We are now more than a quarter of the way through this year and this is our third newsletter for the year. Last month was a particularly busy month with Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) preparing themselves to be compliant against the new Standards which were enacted on 1st April for existing RTOs, and the Total Facility Expo taking place in Sydney.
In this newsletter we provide a brief overview of our involvement at the Expo and describe some of the opportunities that will be forthcoming as a result. One outcome is the addition of new sections to the newsletter. This month we have added the first new section in which we feature a provider in the Facility Management industry. In the next series of newsletters we are providing an opportunity for facility management practitioners to share their insights to the latest and emerging developments. (more…)
We aim to use this newsletter to inform our readers of what is new and happening within FMedge and what is on that is relevant to our students past and present to advance their knowledge and keep them current in the development and opportunities in FM.
Consistent with our ethos of continuous improvement we are implementing some changes to our systems and processes.
Recently we employed a compliance manager, Ellen Fordham, who is reviewing all of our systems and processed to ensure we are compliant with the standards for Registration and recent statutory requirements that come into force over the coming months. More about Ellen in our New Staff section. The changes to the regulations require us to change some of the things we do. (more…)
Welcome to the first edition of our newsletter for 2015.
The astute reader will note that we have a new Chief Executive Officer at Fmedge. I am also the new author for this newsletter.
Some changes occurred at FMedge toward the end of 2014. These changes are unlikely to effect our current operations and strategy, but rather build on our successes and grow the organisation in the future. We expect these changes to provide positive outcomes for our current and new stakeholders.
Our current strategy of providing the best training at the Diploma level in Facilities Management and Management will continue. We will also continue to build and grow our non-accredited courses and skills packs.
We aim to increase our offerings of high quality training. We are applying to expand our scope of accredited courses in the areas of marketing, business, accounting and want to bring back the Diploma of Project management. (more…)
