Facilities Planning and Project Management stresses that technical skills are important, but strategy, leadership, and direction will contribute more to the success of your facilities projects than logistical prowess. You will learn to develop strategic facilities plans, plan facilities projects, and effectively implement and evaluate projects.
You will also understand the why and the how of communicating with those employees directly affected by facilities projects, and integrating them into the strategic process. To accomplish this, and to communicate with architects, designers, and general contractors, you will learn the basic symbols and tools you will need to read architectural drawings. The set of drawings included with this coursebook will be used in the course, relating course key concepts to the master case study, a facilities project for a hypothetical company, which is presented throughout the course.
Upon successful completion of this course, learners will be able to:
- Execute post-occupancy evaluations using facilities annual reports
- Organize and plan a successful facilities project
- Assemble a project team
- Use best practices to determine facility needs
- Distinguish among the roles that each employee and/or contractor has in managing a facility
- Grow and implement project management skill sets
KEY TOPIC AREAS:
the value of planning and organizing • planning models • identifying and rating user needs • owned vs. leased developed facilities • managing the planning process • classifying facilities projects • specifications for facilities performance • design development and review • implementing projects • planning occupancy • project closeout

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION AND FINE PRINT:
There is a $100 enrollment fee for individual courses (those taken separately from a certificate or designation program). If you take an individual course, then decide to enroll in a certificate or designation program, the $100 (USD) fee from your first course (only) may be applied toward the $225 (USD) enrollment fee for your first certificate or designation program. There is a $100 (USD) enrollment fee for students enrolling in a second or third certificate or designation program. Fees are nonrefundable and must be paid with or before enrolling in a course, certificate, or designation program.
There is a $50 fee if you would like a hard copy book. We are highly recommending you purchase the book as a reference. The e-books are only available for a 6-month period of time after earning your designation.
Because this is a dynamic industry, specific course requirements are based on date of enrollment. If you are not sure of your particular course requirements, please check with BOMI International.
A request to cancel registration for an educational class must be submitted via email up to seven (7) calendar days before the class starts in order to receive a 100% refund. The textbook must be returned unopened to BOMA Indiana in all cases where a student cancels registration. Once the book has been opened, $200 will be owed, as BOMA Indiana cannot return an opened book to BOMI International.
COMPUTER-BASED TESTING (CBT)
Exams are administered via Computer-Based Testing (CBT) through our testing provider, Pearson VUE. The registration fee provides for one testing session during the six-month eligibility period, which can be scheduled at the students convenience. You should receive an email from Pearson VUE within the first few days of class. If you don't, please tell your instructor right away.
EXAM ELIGIBILITY PERIOD
Students have a six-month eligibility period to schedule and take their exam. For Self-Study students, the eligibility period begins on the date of registration; for Classroom students, the eligibility period begins as of the first day of class. If a student does not take the exam within this period, the student must pay an Exam Administration Fee to begin a new six-month eligibility period.
EXAM ADMINISTRATION FEE (INCLUDES EXAM TRANSFER AND RETEST)
Students who fail an exam or require an additional six months to take the exam will incur an Exam Administration Fee allowing for an additional six-month eligibility period. This fee includes testing and administrative fees and is $100.
To ensure sufficient time to prepare, students should be registered ten (10) business days prior to the class start date. A $100 (USD) late fee will be applied to registrations received thereafter. Additional shipping fees apply and BOMA Indianapolis must pass those fees on to students due to late registrations.
