The workshop has been developed by CIPFA's consultancy and training team specifically to support the FM Code. Delivered in-house it brings together both the practical and theoretical elements of the FM Code. Initially providing an overview of the Code and the rationale behind its introduction the session moves on to consider how the organisation can start implementation. By focusing on specific areas of the FM code the day will explore how compliance can be evidenced within your organisation. The day will involve a combination of debate and discussion and some pre-workshop preparation may need to be undertaken. Any member of staff within your organisation can attend the workshop. A suitable date for the event should be booked with our training team on purchase of the package.
