve fund studies will become a point of focus for attendees.

Practical application will be the key driver and motivation for this course. Delegates should be prepared for stimulating discussion and detailed analysis.
