I had researched facilities management courses ireland and this looked the best as it was only one night per week. Online classes also suited me as I didn't want to spend commute time to get into a college or university. Definitely the best facilities manager courses in Dublin.

The short answer is Yes. The Diploma in Facilities Management covers all the core areas and skills needed to work as a Facilities Manager and is well recognised in Ireland and abroad.

It is a wide and varied role, but includes managing the soft and hard services of the building environment: cleaning, security, building maintenance, environmental services, and reception and parking.

The course is medium difficulty. There is no exams only assignments which involve research and completing tasks.
