Most of us aren't aware of what it takes to keep a building running smoothly and efficiently, but this is the work of a facilities manager. If facilities management interests you, a facilities management associate degree could be the ticket to propel you into the field.

Online Facilities Management Education

Many facilities managers have risen through the ranks of their organizations. By pursuing an education online, you can have the flexibility of combining on-the-job experience with distance learning. An associate degree can help you gain the credentials you typically need to manage a building, whether for a large business, institution or property management company.

Consider taking a course online in the following topics to supplement your existing skills:

  • Construction and project management
  • Strategic planning
  • Operations and maintenance
