BIFM Level 3
The Level 3 programme is intended for those aspiring to enter facilities management or those with little fm experience and who wish to enhance their management skills. A degree is not needed to get started in FM. Level 3 makes it easy to start in FM regardless of one’s background. Learners may be working in front of house or in a hotel job and encouraged to train in fm to acquire more skills. There are plenty of opportunities in fm – everything from shopping centres to hospitals and even skyscrapers.
BIFM Level 4
The level 4 course will be taught on Tuesday/Wednesday evenings over a period of 6/9 months. There is a choice of taking the Award, Certificate or Diploma. We are now running the level 4 Diploma as a qualification in its own right which leads to member grade status of the BIFM with some experience requirements.
Those who achieve at least two units at level 4 to qualify for the Award, or four units to qualify for the Certificate, an opportunity exists to switch to Level 5 Award/Certificate/Diploma. After 26 years of experience in delivering BIFM courses, the college has found that most FM’s recognise Level 4 Certificate/Diploma as the choice qualification. The level 4 route provides a sound foundation of initial learning, for which 6 credits can be transferred to the level 5 Diploma.
The Level 4 programme is intended for those aspiring to become facilities managers or those in middle management with little fm experience and who wish to enhance their specialist and management skills.
