New BIFM Level 3 Qualifications

16 January 2013

The start of the new year marked the first development in 2013 for the British Institute of Facilities Management’s (BIFM) qualifications. Building on the progression made to date, on 1 January 2013 BIFM launched the new BIFM Level 3 Qualifications in Facilities Management.

The qualifications have been approved by the industry’s sector skills council, Asset Skills, and are accredited on the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF).

Linda Hausmanis, Head of Awarding Organisation at BIFM, said “The launch of the Level 3 qualifications completes the range of qualifications developed and awarded by BIFM. We have Level 2, (level example is equivalent to GCSE A*-C) catering for new entrants to the industry, right through to Level 7 (level example is equivalent to a Masters Degree) challenging experienced strategic FMs. This cements BIFM right at theheart of an FM’s career with opportunities to develop skills, knowledge and competence at whatever level or whatever stage of an individual’s career. This is a great start to 2013, and we have more exciting developments planned over the next 12 months.”

Delivered through BIFM recognised centres, Level 3 qualificationsare suitable for new recruits into the industry, first-line managers and supervisors in FM. There are four Level 3 qualifications available:

? Level 3 Award:
This compromises two mandatory units only totalling 11 credits, giving the learner a succinct overview of basic skills and knowledge.
? Level 3 Certificate (knowledge-based) and Level 3 Certificate in FM practice (competency-based):
With a total of 28 credits required, these Certificates provide learners with a more comprehensive coverage of subjects. They also form part of the Advanced Apprenticeship in FM.
? Level 3 Diploma:
After studying five mandatory units (26 credits)andachieving 22 credits from optional units, the learner will have a comprehensive range of skills, knowledge and understanding at this level.
