"I just wanted to say a huge ‘thank you’ to every one of you for all your help and support throughout the past 18 months during the course of my Level 4 and Level 5 BIFM qualification studies.  It has been an absolutely fantastic experience to work with FM Tutor and (I know it sounds cliché, but….) I really couldn’t have done it without you all.  Everyone has offered not only expertise and subject knowledge but, equally importantly, the motivation, encouragement and a real personal approach to supporting me throughout my assessments.  Even as a distance learner, the personal aspect of the tutoring is not lost – I never once felt as though workshop learners would be any better prepared for their assessments than I was as a distance learner."  - Jack Drummond, 2015

"Everything taught was useful, wish I had done this course when I joined the FM Team"; "I found all the subjects useful as it all relates to the site I work"; "The trainer was a job expert who knew every aspect of FM - I have never enjoyed a session so much"  Delegates at JCI  2-day "Introduction to FM course", February 2014

 

 "The course has been delivered well by a very knowledgeable tutor. It has facilitated a more strategic approach to work as well given me a broader and deeper knowledge in FM.

The course has made me more aware of both issues affecting the FM world and how they may impact on my organisation but also of the interactions between the FM team and end users. This has improved my performance as a manager and FM professional.

To complete the course requires commitment (there is a high workload) but it provides an enormous sense of achievement and satisfaction."

Darren Hopkins, Science Museum, Level 5 Certificate, 2013

 

The course is perfect for Forces Personnel hoping to enter the FM career path.  I have been amazed at how many roles I have been contacted about here in the North East, its definitely a growing industry that can be tapped into with the skills of senior military personnel and the knowledge gained on the course. My advise to any course would be get a good recruiter, Randstad placed me within days, Hays were trying to get me to interviews after I accepted my current role, and anyone wanting a soft landing out of the military Fusion People Defence have a lot of roles available on military estate with firms such as Landmarc and Carillion.

Neil Hamilton, CTP Learner, Level 4 Certificate, 2013

 

Having recently received my Level 4 BIFM Certificate in the post, can I please pass on my sincere thanks for all the help in getting through the assignments. The course, research and the discussions with all the tutors definitely enabled me to talk more confidently and with deeper knowledge of the subject during my one job interview which I took in order to be the FM of the IHC Engineering Business based at the Port of Tyne.

CTP Learner, Level 4 Certificate, 2013

 

The Facilities Manager's Desk Reference is a great book, its helping me through my BIFM level 4 and is a great guide in my new role as an FM.

Learner, Westminster Kingsway College, 2013

 

 Having just received my final achievement for BIFM Level 4certificate. Would just like to say thank you to you all, for the assistance and advice given over the last few months (although seems longer). I thoroughly enjoyed the course on the whole, although have to say found it one of the hardest thing I've done for a while.

CTP Learner, Level 4 Certificate, 2012

 

I started my BIFM level 5 diploma course in February 2011 with Jane Wiggins as my tutor. At first I was completely out of my comfort zone because the course seemed very intense. I spoke to Jane many times in the beginning for clarification of the coursework and Jane was brilliant at explaining what was required. Jane has a huge amount of knowledge of FM, She encouraged me to undertake the coursework which helped with the final assignments to gain the full Level 5 Diploma this summer.

Mandy Cherry MBIFM, UK Property & Facilities Manager, Oxford University Press, 2012

 

The level of support provided by Jane during my BIFM Level 5 Diploma was first class.

Derek Hales, Tata Steel Europe, 2011

 

I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your tutoring and support throughout and with that, I would not have achieved the pass grade that I have got.  Again I’m very grateful for all your advice not just on the course content but on CV and interview tips and techniques. Its been a real pleasure for me

RTC Learner, Level 4 Certificate, 2011

 

Jane is a fantastic tutor with vast experience in FM, and I found her relaxed manner, knowledge and understand truly superb throughout the course. This aided me not only in achieving the relevant Level 4 qualifications in FM but also in finding gainful employment in Estates Management. I am now employed as the Head of Estates for a FE/HE college in Southport and I put part of my success down to Jane’s tuition. If I have a problem I cannot solve I often refer to Jane’s book, Facilities Manager Desk Reference and where that fails I have contacted Jane for guidance over the phone.

Brian Shead, Head of Estates, Southport College,  2010

 

I completed the four week BIFM course at the RTC in Aldershot under Jane Wiggins as the tutor. The level of instruction and professional attitude she carried through all four weeks was excellent and I had every confidence prior to the examination. I have now realised how much knowledge and confidence Jane managed to pass to a large class during the four weeks through my experience in the day to day role as a multi site Facilities Manager
