FM apprentice certification to be managed by SummitSkills

04 April 2016

Certification for apprentices in the FM sector will be issued by SummitSkills, it was announced today.

It has completed a similar role for the building services sector over the last decade, resulting in 23,000 certificates issued within the last four years.

The organisation's new role will see SummitSkills issue completion certificates for apprentices in the FM, cleaning and property sectors.

It estimates that an additional 3,000 certificates a year will now fall within its remit.

SummitSkills will also be involved in working with partners to ensure apprenticeship frameworks for the sector are kept up to date.

The award was made by the Federation for Industry Sector Skills & Standards (FISS).

Its managing director Mark Froud said: "SummitSkills has successfully delivered apprenticeship certification for a number of years.

"Based on this strong track record, it's clear they will seamlessly extend their expertise to what are closely related industries."

Apprenticeship enquiries for the FM, cleaning and property sectors should be directed to Tony Beecher, email
